I swear when I first read this story, I thought that Lily Collins had jumped ship from Relativity’s Snow White and decided to join Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman. But it’s actually Lily Cole who has been added to the cast alongside Sam Spruell, Variety reports.
According to the trade, the newcomers will play Greta and Finn, henchmen to Theron’s wicked queen who are sent to kill Stewart’s Snow White and Hemsworth’s hunter. Though the Thor star is initially on a quest to take down the fairest of them all himself, he eventually turns into Snow White’s protector. Cole previously was seen in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and There Be Dragons, while Spruell acted in The Hurt Locker and Ed Zwick’s Defiance.
None of this really matters, however, because we’re really only coming to Rupert Sanders’s Snow White to witness the amazingly eclectic collection of gruff character actors he has hired to play the seven dwarfs. Earlier this week, names like Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Izzard, Toby Jones and Ray Winstone were added to the dwarf call sheet, meaning the picture will get far less interesting when Snow White’s pint-sized co-stars are off screen. Snow White and the Huntsman is still on track for a June 1, 2012 opening.
