Sam Claflin to Play Prince in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN

     May 4, 2011


Rupert Sanders’ Snow White and the Huntsman can’t seem to find a huntsman, but they’ve now landed on a prince.  Deadline reports that rising star Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) will play the prince in the re-imagining of the fairy tale which stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen.  The story centers on Snow White escaping from the Evil Queen and learning to fend for herself from the Huntsman.  On Monday, we reported that Chris Hemsworth (Thor) was the frontrunner to play the huntsman but casting leads on that role seem to change from day to day.  If Hemsworth were cast, it would probably change the Snow White-Huntsman relationship from protege-mentor to a love story.

Claflin will star alongside Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore in The Seventh Son before moving on to shoot Huntsman in the fall.  Snow White and the Huntsman is set to open on December 21, 2012.
