    UNIVERSAL'S SNOW WHITE PROJECT WILL HAVE EIGHT DWARFS, IAN McSHANE IS THE FIRST


    We all know that Universal Pictures and Relativity Media are both producing their own takes on the Snow White movie projects. You can read the distinguished points and differences that set both movie apart on this article I posted last month at this link.

    Once again, I want to remind you that this two projects are not the same. Points to ponder, once again are that:
    • UNIVERSAL'S Snow White and the Huntsman has Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. Release date is June 1 next year and directed by Rupert Sanders.
    • RELATIVITY's Untitled Snow White Project has Lily Collins, Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer. Release date is March 16.
    For some update on Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman, it is now revealed that the Universal's version will have eight dwarf instead of traditional seven. In addition to that, their names will be after the Roman rulers. It seems like they have found the first dwarf, in the form of Ian McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides).

    McShane is casted as Ceasar, the oldest of the eight, and an enemy to the Queen and old friend to Eric, the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth). The complete list of the eight dwarfs are as follow:

    • Caesar: the eldest, with the longest beard.
    • Nero: the angry one.
    • Tiberius: the biggest and burliest.
    • Hadrian and Trajan: the twins.
    • Constantine: solemn and blind.
    • Claudius: the timid one.
    • Gus: young, unbearded, seemingly smitten with Snow White.

    Rupert Sanders will direct Snow White and the Huntsman from a script by Evan Daugherty. The movie will follows Eric, the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) been charged by the evil queen (Charlize Theron) with killing Snow White (Kristen Stewart). Instead of killing her, Eric mentors her in the ways of survival and combat. Sam Claflin (Ian McShane’s co-star in the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film) will play the Prince in the movie. Shooting is set to start in August, for June 1, 2012 release.

    On another development, Relativity's Tarsem Singh's Untitled Snow White Project has began principal shooting a few days ago.
