The sequel to “Snow White and the Huntsman” already won’t feature Kristen Stewart’s Snow White. Now, Deadline reports, most of her seven dwarves are getting axed, too. Only two dwarves will be in the “The Huntsman,” though it’s unclear exactly which two.
It is known that Nick Frost (“Cuban Fury”), Toby Jones (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) and Eddie Marsan (“Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows”) will definitely not be in the movie. Marsan has a scheduling conflict with his work on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan.” And Bob Hoskins died last year, so he won’t be part of the project either.
“The Huntsman” is a prequel that will show the titular character (Chris Hemsworth) and Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) crossing paths before the events of the first movie. Emily Blunt is on board to play a villain, reportedly a Snow Queen who is Ravenna’s sister.
“The Huntsman” is set to be released April 22, 2016.
