Kristen Stewart will not be dusting a house with Bambi and Thumper scurrying along with rags and buckets of water in this movie of Snow White & The Huntsman.
This Snow White will have to face the fact that she is being hunted by an evil queen and from the looks of the promo photos released at Comic-Con, this is as far from Disney as you can get.
Stewart, along with costars Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Sam Clafin hit the annual San Diego showcase for upcoming television shows and movies and surprised everyone with the first look at the characters.
The tone of the film is clearly darker than anything we’re used to and Stewart will not be a damsel in distress with that sword, shield and a little Huntsman training.

Kristen Stewart fantasy fairy tale film has finally found it’s leading man.
The upcoming Snow White and The Huntsman has gone through a few possible actors to fill the role (Viggo Mortensen, Hugh Jackman) but Thor star Chris Hemsworth has grabbed up the role of Eric the Huntsman.
Hemsworth will be a bounty hunter working for Ravenna, the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron) who needs Snow White (Stewart) killed to remain fairest in the land. When Eric learns of the Queen’s involvement in his own wife’s death, he helps Snow escape and trains her to fight back.
The film is scheduled to be released in December of 2012.

Two of the hottest actresses under 25 may be making their marks on an iconic fairytale character for movie screens.
Saoirse Ronan is in talks to take on the role for the film The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, which has just signed 24 year-old Armie Hammer from The Social Network, for a part. This version is from Relativity Media.
Kristen Stewart is going to be the lead in the Universal film Snow White and The Huntsman with Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen. Viggo Mortensen, who was in negotiations for the huntsman role is no longer attached as his deal just fell through.
Each script will have a different spin on the original tale, with The Brothers Grimm staying a little closer to the original, perhaps.
Neither Ronan or Stewart would likely take on a movie where Snow is helpless (in fact, in The Huntsman version, Snow White is trained to fight by the man who should have killed her,) so expect both of these versions to have strong female characters.
Both films are due in 2012 – The Brothers Grimm in June and The Huntsman out December.
So let me ask you would you go to either film just because of Stewart or Ronan? Having two Snow White movies in one year – even if they are different – is that too much?
Since we know Hollywood will milk this trend – what’s the next fairy tale you would like adapted?
What do you think?

Kristen Stewart is rumored to be in the lead for a new version on a classic.
Snow White and The Huntsman is promising to be a dark, sinister tale of the Brothers Grimm story (not at all similar to Disney’s seven singing dwarfs version) and Stewart just might be the next Snow White.
Rupert Sanders is directing this tale of an assassin (the Huntsman) hired to kill Snow but he instead trains her to fight the Evil Queen.
Her costar from the upcoming film On The Road, Viggo Mortensen is in negotiations for the Huntsman and Charlize Theron is cast as the Evil Queen but the lead actress is still missing.
Besides Stewart, Riley Keough (her Runaways costar) Bella Heathcote and Sucker Punch’s Emily Browning are all in the running for the coveted part.
