Yesterday, Ian McShane was cast as leader warrior dwarf, Caesar in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN. Now three other actors are joining him: Bob Hoskins, Eddie Izzard and Toby Jones.
The dwarves are far from the Disney version as indicated by the names and descriptions: “Jones as a timid dwarf named Claudius and Izzard will be Tiberius, described as the biggest and burliest of the crew. Hoskins will play Constantine, a blind dwarf.” They’ve also decided to go the Peter Jackson route by casting normal sized actors and shrinking them down. Eddie Marsan and Steven Graham are also in negotiations for dwarf roles.
Rupert Sanders will be helming the story which is, “a revisionist take on the fairy tale and features Snow White (Kristen Stewart) as a princess who escapes her evil stepmother (Charlize Theron) with the help of a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) who was to have killed her but now trains the princess to survive and fight back.”
