Deadline has finally got the final word on the casting of Snow White and The Hunstman. Kristen Stewart is in the final stage of negotiations for this film.

The film will be written by Evan Daugherty, the script was high up on the 2010 Black List pages, and this new spin on the popular fairy tale sees the titular huntsman being hired by the evil queen to track down her runaway stepdaughter, the fairest in all the land. When he realizes that the queen intends to kill Snow White, he helps her escape, and the pair go on the run.
