Rumors flew at the beginning of the year that Kristen Stewart was the favorite to play "Snow White" in the upcoming Snow White & The Huntsman. It looks like those rumors are now a reality.
The 20-year-old actress has been officially been cast according to producer Palak Patel's Twitter. "KStew is officially playing Snow White and her deal is in final negotiations and will close next week," Patel wrote in response to a fan on twitter.
"Official confirmation coming next week," Patel tweeted shortly after. "But we are in final negotiations."
Both tweets were removed from Patel's Twitter page, but not before fans captured screen grabs of the revealing items.
"Snow White and the Hunstman is a darker version of the classic fairytale that follows the titular princess after the evil queen Ravenna calls for her death, centering on the huntsman who disobeys orders and allows the fair maiden to live. The updated story "http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1659300/kristen-stewart-confirmed-snow-white-huntsman.jhtml" target="_blank">will break from convention by having the huntsman mentor and train Snow White to fight off Ravenna herself.
Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron are in negotiations for the roles of the huntsman and the evil queen, respectively.
Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled for release on December 21, 2012.
Do you think Kristen will make a good Snow White?
