On Monday, it was reported that Chris Hemsworth was in talks to take over the Huntsman role in Universal's revisionist fairy tale Snow White and the Huntsman. Today it has been confirmed that the Thor actor will play the part.

Universal has taken a long and winding road towards finding its Huntsman to star opposite Kristen Stewart, the movie's Snow White. Viggo Mortensen and Hugh Jackman both passed on the role, and at one point, Joel Edgerton had considered taking on the challenge.

Chris Hemsworth joins a cast that also includes Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, who hires the Huntsman to kill Snow White, and Sam Claflin as the Prince and lover of our dark haired, dwarf-loving heroine.

An exact start date for Snow White and the Huntsman hasn't been revealed yet, but director Rupert Sanders will probably have his fine cast in front of a camera before the year is out.

Snow White and the Huntsman was released June 1st, 2012 and stars Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin, Sam Spruell, Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone. The film is directed by Rupert Sanders.
