Ian McShane Cast in Snow White Adaptation
Ian McShane, who was last seen as the infamous Pirate Black Beard in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, has been tapped to join the cast of Hollywood’s most recent take on a classic fairy tale.
Directed by Rupert Sanders, Snow White and the Huntsman is already boasting an all-star cast with Kristen Stewart starring as Snow White alongside other noteworthy performers Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin and Chris Hemsworth. The film features Snow White as a princess who escapes her evil stepmother with the help of a huntsman who was to have killed her but ends up training the princess to survive and fight back.
Universal is still in the process of hiring the remaining members of the project’s cast and crew, but the film is tentatively scheduled for release June 1, 2012.
