Once upon a time, Viggo Mortensen was in talks to star as the titular Hunstman in Universal's "Snow White and the Huntsman" project. But now, the Hollywood Reporter is saying those talks are done, at least for now.
But Universal must act soon because there are many Snow White projects in active development. Rupert Sanders is still attached to direct, with Kristen Stewart set to star as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen.
Many insiders were saying that Mortensen demanded $8 million plus gross participation to star in the film which Universal balked at allowing the actor to flirt with starring as the villain Zod in the Superman reboot with Zack Snyder directing and Christopher Nolan producing.
The latest news about the Mortensen deal is that Universal is moving on -- yet, it's still unclear whether it's just a negotiating tactic or for reals yo
Mortensen would have been great as Snow White's guide, her own Dumbledore if you may. In this planned version, Snow White is on the run from the Evil Queen until the Huntsman takes her under his wings and teaches her how to fight for her life.
