Sean Bean’s character might be dead and gone from the hit show Game of Thrones, but that doesn’t mean Bean is slowing down. He’s in talks to land himself a plum role in Relativity Media’s Snow White film. Did we happen to mention Game of Thrones was recently nominated for an Emmy?
Anyway, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Sean Bean is finalizing a deal to take on the role of Snow White’s father in the currently untitled film.
The take on a classic fairytale is filming in Montreal right now and stars Julia Roberts as the evil queen, Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the prince and Lily Collins as Snow White.
Now, Relativity Media’s take on Snow White is not to be confused with another film on the same subject. Universal also has plans to debut the heroine’s tale, only in a slightly different way. Universal’s take on Snow White is titled Snow White and the Huntsman and stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the evil queen. It will also veer a bit more from the original version, with more of an action story.
Relativity Media’s Snow White film is scheduled to hit theaters on March 16, 2012, while Universal’s will hit theaters on June 1, 2012.
With dueling Snow White films set to invade theaters, which one are you most likely to see — both, one or none? Tell us, we want to know.
