Chris Hemsworth‘s career is going up. Not only has he been a huge success in the box office winner Thor, but Chris has now officially signed on to play Kristen Stewart‘s Huntsman in Snow White and the Huntsman.
According to Deadline, Chris has closed the deal to star opposite the Twilight beauty in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman.
Are you happy he has signed on?
Chris will also star opposite Charlize Theron and Sam Claflin in the film.
We hope Chris and Sam are ready for the rumors to begin, linking each of them with Kristen! And we hope Robert Pattinson isn’t too jealous!
Universal released a statement (via NME) saying, “In Snow White and the Huntsman, Stewart plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the one girl threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Hemsworth) who was dispatched to kill her. Claflin plays the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.”
Co-producer Palek Patel reportedly Tweeted, “Snow White and the Huntsman will now be released June 1, 2012!”
