Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins, and Toby Jones Joining Ian McShane as Dwarfs in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN

     June 21, 2011


Last night, we reported that Ian McShane had been cast as the leader of the dwarfs in Universal’s Snow White project, Snow White and the Huntsman. Tonight, it looks as if the actor is getting some company as Heat Vision reports that Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie), Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?), and Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger) are in final negotiations to join McShane’s gang of dwarfs. Per the report, Izzard will play the burliest dwarf Tiberius, Hoskins will a blind dwarf named Constantine, and Jones will make a turn as the timid dwarf Claudius. The trio will join a cast that already includes Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, and Kristen Stewart.

In addition to Izzard, Hoskins, and Jones, the report also mentions that Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes) and Steven Graham are currently in talks to play warriors in the pic. Directed by Rupert Sanders, Snow White and the Huntsman features princess Snow White (Stewart) attempting to escape the grasp of her evil stepmother (Theron) with the help of a huntsman (Hemsworth) who trains her to survive. Evan Spiliotopoulos is currently touching up a script by Evan Daugherty. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on June 1st, 2012.
