Kristen Stewart's "Snow White and the Huntsman", which is currently in the making, will be a triology.
All Kristen fans can now rejoice as she will be seen getting more screen space in the movie than anticipated earlier. In an interview with Mtv's Josh Horowitz, Kristen said that she was very excited about her new role as the warrior princess. She has already started training for the role and is apparently learning to ride horses.
Talking about her role, Kristen says that she is definitely not a damsel in distress in this movie and that it will be an action packed ride.
She says that her biggest challenge, however will be making it through the whole shoot with that bulky 50-pound armour of hers.
The twist in this tale of Snow White is that the Huntsman who is ordered to kill Snow White becomes her protector instead, and helps her in her quest to destroy the evil queen.
Also starring Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Charlize Theron as the evil queen, Snow White and the Huntsman is sure to grab many eyeballs. The expected release date for the movie is June 1, 2012.
Interestingly, Dakota Fanning, Sairose Ronan, Riley Keough , Alicia Vikander and Bella Heathcote were all considered for the role of Snow White but it finally landed in Kristen's lap.

Two Snow White films are currently racing to the big screen, and the latter film to be released, “Snow White and the Huntsman” showed off its cast and producers during a Hall H presentation at Comic-Con Saturday afternoon. Even though production has yet to start, stars Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin were on hand to talk about their characters and show off initial costume fittings.
How lucky are we to have such a handsome and talented guy playing our prince? ;)

"...The Universal Pictures panel followed, presenting the first look at the cast and concept art of Snow White and the Huntsman. As large crowds piled into the auditorium, the moderator introduced first-time film director Rupert Sanders, presenting a reel of his previous work on video game commercials to perk the audience’s excitement for this freshman filmmaker. Sanders has an obvious eye for camera movement and actor blocking, as witnessed in his superbly crafted Halo 3 and Call of Duty spots. Hollywood producer Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland) accompanied Sanders, telling the crowd the filmmakers “want to make the definitive version of the Grimm’s Fairy Tale, on a scale of Lord of the Rings.”
Cheers erupted when the attractive cast strutted onto stage, including Thor’s Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, and Twilight’s Kristen Stewart. The film hasn’t even begun shooting yet, so Sanders and Roth depended heavily on concept art with the actors in costume to create buzz about the film’s prospects. A low budget (by Hollywood standards) test short film directed by Sanders also showed his tonal intent with the material, which looks like an impressionist cross between the visual styles of Zach Snyder and Tarsem Singh. Sanders confirmed his desire for a moody approach by saying, “It’s not going to be a little girl sitting by a well with tweety birds.”
Luckily, the panel saved the best for last. One of the final images shown was of the “eight dwarfs” lined up in battle garb, an impressive group played by the likes of Ray Winstone, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, and Nick Frost just to name a few. “This is my version of a British SAS squad,” Sanders hilariously mused, rousing the crowd one last time before departing the stage. We should all get ready for some revisionist fairytale mythology to be released in summer 2012..."
