If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Okay, seriously now... the production battle between Relativity Media's 'The Brothers Grimm: Snow White' and Universal's 'Snow White and the Huntsman' is just getting ridiculous. Recently, Relativity thought they struck a serious blow when they signed up nearly every recognizable dwarf actor they could for their band of dwarfs. However, now it seems Universal has taken that in stride and decided, rather than cast dwarf actors, that they will instead cast bigger name actors in the roles and simply shrink them to size using camera trickery and CG (like Peter Jackson did with the primary hobbit actors in 'The Lord of the Rings'). To that end, they have signed 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor Ian McShane to portray Caesar - the leader of the dwarfs.
McShane - who plays Blackbeard in 'Pirates' - will lead his band of dwarfs to aid the princess Snow White (played by Twilight "actress" Kristen Stewart) in her battle against her evil stepmother, the Queen (Charlize Theron). The film is a reimagining of the classic fairy tale in which the queen orders Snow White's death, but the huntsman who is sent to kill her (Chris Hemsworth) takes pity on her and instead trains her to survive and fight back.
McShane - who is no stranger to fairy tale-based films - has previously done voicework for Dreamwork's 'Shrek the Third' and is currently filming Bryan Singer's 'Jack the Giant Killer', a revisionist take on the 'Jack and the Beanstalk' tale.
