If it's crap ... We'll tell you
When multiple films on the same topic are in production (as often happens in Hollywood), it's usually a neck-and-neck race between studios to see who can finalize their cast and begin filming. Case in point: Universal's 'Snow White and the Huntsman' vs. Relativity Media's 'The Brothers Grimm: Snow White'.
Closest to the finish line is Universal's 'Snow White and the Huntsman', starring Kristen Stewart as a different kind of Snow White who trains under the Huntsman's tutelage to fight and defend herself against the Evil Queen (played by Charlize Theron). An unfortunate step backwards for the production is the breakdown in negotiations for Viggo Mortensen, who was being looked at to play the aforementioned Huntsman. Due to a key dispute over Mortensen's salary (the actor wanted a reported $8 million to star in the film), Universal has decided to move on and resume open casting once again. No word yet on possible contenders for the role.
One studio's loss is another's gain, however. Reality's 'The Brothers Grimm: Snow White' just added 'Social Network' actor Armie Hammer as the prince in a tale about a princess who bands together seven dwarves in order to reclaim her kingdom after the death of her father. Julia Roberts is slated to portray the Evil Queen in the film, which has yet to cast a Snow White.
Only time will tell which - or if both - will grace the silver screen at a theater near you.
