As "Twilight" faces its final days, we have the bittersweet experience of watching its stars scatter and find new projects. While Kristen Stewart may not have gotten the big paydays and press releases that her costar Taylor Lautner did, she isn't exactly lacking for high profile projects. According to Deadline, she has finally decided to take another trip into fantasy, and has joined "Snow White and the Huntsman."
"Snow White and the Huntsman" is a new take on the Grimm fairy tale. It starts out the same -- but instead of sending her off to live with dwarves, this huntsman disobeys the queen's orders to kill the Fairest of Them All by teaching Snow how to survive in the forest.
There, our knowledge of the script ends, but we suspect she and the prince might head back to the castle to send the evil queen packing.
Stewart may have played in fantasy before, but she's never gotten to be on the action end of things, so this will be a fun departure for her. She's joined by a good cast, as Charlize Theron plays the queen, and Viggo Mortensen is in negotiations to play the huntsman. (Aragorn is definitely who you want teaching you the ways of the forest!)
Unfortunately, you won't get a glimpse of medieval Stewart until August, when filming is set to begin.
