Starry cast gathers as The Huntsman prepares to shoot in the UK
A seriously A-list cast is assembling in the UK for a late April shoot on The Huntsman, the prequel to the 2012 feature Snow White and the Huntsman.
With the main leads Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron back on board, it had been announced recently that Jessica Chastain would also be joining the project along with Emily Blunt.
With Nick Frost confirmed as the returning dwarf Nion, it has now been announced that he will be joined by new dwarves Rob Brydon (Cinderella, The Trip to Italy), Alexandra Roach (Testament of Youth, Cuban Fury) and Sheridan Smith (Cilla, Mrs Biggs).
The film has its base at Pinewood Studios’ main HQ near London but is also heading out on location in Wales. Specific locations have yet to be locked down, but the first film used the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is set to direct – having replaced Frank Darabont at the start of this year – with Joe Roth of Roth Films producing.
