Izzard, Jones and Hoskins join Snow White

Izzard, Jones and Hoskins join Snow White

Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins and Toby Jones join the recently-announced Ian McShane as four of the seven dwarfs in Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman”. Eddie Marsan (”Sherlock Holmes”) and Steven Graham (“Gangs of New York”) are also in talks to play a couple of the pale heroine’s squat sidekicks.

Heat Vision says the dwarves in the film, a revisionist take on the fairy tale that stars Kristen Stewart in the title role, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Charlize Theron as the evil Queen, won’t be named Grumpy, Sleepy, Dopey– and so on.

The dwarf names are veering mightily away from the well-known Disney version, with McShane as Caesar, Jones as a timid dwarf named Claudius and Izzard will be Tiberius, described as the biggest and burliest of the crew. Hoskins will play Constantine, a blind dwarf.

Which of these “Snow White” projects do you think sounds the best so far? This one, from director Rupert Sanders, or maybe the Tarsem Singh one with Julia Roberts and Lily Collins? One thing’s for sure they’ll both be quite different takes on the fairytale and likely, one another.
