Chris Hemsworth is quite the “It” boy these days. The Thor star has officially been offered the role of the huntsman in Snow White and the Huntsman, co-starring Kristen Stewart as the female lead, EW.com reports.
The huntsman role had once been attached to both Viggo Mortensen and Hugh Jackman, but it seems that after the $66 million opening week “Thor” enjoyed, Hemsworth has landed as a frontrunner. Reports that Hemsworth was being eyed for the part surfaced earlier this month. Now the Australian actor signing on for the project seems to be hinged on whether or not shooting for The Avengers will get in the way.
Based on the legendary fairy tale, Snow White and the Hunstman follows the titular princess after the evil queen Ravenna calls for her death, centering on the huntsman who disobeys orders and allows the fair maiden to live. The updated story will break from convention by having the huntsman mentor and train Snow White to fight off Ravenna herself. Directed by Rupert Sanders, Snow White and the Hunstman is scheduled for release on December 21, 2012.
While Hemsworth’s participation hasn’t been inked just yet, Stewart has found her Prince Charming in British actor Sam Claflin, who will soon be seen in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides:
“I’m very excited,” he recently told MTV News. “I’m a big fan of her work. I’m truly sort of flabbergasted — that’s a good word, I love that. I’m just looking forward to getting my teeth into something new as well,” Claflin continued. “I’ve never had so much fun [as I did] doing [‘Pirates’] … Being able to get my teeth into something new is something I’m really looking forward to.”

With Thor expected to have a $60 million debut at the box office this weekend, Chris Hemsworth has quickly become Hollywood’s man of the moment. So, what roles will he be tackling next?
Red Dawn: Hemsworth’s fit physique will come in handy playing Jed Eckert in Dan Bradley’s action-packed remake of the 1984 film (originally starring Patrick Swayze), in which a group of teenagers try to save their town from an invasion of North Korean soldiers (originally Soviets). The film is set to hit theaters sometime this year.
The Cabin in the Woods: The Aussie actor joins Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and Jesse Williams in Drew Goddard’s 3D horror film. Co-written by Joss Whedon and produced by MGM, the film does not yet have a release date.
The Avengers: Hemsworth will reprise his role as Nordic god, Thor, in Marvel’s super-hero mash-up set to hit theaters April 2012. The film also stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Chris Evans (Captain America) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner).
Snow White and the Huntsman: No role has been confirmed, but it is rumored that he’s being considered for the lede male role in the Universal Pictures’ pic starring Kristen Stewart.
