When word broke yesterday of Jessica Chastain’s casting in The Huntsman, a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, the trade papers were quick to say the details of her role are being kept secret. Only The Wrap offered any tangible information, describing Chastain’s character as being a love interest to Chris Hemsworth’s lead. I can start by backing that up.
In fact, The Warp cleverly word their description of the basic plot too, saying that the movie “expands the universe established in the first film to reveal how the fates of two characters, the Huntsman Eric and Ravenna, intersected before they met Snow White.” This description seems to be in step with ongoing reports that the film is a prequel.
But it isn’t. Not really.
There are scenes, for sure, that take place before the first film and fulfill the function described by The Wrap. »

Details on Chastain’s role are unfortunately vague, so we don’t know if she’ll be on the Huntsman’s side, or if she’ll join forces with Blunt, whose character the Ice Queen is seeking revenge for the death of Theron’s evil queen in Snow White and the Huntsman.

Nick Frost is also confirmed to be returning for The Huntsman, due out next Spring.

Universal is quickly assembling a stellar cast for The Huntsman, its upcoming attempt to turn 2012’s box office smash Snow White & the Huntsman into a franchise property. Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain has closed a deal to star opposite Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron in the film, which takes place before Kristen Stewart’s Snow White ever entered the picture.
Emily Blunt is also primed to join The Huntsman, which tells the story of how the title character (Hemsworth) first crossed paths with Ravenna (Theron). Details beyond that are vague, but Blunt is rumored to be playing the Snow Queen, Ravenna’s powerful sister who zeroes in on the Huntsman in hopes of getting revenge after he comes searching for a stolen magic mirror. No word on the specifics of Chastain’s role just yet.
Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, a VFX specialist who was Oscar-nominated for his work on the first film, will helm, »

Oscar nom Jessica Chastain is the latest high-profile star to join "The Huntsman," Universal's spin-off of the 2012 blockbuster "Snow White and the Huntsman." It's taken a while for this big budget fantasy flick to get off the ground, but with the recent hire of Emily Blunt and now Chastain, it seems this team is just about ready to go back into the woods.
Chris Hemsworth is returning as the eponymous huntsman, alongside Charlize Theron as Ravenna, the best and meanest screen queen. The project was originally intended as a sequel, but after considerable behind-the-scenes drama, Kristen Stewart's Snow White and director Rupert Sanders were banished from the land. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who was the second unit director on "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Maleficent," will be making his feature-length directorial debut, with a script most recently polished by Frank Darabont. Darabont was also attached to direct but left due to "creative differences. »

Snow White And The Huntsman’s sequel, simply known as The Huntsman already boasts Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt in its cast. But it’s boosting its powerhouse actress quotient by one, with Jessica Chastain signing on to join them.Chris Hemsworth is back for the film, which is still wrapping much of its story in a mysterious magical mist. But all signs so far point to it serving as a prequel to the Snow White story, detailing how Hemsworth’s Eric met the evil queen Ravenna (Theron) before Kristen Stewart’s heroine entered the picture. There has been talk of magic mirrors and mystical quests, but beyond that, director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan and Universal aren’t saying. Blunt is reportedly playing Ravenna’s equally powerful sister, but Variety’s report doesn’t say how Chastain will factor into the story. Perhaps she’ll have more of a connection to Hemsworth? »
She’ll play an unspecified role alongside Emily Blunt and original stars Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. Hemsworth and Theron return as the title character and Ravenna respectively. Nick Frost was seemingly out of the picture but struck a deal with Universal to reprise his dwarf character Nion – one of two featured in the new film. Toby Jones won’t be returning due to failed negotiations.
Story details have yet to be released but the dark fairy tale adventure follows on from 2012’s Snow White And The Huntsman. Rupert Sanders is replaced as director by FX creator Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, and Frank Darabont has written the script. Joe Roth produces.
Chastain is firmly in fantastical territory. Having explored the universe in Interstellar, »

Jessica Chastain will be in The Huntsman, Universal's forthcoming Snow White-less spin-off of 2012's badass Snow White redux, Deadline reports. Chastain's role is unknown, but, in some capacity, she'll join Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Nick Frost, and Emily Blunt. The movie is slated for an April 2016 release, and will serve as a prequel to show how the titular huntsman and Queen Ravenna crossed paths before meeting Snow White. Blunt will reportedly play this film's central villain, The Snow Queen, so maybe Chastain will play a young intelligence officer hellbent on coordinating the assassination of said villainous ruler. »

It turns out that The Huntsman is being set up as a rather star-studded affair. Joining the previously announced Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, it has now been confirmed that the movie will be bringing aboard Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt and Nick Frost (who played the dwarf Nion in the sequel's predecessor, Snow White and the Huntsman). This news comes from Deadline, which got the scoop on the Jessica Chastain story and confirmed reports from back in January that said Emily Blunt was in talks. There are currently no details available about the role that Chastain will be playing in the movie, but Blunt is said to be playing a very key role. According to previous reports, she will be Charlize Theron.s evil sister and the central villain of the film, The Snow Queen. The situation with Nick Frost is a bit more tricky.

It sounds like there's going to be some powerful female talent for The Huntsman, the prequel to the 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman. Chris Hemsworth is returning in the title role, with Charlize Theron back as Queen Ravenna, and Emily Blunt was previously reported to join the cast as a new villain as well. Now Deadline reports A Most Violent Year and Interstellar star Jessica Chastain is joining the cast as a love interest for Hemsworth's character. This is such a great cast, but the dullness of the first film is keeping me from actually being excited to see what they do in this stark fairytale universe. Read on! This prequel takes place before Snow White ever crosses paths with Ravenna and will follow the huntsman Eric as he is sent on a quest to find the stolen magic mirror, which puts him on a path to face something from his past, »

Golden Globe-winning Zero Dark Thirty star Chastain has been cast as the Huntsman's (Hemsworth) love interest in the spinoff.
The prequel was originally supposed to be directed by Frank Darabont, but he quit the project in January.
Even with Kristen Stewart out, the cast of The Huntsman just keeps getting more interesting. Jessica Chastain is reportedly joining Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron in the Snow White and the Huntsman follow-up. Meanwhile, Emily Blunt has closed her deal to star, and Nick Frost is poised to return after all. More on the Huntsman […]

Kristen Stewart's career has evolved from Twilight to the point she's become the first American actress to win a Cesar award for her work in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria (add that one to your 2016 Oscar contenders list). So it's no real surprise she won't be returning to star in the Snow White and the Hunstman sequel, but the actresses that are lining up for the cast is a bit of a surprise. To me at least. Said to be titled The Huntsman, both Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are said to be back as Eric, the film's title character and Ravenna respectively, as the story will be a prequel to the first film. The narrative will find Eric and Ravenna crossing paths long before Snow White ever entered the picture as he is sent to find a magic mirror, causing him to cross paths with the Snow Queen. »

The Huntsman, Universal’s upcoming sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, may have lost its high-profile director when Frank Darabont stepped down and was replaced by Cedric Nicolas-Troyan; but that hasn’t stopped the film from attracting some A-list acting talent. … Continue Reading →

We're not gonna give Jessica Chastain too much shade for this decision, because 99% of time she works with auteurs on movies both big ("Interstellar") and small ("Miss Julie"), to name a couple of examples. Still, it's a bit curious to see the actress stepping into a blockbuster sequel/spinoff, but hey, maybe that's the appeal. Anyway, Chastain is joining Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, and Emily Blunt in "The Huntsman." Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, the visual effects supervisor on "Snow White And The Huntsman," will direct the flick and make his feature debut, replacing Frank Darabont. Big shoes to fill, on an even bigger project. But certainly in the acting department he's being given a first rate group of people to work with in this movie that focuses on the titular huntsman and Ravenna, and how they crossed paths before Snow White came into the picture. We're not sure this is a tale that's aching to be told, »
