Sam Claflin cast in Robin Friday biopic and returning to The Hunstman

9 May 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sam Claflin has signed up to two new films, but the roles he's playing couldn't be more different.

One is a hard-smoking and volatile football player and the other is essentially Prince Charming.

Claflin will play Reading and Cardiff striker Robin Friday in the long-developing biopic of the footballer, according to Empire.

Friday died tragically young at the age of 38 after four years playing professional football - he was as known for his skills on the pitch as off of it for his hard drinking, smoking and womanising.

His other role is a return as Snow White's love interest William in The Hunstman - the sequel to Snow White and the Hunstman, .

Kristen Stewart won't be returning but Charlize Theron is coming back as Queen Ravenna, along with cast additions Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain.

Robin Friday will be directed by Murderball's Henry-Alex Rubin with production starting in the UK later this year. »
