According to Heat Vision Sean Bean, who was most recently seen in HBO’s brilliant first season of Game of Thrones, is in final negotiations to join the cast of Tarsem Singh’s Snow White movie.
Bean will play Snow White’s father and (as we’ve come to expect with Sean Bean roles) his character is unlikely to make it to the end credits.
Tarsem Singh’s movie begins with the evil stepmother (Julia Roberts) killing Snow White’s father and destroying the kingdom. Snow White (Lily Collins) then bands together with a gang of seven quarrelsome dwarves to reclaim what is rightfully hers. Armie Hammer will also appear as Prince Andrew Alcott.
Relativity Media recently moved the release date forward from June 29 to March 16, 2012 in order to get the advantage over Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman which stars Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron and hits June 1, 2012.
Filming is currently taking place in Montreal.
