Mirror, mirror, on the wall: How do we top Amanda Seyfried as Little Red Riding Hood? With Kristen Stewart as Snow White in Universal's 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' that's how. If the negotiations don't break down, she'll star opposite Viggo Mortensen, who is in talks to play the huntsman, according to Variety. Rupert Sanders will direct the retelling of the classic Grimm Brothers fairy tale that will explore the relationship between Snow White and the man dispatched by the evil queen to kill her. The huntsman becomes Snow White's protector, and the duo go on the run from the nasty monarch. Charlize Theron is in talks to play the queen. The film will go into production this summer for a Dec. 21, 2012, release.

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton may finally be bringing 'Shadows' to light. According to reports in Variety and Deadline, newcomer Bella Heathcote and Jackie Earle Haley are in talks to join the big-screen adaptation of the supernatural ABC soap series 'Dark Shadows.' The long-gestating project will see Depp starring as Barnabas Collins, a nearly-200-year-old vampire; Heathcote (who stars next year in David Chase's first post-'Sopranos' feature film, 'Twylight Zones') would play the young governess of the Collins estate; and Haley would play a con artist who becomes Collins' manservant. Given these castings, the film may just rise up, so to speak. Production on the Warner Bros. film will begin this spring with an as-yet-to-be-determined 2012 release date.
