25 February 2015

She was last seen in A Most Violent Year and she returns to cinemas with Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak in October and word is that gorgeous sought after actress Jessica Chastain will star opposite Chris Hemsworth in the Snow White and the Huntsman prequel.

Vulture reports that the Golden Globe winning Zero Dark Thirty star has been cast as the Huntsman's (Hemsworth) love interest in the spinoff.

Chastain joins the cast of Charlize Theron who will return as Queen Ravenna and Edge of Tomorrow's Emily Blunt is expected to play a new villain.

Kristen Stewart is not reprising her role as Snow White, as The Huntsman will be set before the events of the first film.

Stepping into the Director's chair is Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who took over from Frank Darabont who exited the project in January.

Chastain returns to cinemas with the aforementioned Crimson Peak this October and Ridley Scott's The Martian in November alongside Kate Mara.
