This week Variety reported that Lily Cole and Sam Spruell are the final additions to the highly anticipated Snow White and the Huntsman.
The movie, which will be directed by Rupert Sanders, also stars Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron.
In this version of Snow White, the huntsman sent to kill her becomes her mentor and protector instead. Cole will play Greta and Spruell will play Finn, the Queen’s henchman sent to kill the Huntsman and Snow White.
According to the Variety report, the movie is expected to go into production this fall with a release date set for June 1, 2012.
But, a recent story about an upcoming casting call for “men who are under 4ft 6in to appear alongside the 5ft 9½in actress in a new film” states that “filming will mainly take place in London and the South-East from next month until December.”
The casting call is open globally so if you fit the bill you can contact Casting Collective for more information.

Pairing up for a rare red carpet outing, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner were side-by-side at the 2011 Los Angeles Film Festival on Tuesday night (June 21).
The "Twilight" co-stars both wore big smiles on their faces as they meandered about the Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE venue for the nighttime screening of "A Better Life".
As for the appearance, Kristen and Taylor were on-hand to support the director of "A Better Life," Chris Weitz, who also directed the "New Moon" installment of their ulta-popular "Twilight" franchise.
Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins and Toby Jones join the recently-announced Ian McShane as four of the seven dwarfs in Universal’s “Snow White and the Huntsman”. Eddie Marsan (”Sherlock Holmes”) and Steven Graham (“Gangs of New York”) are also in to play a couple of the pale heroine’s squat sidekicks.
Heat Vision says the dwarves in the film, a revisionist take on the fairy tale that stars Kristen Stewart in the title role, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Charlize Theron as the evil Queen, won’t be named Grumpy, Sleepy, Dopey– and so on.
The dwarf names are veering mightily away from the well-known Disney version, with McShane as Caesar, Jones as a timid dwarf named Claudius and Izzard will be Tiberius, described as the biggest and burliest of the crew. Hoskins will play Constantine, a blind dwarf.
McShane will play Caesar, the leader of the dwarfs, opposite Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth.
Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it’s off to Snow White and Huntsman that Ian McShane will go.
The actor, currently seen on screen as Blackbeard in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, has signed to play one of the dwarfs in Universal’s Snow White adventure movie.
The project, being directed by Rupert Sanders, is a revisionist take on the fairy tale and features Snow White (Kristen Stewart) as a princess who escapes her evil stepmother (Charlize Theron) with the help of a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) who was to have killed her but now trains the princess to survive and fight back.
The movie is on track for an August production start. Universal will release the film in theaters June 1, 2012.
McShane will play Caesar, the leader of the dwarfs. Universal is in the process of casting the rest of his crew. With Universal and Relativity Media racing separate Snow White projects into theaters next year (Relativity's untitled project also is ramping up production and is currently set to hit theaters in March), there could be serious competition to find strong character actors to fill the roles.

A lot of Kristen Stewart's co-stars have gushed about what it's like working with the star of the Twilight film franchise, but few have been more enthusiastic than Kristen's On the Road castmate Garrett Hedlund.
Hedlund was charmed, it seems, by Kristen's abilities in the kitchen. When asked about Stewart's tortilla soup, Hedlund exclaimed, "It's incredible. Perfect. She's honed it."
Fans have been looking for ways to recreate Stewart's signature recipe, which she graciously shared with Vogue:
• 2 tbsp. Vegetable oil
• 1 can diced tomatoes
• 1 yellow onion, diced
• 2 jalapeño peppers, chopped
• 2 bell peppers, chopped
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 3 tbsp. ground cumin
• 4 cups chicken broth
• 2 tsp. paprika
• 2 tsp. garlic salt
• 2 tbsp. chili powder
• 1 avocado, diced
• 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
• Fresh cilantro, chopped
• 2 flour tortillas
• Lime wedges
• Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
• Cook garlic, onion and cumin for a few minutes, until the onions are translucent.
• Add bell peppers, cook until tender — 2 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently.
• Stir in broth, tomatoes and jalapeños.
• Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring periodically.
• Cut tortillas into 2-inch wide strips, grill for a few minutes until toasted.
• Serve the soup in bowls and top with condiments.
The studio has hired Hossein Amini to do a rewrite of the film, Deadline reports, which stars Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth in the title roles. Amini, who wrote Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, will polish the Evan Spiliotopoulos draft of the picture, which is racing to meet a June 1, 2012 release date.
There’s no indication whether this is a total rewrite or just a “tightening up” job, though we’d assume that given the short production window, Amini won’t be moving acts around or drastically shifting perspective on what’s supposed to be a bold interpretation of the classic Snow White fairy tale.
Kristen Stewart is a domestic goddess!
The Twilight actress has cooked up and even bigger accomplishment than being a part of one of the biggest movie franchises of all time.
Kristen is still bubbling over with pride at having cooked a meal for cast and crew on the latest in the blockbuster series.
“I had about 20 people back to mine and I cooked for all of them. I was so proud,” says Kristen.
“I cooked for like 20 people. We had steaks and I even made the marinade. I started at about two in the afternoon and everybody loved it so I’m pretty pleased with myself.”
GLAMOUR celebrated the most talented and brilliant women in the world last night at the Glamour Women of the Year awards. The paparazzi went crazy for Twilight star Kristen Stewart who, fresh from winning the Best Female Performance Award at the MTV Awards on Sunday night, was in attendance to present the Man of the Year Award to Tron star Garrett Hedlund.
The first tagline for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 has been unveiled by the new official website for the film, BreakingDawn-TheMovie.com!
It reads, “Forever is only the beginning.”
As with the first official teaser poster for the film, the phrase is vague but also quite appropriate for the storyline.
Do you like it? I really do.
The taglines we've seen for the prior films are as follows:
Twilight - "When you can live forever what do you live for?"
New Moon - "What do you do when the one thing you live for leaves you?"
Eclipse - "It all begins with a choice."
The Breaking Dawn tagline is hands-down the best one so far. Twilight's was good because it hinted at Edward's circumstances in the story; New Moon's was probably very difficult to write because of the nature of the story, so I can appreciate it; and Eclipse's was centered on the love triangle aspect of the story. They were all befitting and nice, but I think Breaking Dawn's sends more of a message and opens up a few more expectations from those "in the know" about the book's events (which, who isn't at this point?).
We know Russell Brand does stand-up comedy but we didn't know he did impressions as well.
Comic-turned-actor Russell Brand can however add impressionist to his already glittering CV, after wowing everyone at OK! HQ with his impression of actress Kristen Stewart in The Runaways.
Mr Katy Perry almost had us fooled it was K-Stew for a minute, as we spied him in with a black mullet, skinny jeans, midriff-baring tank top and Converse.
However, it was the rather manly beard that let him down - something we're sure the Twilight beauty couldn't grow even if she wanted to. Being a pretty girl and all.
Believe it or not, Russell wasn't doing a spoof, but was actually filming on the set of his new movie, Rock of Ages.
Since film fans made "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" the most nominated film leading into the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, we had to return the favor with some "Twilight" goodies during the big show.
"Twilight" leading lady Kristen Stewart and her main men, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, will be presenting an exclusive clip from the saga's highly anticipated fourth film, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," during the awards show, airing Sunday live at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
