It looks like the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, dubbed The Huntsman (due to the lack of Snow White – clever, that), has gained another strong actress in the form of  Jessica Chastain.

The Interstellar and  Zero Dark Thirty actress will join Chris Hemsworth as the titular Huntsman, Charlize Theron as the witch and Emily Blunt who will be the new villain of the piece. Special Effects supervisor Cedric Nicolas-Troyan will direct.

Kristen Stewart will not be returning as Snow White.

The sequel is set for release on April 22, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
