Kristen Stewart, the superstar actress who plays Bella Swan in the Twilight film series, is in final negotiations to take on another iconic literary character in Snow White and the Huntsman. The film marks the feature directorial debut of Rupert Sanders, and Kristen Stewart will join a cast that already includes Charlize Theron and Viggo Mortensen. Palek Patel, who is producing the film with Joe Roth, tweeted that the actress is in negotiations to take on the title role.

If the production gets underway according to its current schedule, shooting will start in August, three months after she completes work on Breaking Dawn, the final installment in the Twilight saga.
