Johnny Depp Replacing Tom Hardy in 'Snow White'?

Johnny Depp has been offered the male lead in Universal’s Snow White and the Hutsman, according to The Wrap.

Inception star Tom Hardy was reportedly close to signing the deal for that role. Instead, he’ll be focusing on a major part in the upcoming Batman movie.

Sources tell JustJared.com that Charlize Theron will be playing the evil queen in the new adaptation, which is slated to hit theaters December 21, 2012.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Johnny Depp as the Huntsman?

    People, people, stop bickering, fighting and/or gasping and salivating about this rumoured casting! This is just a PR release from Disney publicity department to generate initial interest in their upcoming project. First it was Angelina Jolie and Tom Hardy who they knew are currently extremely busy with other projects so it is evident they wouldn’t be able to to do this Snow White version. Now it’s Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron. Johnny is also busy with other projects so he may not able to do this. Another big name actor will be rumoured to take this role then. Think about the amount of publicity this project has already gotten before the movie even stars shooting.

    I saw Inception but I don” remember this Hardy guy. Maybe JD is playing Snow White lol he could you know. He will be great in any role he choses to play.

  • Hmmm

    I’ve always loved Johnny too but let’s face it – he’s getting old(er) and I don’t think he’d be a good fit for this role. Like someone else said, he’s kind of short (for a guy). I don’t know about being “delicate” or not – seems to me he’s chubbed up a bit recently. Just think he’s a little too old and weather-worn looking for this particular part. Looking forward to seeing him in ‘Dark Shadows’ though – think he’ll be excellent in that role.

    I think that everyone who is ‘hating’ on Johnny Depp should bloody open their eyes. Johnny Depp happens to be the most talented actor I have ever seen in this day and age – whatever role he chooses to do he does so brilliantly !!
    If Johnny Depp stars in this movie, I will DEFINITELY go see it =)

    @purple poet: Why on earth do you bring up Angelina Jolie?! Get your facts straight, both of them are Oscar winners who have been nominated many times, they are good actresses both have had box office hits and box office bombs. they live their lives the way they want to and THEY DONT CARE WHAT YOU THINK! Jesus people get a life its only a damn movie! And I agree with an earlier post leave the live action fairytales alone they don’t work. If you want too see a good Evil Queen google Siguorney Weaver she played her in a version of Snow White, Gill Bellows is also in the film, Now she was a Bad Asss Evil Queen!

  • luvd80s2

    If you want to know the movies name is Snow White a tale of Terror it was TV movie that came out in 1997 and like I said she was Bad Asssssss in that movie.

  • sarah

    enough johnny depp!!!!! I WANT TOM HARDY!!!!

  • Anna

    @sophie:

    you are full of crap. charlize has more talent and character than have of the people in hollywood. and you are so low for saying that someone cant have talent because they are simply blonde and pretty. charlize has been in the businesss for over a decade, if she was just blonde and pretty she would not continue to get work. hollywood loves her and her talent.

  • Rachel Sheehan

    Johnny is brilliant, and he’s very sensitive to the characters he plays. He really becomes the character. He is very deep,observant and creative. He will be amazing and magical as the huntsman. I love you so much Johnny!! XOXO

  • Mary

    Charlize is an overrated actress. Never did a really good acting until now, she only win an oscar because she turns into an ugly person, nothing else.
    She don’t deserve any award! she don’t know how to act.
