Charlize Theron as Evil Queen in 'Snow White and the Huntsman'

From Charlize Theron as Evil Queen in 'Snow White' by Kristine Gasbarre:

Academy Award winner Charlize Theron isn't afraid to take risks in her career, and she's just passed up a Martin Scorsese drama to play an evil queen. Here are details on Charlize's new role.

Word's been orbiting since December that Charlize Theron was in talks to star in the timeless fairytale "Snow White," and Tuesday the buzz was confirmed: she's signed on to play the Evil Queen in "Snow White and the Huntsman." Early rumors suggested Charlize, 35, was actually considering the role of Snow White herself, but apparently execs want a more unknown actress to take that part (Elvis Presley's granddaughter, Riley Keough, is currently rumored for it). With her "Monster" experience, her maturity and her ability to portray both beauty and threat, casting directors through Charlize would be more fitting as the Evil Queen.

It's a critical role in the story, as this version -- which was fast-tracked by Universal in October and is currently scheduled to hit theaters in Dec. 2012 -- tells how Snow White teams with the man who tried to murder her so she can fight the Evil Queen.
Well, this one gets closer and closer to becoming a reality, too...
