Snow White & The Huntsman gets some Dwarves

Snow White and the Huntsman': Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones Cast as Dwarfs. They join Ian McShane in Universal's retelling of the fairy tale, starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth

There are no small parts in Hollywood. But these days there are plenty of dwarf roles to go around.
Universal is ramping up its casting of the dwarfs in its high-profileSnow White and the Huntsman action adventure movie, withEddie IzzardBob Hoskins and Toby Jones in negotiations to board the movie.
Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes) and Steven Graham are in negotiations to play warriors in the film.
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.
Evan Daugherty wrote the initial script and Evan Spiliotopoulos is currently working on it.
As Heat Vision first reported Monday, Ian McShane was cast first as the dwarf leader. 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.
