Rumors about Emily joining ‘The Huntsman’ spinoff have been circulating for weeks now. As we reported back in January Emily was eying the villain role but various media outlets are now reporting Emily’s deal finally closed. Jessica Chastain also joined the cast.
Jessica Chastain has closed a deal to join Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron in Universal’s “The Huntsman.”
Emily Blunt is also set to join the cast. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is directing the pic, with Joe Roth producing and Palak Patel exec producing.
Plot details are vague beyond that the film reveals how the fates of two characters, the Huntsman Eric (Hemsworth) and Ravenna, intersected before they met Snow White. Details on Chastain’s character are also vague.
Frank Darabont, who was previously attached to direct before falling off, wrote the current draft of the screenplay, with earlier drafts by Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos.
The pic is set to bow on April 22, 2016. Universal’s vice president of production Maradith Frenkel and creative executive Chloe Yellin will oversee the project for the studio.
Lionsgate has set drug trafficking drama “Sicario,” starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin and Jon Bernthal, for a Sept. 18 limited release followed by a wide release on Sept. 25.
“Prisoners” helmer Denis Villeneuve directed from a script by Taylor Sheridan.
Producers are Basil Iwanyk, Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill, Thad Luckinbill and Edward McDonnell. Production companies are Black Label Media and Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures.
The story, set in the lawless border area between the U.S. and Mexico, centers on an idealistic FBI agent (portrayed by Blunt) being exposed to the brutal world of international drug trafficking by members of a government task force — played by Brolin and Del Toro — who have enlisted her in their plan to take out a Mexican cartel boss.
“Sicario” is the fourth wide release title set for Sept. 25 after Sony’s “Hotel Transylvania 2,” Relativity’s horror thriller “The Disappointments Room” and Warner Bros. comedy “The Intern.”
