We reported in January that Viggo Mortensen had signed onto play the Huntsman, a character who is originally hired to kill Snow White and then becomes her mentor and protector as they team up to defeat her evil stepmother. It seems Universal and Viggo Mortensen were so far apart that talks completely broke down, which lead to rumors he could play the villain in Superman. Negotiations did start up again, although it seems they have stalled once more.
We reported earlier this month that Kristen Stewart is confirmed to play Snow White. Rupert Sanders will make his directorial debut with Snow White and the Huntsman, although it isn't clear when production will start yet.
