With two "Snow White" movies coming out that feature two increasingly appealing casts it's going to be really difficult to decide which is the fairest of them all.
Case in point: Hugh Jackman is being eyed for "Snow White and the Huntsman" (if you're keeping tabs, that's the one with Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, not the "Brothers Grimm" one starring Julia Roberts and Lily Collins.)
According to Deadline, Universal Pictures has made an offer to Jackman for the Huntsman in question. The part was once intended for Viggo Mortensen, but he has since dropped out. Plus, since Jackman looks like, as Liz Lemon would put it, "a damn Disney prince," this casting would be nothing short of inspired. But will the star actually sign on? As Deadline noted not only would the star get a hefty paycheck, but he's also pretty busy trying to find a replacement director for "The Wolverine."
After the jump check out the rest of today's most notable news from the movie world, including the MPAA pulling "The Hangover: Part II" trailer from theaters, "Tron Legacy 2" gets a green light, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" gets a director, "When Harry Met Sally" meets the undead for Funny Or Die, and Meg Ryan is set to make her directorial debut.
When you're walking around Bangkok wearing a wicker hat, a denim jacket and a monkey on your shoulder, chances are good that you have a hangover.
The latest photo from the upcoming flick "The Hangover Part II" has hit the internet courtesy of Cine Marcado (via /Film), and it shows our favorite wolf pack standing around a bit puzzled and distracted. But the still raises more questions than it answers, and in our book that means it’s high time for some analysis.

It was as though Justin Bartha read our minds.
The actor, along with his fellow "The Hangover: Part II" cast mates, sat down with Empire Magazine (via Indie Wire) to discuss the upcoming sequel, acknowledging those who are skeptical about a sequel to the hard R-rated comedy.
"Well your first instinct is to think ‘Sequel—sh---y version of the first film out to make money,'" Bartha said, adding: "As soon as that thought entered my head, I remembered: this is a movie written and directed by Todd Phillips with the cast and crew of ‘The Hangover.’"
In addition to talking about the sequel, the Empire article reveals two new images from the film. Check them out past the jump!
FROM MTV MOVIES: After the record-breaking success of "The Hangover" and the endless speculation about where the sequel would take place, after the casting gossip and the Mel Gibson controversy, after the first photos and the behind-the-scenes set visit, we're about to get our first peek at actual footage from "The Hangover Part II."
"We have a teaser trailer that I just finished color for yesterday night, so that'll come out next week," Todd Phillips told MTV News on Friday (February 18) while promoting the DVD release of "Due Date." "And I think it comes out in theaters on 'Hall Pass,' which should be next Friday."

If you were worried that taking "The Hangover" gang out of Las Vegas for the sequel was going to change their dynamic too much, don't. The guys, who director Todd Phillips has moved to Bangkok, are still getting into heaps of trouble (though this time with less "scripted tigers" and missing teeth), and running into some familiar faces, including Mike Tyson and Ken Jeong.
Entertainment Tonight visited the set of "The Hangover 2" to see what Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha were up to abroad. Besides some seriously enviable cinematography (Cooper tells ET, "Bangkok sort of tops Vegas" and Galifianakis, wearing a jaunty hat, boasts, "This is the most un-boring place") there's a few behind-the-scenes snippets worth checking out as well.
Liam Neeson's long and distinguished career has afforded him the opportunity to play Jedi knights, Irish gang leaders, retired espionage agents and much more. But for his latest turn, it's about to get very strange: he'll inhabit the role of an Irish tattoo artist living in Thailand for a cameo appearance in "The Hangover 2."
"Oh, it was [fun]," Neeson told MTV News when asked about the cameo during the press junket for "Unknown," his latest thriller featuring shades of "Taken."
Even though Ed Helms threw us for a loop when he informed us former president Bill Clinton won't be making a cameo appearance in "The Hangover 2," we did get at least one thing right: Paul Giamatti will.
The actor was in Park City, Utah to promote his film "Win Win" at Sundance, but when he talked to MTV News he let us know that his cameo in "The Hangover 2" was already in the can.
He filmed his scene in Bangkok a month or so ago, and seemed like he had a very fun time doing it. Fortunately he was also willing to shed some light on his previously unannounced role, especially when prodded by his "Win Win" co-star, Bobby Cannevale. His question: is Giamatti playing Mel Gibson's role, or Mel Gibson himself?
"I do, I play Mel Gibson," Giamatti teased, but then quickly retracted it. "No, I think Liam Neeson plays that."
Of all the cameos (that we know about) in "The Hangover 2," we at MTV were definitely most excited about former president Bill Clinton popping on to the Thailand set. So when we had a chance to catch up with star Ed Helms at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival (where he was promoting his new comedy "Cedar Rapids" with co-star Anne Hecht), we had to ask him how it was working with Clinton on the set.
"Check your sources," Helms chided us. "He came and visit us. I'd be surprised if there's a scene in the movie." Read More...
Did you have a relaxing time over the long holiday weekend? Good, because the boys of "The Hangover Part II" sure as hell didn't. Two photos from the upcoming comedy film hit the Web -- the first (above) courtesy of director Todd Phillips' Facebook page and the second (below) thanks to Cinemablend -- and judging from what we're seeing here, the guys aren't having the most subdued Thai vacation of all time.
The first film was a total balls-to-the-wall comedy, during which plenty of ridiculous questions were raised with even more ridiculous answers. What happened last night? Why is Doug missing? Where did Stu's tooth go? Where did that baby come from? Why is there a tiger? Do we really want to know these answers?
Well, it looks like "Part II" is going to follow up on that winning formula. These new photos certainly raise some questions of their own, and we'll dissect them after the jump. Read More...
