Sam Claflin has landed the role of the Prince opposite Twilight star Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman, one of two Snow White films scheduled to go into production this year.
Kristen will play Snow White while Charlize Theron has been cast as the evil Queen.
Rupert Sanders is set to direct with Thor's Chris Hemsworth as the front-runner to land the role of the huntsman.
The plot revolves around the traditional tale of the queen becoming jealous of Snow White's beauty and sending the huntsman to kill her.
But in a novel twist the hunter decides to train Snow White to survive and fight back.
Claflin, who got his big break starring in TV dramas Pillars of the Earth, Any Human Heart and United, has only recently made the leap to the big screen.
He will soon be seen in cinemas in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and also has the title role in The Seventh Son alongside Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges lined up.
Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to shoot in London, Scotland and Germany in August 2011.
