Jessica Chastain has been cast as Chris Hemsworth's love interest in the prequel to Snow White and the Huntsman.

The events in The Huntsman take place before those seen in Snow White and the Huntsman, so Kristen Stewart will not reprise her role.

Charlize Theron will return as Queen Ravenna and Emily Blunt has signed on to play a brand new villain.

The Huntsman is due for release on April 22, 2016.
