  • How can America's Drunk Aunt play an Evil Queen? She's so zany! On the other hand, that laugh IS mighty frightening...

  • Brian says:

    Kristen Stewart as Snow White? I guess as a twitchy, angsty, sexually frustrated Snow White. On the other hand, one name directors tend to produce steaming piles of crap, so my guess is that both versions will suck, assuming that either is actually made.

  • Josy says:

    The only thing that is twitching around here is my palm that is really wants to bitch slap Brian across the face.
    I understand that people absolutely dislike Twilight, I find the hyped movie which contains HORRIFIC DIALOGUE an abomination and YET I DO NOT TAKE OUT MY FRUSTRATIONS ON MS.STEWART.
    She is fantastic! I have seen Kristen's Indies, the girl CAN ACT VERY WELL! I HOPE her Snow White prevails.
