Internet reports that Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman production was halted because of the London riots are false, a Universal spokesperson tells The Hollywood Reporter.
The production is currently filming outside of London at the Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. The lot is 20 miles out London’s SoHo neighborhood and eight miles from Heathrow airport.
The false reports appear to have stemmed from a tweet, which read: „A friend of mine is stuck in London w/ #KristenStewart’s team. They JUST stopped #SnowWhite prep work until riots die down #prayforlondon“.
Liberty Ross and Noah Huntley were recently added to the film’s cast, as the parents of Kristen Stewart’s Snow White. Chris Hemsworth (The Huntsman), Charlize Theron (The Evil Queen) and Sam Claflin (Prince Charmant) round out director Rupert Sanders’ cast.
The film is scheduled for a June 1, 2012 release.
