What a shame.
Viggo Mortensen has dropped out of negotiations to play the male lead in the upcoming film, Snow White and the Huntsman.
Viggo's been rumored to play the role of the Huntsman, however sources sources say he backed out after the studio couldn't afford to meet his $8 million salary demands.
He's also been rumored to be one of the frontrunners to play the villain in the upcoming film, Superman: The Man of Steel, which means dropping out of Snow White would give him the chance to do Zack Snyder's reboot.
Viggo was perfect for the Huntsman role so we're sad to see him go, but maybe this will be a bonus for us if he's ready and willing to do Superman.
