Frost completes the dwarf line-up

Nick Frost is joining the dwarf parade.

The Paul star is the seventh and final dwarf to be cast in Rupert Sanders' Snow White And The Huntsman, said Variety.

He joins the unlikely band in the big-screen adaptation of the classic fairytale, which already includes Ian McShane, Toby Jones, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Graham and Ray Winstone.

It appears Nick's casting takes the place of Eddie Izzard, who had previously been linked to one of the roles.

Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are already on board as Snow White, the huntsman and the evil stepmother respectively, while Sam Claflin will be portraying Prince Charming.

Lily Cole is said to be playing a character called Greta, and British actor Sam Spruell is tipped to be Finn, one of the evil Queen's henchmen.

Filming is expected to start in the autumn, with a release scheduled for 2012.

Producer Joe Roth has revealed that Snow White And The Huntsman is set to be a trilogy.

"It's meant to be the first in a series of films. This story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters," he told Entertainment Weekly.
