Nick Frost, Sheridan Smith, Rob Brydon join the cast of Snow White and the Huntsman prequel

Nick Frost, Sheridan Smith and comedian Rob Brydon have joined the cast of the prequel to 2012 fantasy blockbuster Snow White And The Huntsman. 

Frost will reprise his role as the dwarf Nion, with Smith, Brydon and actress Alexandra Roach also signing up to play dwarves in the new movie.

The likes of Ian McShane, Ray Winstone, Johnny Harris, Eddie Marsan and Brian Gleeson also starred as dwarves in the 2012 movie, but there's currently no word on if they will return for the prequel. 

The film, which is simply known as The Huntsman, will see Jessica Chastain play opposite Thor star Chris Hemsworth, who reprises his role as The Huntsman, with Charlize Theron also back as Queen Ravenna. Emily Blunt has been cast as the movie's villain. 

The original starred Kristen Stewart, Hemsworth and Theron and was directed by Rupert Sanders. Both Stewart and Sanders are not returning for the sequel, with Cedric Nicolas-Troyan now in the director's chair. 

Nicolas-Troyan has never directed a feature film before, but has acted as visual effects supervisor and second unit director on a number of huge films, including Snow White And The Huntsman. He is also attached to direct the new reboot of 1980s cult fantasy film Highlander. 

Nicolas-Troyan joined the project after The Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont walked away due to creative differences.

The follow-up to Snow White and The Huntsman, which raked in almost $400 million at the box office back in 2012, is due to be released into cinemas on April 22nd in 2016.
