Work Moving Ahead On SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN Sequel
After a much higher debut at the box office than was originally expected, the rumoured sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman is said to be moving full steam ahead at Universal, with director Rupert Sanders in talks to return.
Deadline reveals that a Snow White and the Huntsman sequel has been fast tracked at Universal following the release of the first film last week. In April, it was revealed that David Koepp was hard at work on writing the script for a possible follow-up, but the studio are now in talks to bring back director Rupert Sanders and intent on making it a reality. While he is said to be "interested" in returning to helm the sequel, he has no contractual obligation to return (unlike the actors who all have options for two additional instalments in the franchise). Snow White and the Huntsman has so far made $118 million worldwide, although it will need to continue performing well over the next few weeks in order to make back the rumoured budget of $170 million.

In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
