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. Read my review of the film by clicking HERE and sound off with your thoughts on this news below.



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.




STARRING:

Kristen Stewart as Snow White
Chris Hemsworth as Eric, the Huntsman
Charlize Theron as Queen Ravenna
Sam Claflin as Prince William
Lily Cole as Greta

RELEASE DATE: Out Now.

Im new here.. does gusto always do that?

Makes sense I mean the ending was left open with the (SPOILER) Huntsman just walking away as she's made queen.

I never really doubted the film would be good anyway, I was surprised as hell when I saw who some of the dwarfs turned out to be but hey that's one of the cool things about not looking to much into the film.

Saw this movie with my niece and sister a few days ago, it was ok, weak story, Kristen Stewart is still the WORST GODDAMN choice for Snow White. She doesn't even change her face expression in the film, she has that dead look and is a TERRIBLE pick for Snow White.
Editing was pretty bad, only good thing about the movie is the special effects, Charlize Theron as the Queen, and the ripoff of Tolkien lol.

Also in the forest scene, total ripoff from Princess Mononoke's forest. Just saying.

ImTheCaptainOfThisShip - 6/7/2012, 7:19 PM

gastitdk - 6/7/2012, 7:24 PM
Really? a sequel for this? this shouldn't even come out as a movie.
gastitdk - 6/7/2012, 7:26 PM
Gusto, cut the crap man.
Ranger14 - 6/7/2012, 7:27 PM
Well that would guarantee Stewart will get hired for at least one more big film. :-P

On the wiki page one critic says its over crowded overlong and convoluted....kinda what i was thinking trying to be more than what it is
Hardshaw - 6/7/2012, 7:46 PM
It was weak,the dwarves where great so was the Troll it need more fantasy based characters and that wouldn't have turned it into middle earth.
ImTheCaptainOfThisShip - 6/7/2012, 7:50 PM
ahh quit it gusto
Tainted87 - 6/7/2012, 7:52 PM
Is the sequel going to be Fables?
ScarSpeedster - 6/7/2012, 8:52 PM
Boring movie and will not get my money again i can tell you that. On top of that i hate forced sequels, even if they planed to do one. you Can tell a good Snow white story in one movie, but no cash grab and force out garbage studios.

I didn't mind the first half. Thought it was dark and definitely a new direction with the whole story. But toward the end I just couldn't get the image of Kristen Stewart as Bella from Twilight out of my mind. Up until then I guess I had just blocked it out or something.

Reminded me of the girl who played Alice in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.

The actors have repeated several times that they are NOT contractually obliged to return for any sequels, although they'd love to, so maybe you should corrent your info ! :D

This is one of the most stupid ideas II've heard come out of Hollywood in a long time. Really. More stupid than a Spidey reboot only 5 years later and just as stupid as a Batman reboot being prepared before the third one is even out.
Snow White 2? Just because it made a bit of cash?
Shit, just do Gone With The Wind 2 and have done with it.
Gusto...?
I get it, you're being well behaved, right? All happiness and smiles and shit? Get in Galactus' good books? Or is itr something more sinister?

This movie sucked and a sequel doesn't make sense.
Bladezer0 - 6/8/2012, 10:28 AM
I got some of the best sleep while watching Snow white! The best!!
Rambaldi47 - 6/8/2012, 12:31 PM
I think most people went to see the movie because of Charlize, and I'm assuming she dies at the end of this one because that is the story of Snow White, but I haven't seen it, so I don't know. But I don't think a sequel would be that successful without Charlize as the Evil Queen. Kristen Stewart is a horrible actress. They could've picked a far better Snow White.
