Director Short List For SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN Sequel

Director Short List For SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN Sequel

According to Deadline, three directors are in contention to helm the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel. They are: Frank Darabont ("Shawshank Redemption"), Gavin O'Connor ("Warrior") and Andy Muschietti ("Mama"). Who do you like out of the three?

Deadline is reporting, Univesal Pictures has three directors already in mind to helm their Snow White and the Huntsman sequel. Those three directors in contention are: Frank Darabont, Gavin O’Connor and Andy Muschietti. Frank Darabont is probably the biggest surprise on this list as he is known to be very picky about which films he works on. He is the former showrunner of AMC's The Walking Dead, until he was booted cause he wanted the number 1 show on cable television to have a higher budget. What a jerk! He is also the director of arguably the best film of all time, Shawshank Redemption. Gavin O'Connor is also talented as he directed Warrior, a thrilling mixed-martial arts film with Tom Hardy. Lastly, there is Andy Muschietti who directed the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror film, Mama.

The first film was directed by Rupert Sanders and starred Kristen Stewart ("Twilight"), but Stewart is not expected to return for the sequel. Producers are planning to have a film that focuses on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman character. Neato! Producers are also gunning for a 2015 release date, but that might be wishful thinking.

SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN was directed by Rupert Sanders, from a script written by Evan Daugherty. The cast includes: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ray Winstone, and Nick Frost.

I'm sure they confirmed that Sanders would return for the sequel?
Guess things change!

I don't think this is a movie that really needs a sequel or even set up one. Doing one will just feel so forced.
But hey, money speaks I guess.

IF Darabont or O'Connor get this I would actually be interested no matter how forced it is. I means its [frick]ing Frank Darabont!

There's a sequel?? At least Stewart is out of the picture, which is great news for any film.

was it me, or did anyone else see Maleficent bite SWATH?

Ramiel - 6/4/2014, 1:42 PM
If this movie is going to focus more on the Huntsman, then why not just call this Thor 3?
sKeemAn - 6/4/2014, 1:52 PM
Why the hell does Kristen Stewart have the same face for everything. She can't even have an action face for an action scene. Everyone else has got the grunt look and this bitch looks like 'oh i'm just here'.

The first movie was awful, so I can only imagine how awful the second one will be.

Actually, you should do your homework a little bit better :P Kristen was not expected to return back in 2012, until the scriptwriter refused to keep working on a script for a snow white film without snow white. Since then,and after the box office for 'Breaking Dawn part 2', the Universal executives have actually signed her already for a second one, and she has talked about the sequel for a while since then in interviews...
Ranger14 - 6/4/2014, 2:17 PM
^^ Uggh...way to really ruin it for everyone! It was bad enough news that there is going to be a sequel without Stewart's involvement :-p
MrFridayNights - 6/4/2014, 2:24 PM
Nobody wants a sequel for that piece of shit!!!!!!!
Kyos - 6/4/2014, 2:24 PM
The first one is among the very few movies I never managed to finish. (-_-)'
rora - 6/4/2014, 2:47 PM
Lol @sKeemAn so true. This girl has one expression.
CaptainAmerica31 - 6/4/2014, 2:51 PM
I won't watch this but Darabont? He is pretty amazing, I'll be surprised if he gets it
NICKHART - 6/4/2014, 3:00 PM
highly doubt darabont or o'connor would actually direct this film.. but that would be awesome if one of them did
marvel72 - 6/4/2014, 3:27 PM
pretty decent choices but i doubt any of them will accept this movie.
CrimsonFlash - 6/4/2014, 3:28 PM
First one was shit any time Kristen was on screen. She is genuinely bad at acting. Also the writing was pretty bad. Also it stole from a few sources...yeah it was actually just a bad movie haha
cronnyberg - 6/4/2014, 5:07 PM
There is a sequel!!! Did the first one make any money? My gf and I were laughing at how bad it was by the end! Sometimes I just have no faith in people :(

I curious to see where it goes didn't care for snow white in armor but the world of the story is worth a revisit.
Baconman21 - 6/4/2014, 7:25 PM
Yea this movie really doesn't need a sequel. The first one was dumb
OcciferPing - 6/4/2014, 7:51 PM
Cool. More directors for Kristen Stewart to sleep with.
MightyZeus - 6/4/2014, 8:02 PM
What's the point of doing a sequel when the first film was terrible.
TheAbomination - 6/4/2014, 8:08 PM
Why are they making a sequel? The first one was shit.
Patrick2274 - 6/4/2014, 11:47 PM

"Why are they making a sequel? The first one was shit."

If there isn't snowwhite in a snowwhite film then it isn't a sequel, it is a spinoff.
I'm actually divided in this one. It was an awful movie, like watching a medival cheap soap opera, really hard to stay siting in the theater but still I want to know what happened to her.
pepe - 6/5/2014, 4:08 AM
Were's Rupert going to put his Weiner now?
case - 6/5/2014, 5:42 AM
I didn't watch he first. I assumed it wasn't worth a sequel.

Warrior [frick]en rocked.
