I’ll hold my hand up and say I found the original Snow White and the Huntsman a bit of a surprise and even have the DVD at home. While not a complete surprise Universal has been attempting to turn this into a new franchise given it made money at the cinema I had no idea how they would do it given the movie wrapped up neatly at the end.
There are stories circulating the Internet that Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, Green Mile) has entered talks to direct a sequel. It is reported he presented a compelling vision of where the “franchise” could go. The rumours are that the movie could be more of a spin off as opposed to a straight sequel, focusing on the Huntsman character. There is no guarantee that Kristin Stewart will return as Snow White.
