Universal May Move Forward With ‘Snow White and The Huntsman 2’
  |  @   |  

Rupert Sander‘s Snow White and the Huntsman may have claimed the number one spot at the box office last weekend, but the film has some stiff competition from Madagascar 3 and Prometheus this weekend. But its success at the box office has sparked new life into the proposed sequel.

Universal Pictures nearly scrapped plans to make a sequel after initial tracking reported the film to be trailing behind Men In Black 3. Luckily it made one huge splash at the box office and plans for a sequel were revived. Now, the studio has hired David Koepp to write a sequel for Snow White and the Huntsman. Deadline reports that Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart are optioned for two more sequels, but Sanders isn’t signed on to direct it.

Now things aren’t finalized yet, in fact there are reports that Snow White and the Huntsman is on track to fall 55% from last week. With those kind of numbers, it’s not surprising to see Universal being hesitant to sign off on a sequel.

It seems difficult to tell another story of Snow White and the Huntsman, especially since there isn’t much of a story to tell to begin with. It was just a visually stunning film that gave a darker and grittier spin to the classic fairy tale story. But I am sure that there is an audience who is asking for a sequel to happen, and if Snow White and the Huntsman can continue to make decent numbers over the course of the next few weeks, then we could hear of a confirmation of a sequel.
