Chris Hemsworth in Snow White and the Huntsman

Recently we found out that Frank Darabont was on the shortlist of potential directors for Snow White and the Huntsman 2, the follow-up to 2012’s re-imagining of the fairy tale that starred Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, and Charlize Theron, and was directed by Rupert Sanders.

The news that Darabont was a candidate seemed odd. Why would the director of The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, and the TV series creator of AMC’s The Walking Dead, be interested in making not only a sequel to a movie he wasn’t involved in, but a sequel to a movie that also received mediocre critical response (48% on Rotten Tomatoes, 6.2/10 on IMDB)?

But it appears that the interest is real and something about the project has appealed to Darabont, as it is now being reported that he’s officially in talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2.

According to Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr., Universal Pictures is scouting for potential directors to take on the sequel to the 2012 fantasy-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, and so far their shortlist of hoped-for helmers includes Gavin O’Connor (Warrior), Andy Muschietti (Mama), and most interestingly, Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption).

Darabont has been working mostly in television since the release of his last feature directorial effort, 2007’s Stephen King adaptation The Mist. He was the initial show-runner for AMC’s smashing success The Walking Dead until he and the network went through a nasty split during production on the series’ second season in 2011. Most recently he created the TNT crime series Mob City, which was cancelled after one low-rated season, and performed an uncredited rewrite on Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.

Snow White and the Huntsman

Kristen Stewart has been in the news for other reasons than promoting Snow White and the Huntsman and now her actions may be the reason Universal has decided not to bring the actress back for their planned sequel for Snow White and the Huntsman.

Universal now plans to take their ideas for a Snow White and The Huntsman sequel and turn it into a spin-off focusing on just the Huntsman, played by Chris Hemsworth, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The trade reports that Rupert Sanders will most likely come back to direct the new film, but that Stewart has been dropped. Also, the film won’t use the script that David Koepp wrote and that the writer is “being settled out of his rich contract.” All this means that Universal is back to square one with the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel.

Snow White and the Huntsman

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.
