Frank Darabont set for Snow White and the Huntsman sequel?

June 27th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Ok, I think I’m the only person on the planet who liked Snow White and the Huntman. So I’m interested to see where this goes…

The Wrap is reporting that The Walking Dead TV creator and director of The Shawshank Redemption, Frank Darabont, is set to direct the sequel to the re-imagined fairytale starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Helmsworth at Universal.

The story is that he beat the competition of  Gavin O’Connor, director  of Warrior and Andy Muschietti, director of Mama.

However, changing things significantly, “Kristen Stewart is not expected to return… which is expected to emphasize Chris Hemsworth‘s role as the titular Huntsman. Thanks to The Avengers, Hemsworth is a much bigger star since the first film was released in June 2012. Since no script has been finalized, if Stewart does return, her appearance would likely be limited to a cameo or a handful of brief scenes.”

So a title change will be on the cards we imagine. Interestingly, Charlize Theron is expected to reprise her role as the evil queen.

Interesting, huh? No? Ok then…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
