The Huntsman gets a new director

January 21st, 2015 by Marc Comments


Everyone can relax, a director has been found to replace Frank Darabont on Snow White and the Huntsman 2 staring Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron.

The movie, currently rumoured to be called The Huntsman, will be directed by VFX specialist Cedric Nicolas-Troyan who worked on the first movie and some of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

It’s apparently his familiarity with the first movie that earned him the gig as it made him appealing to Universal. While Darabont has left the director’s chair, he wrote the current draft of the screenplay based on earlier drafts by Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos.

The Huntsman returns on April 22, 2016.

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….
