‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ could get a sequel without Snow White
Universal’s upcoming take on Snow White might get a sequel focusing only on the Huntsman’s character.
Though ‘Mirror Mirror’ failed to capture audience’s interests with a pretty straightforward re-telling of Snow White, it’s the upcoming ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ which looks like a fresh and much exciting take on the story which actually could be a lot of fun. And Universal is already planning on a sequel if it does well. However, there won’t be a Snow White in it.
The Hollywood Reporter reports from a conversation with Universal COO Ron Meyer and this is the important tidbit that talks about a potential sequel:
While the [film] doesn’t appear to lend itself to a sequel, Universal thinks it can do more movies based on the character of the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) if it is successful.
So the story will only focus on the Huntsman? Is that because of the rising popularity of Chris Hemsworth thanks to ‘Thor’ and ‘The Avengers’? He looks like the most striking character of the film anyway, so I can see why he has the most sequel potential. But I’m guessing it won’t really be a Snow White movie then. But that’s not a bad thing at all.
