With shockingly strong trailers and star power to boot, Snow White and the Huntsman has enough energy to be one of this summer’s biggest box office hits — and, having known since July that Universal wants the film to start another franchise cash cow, this latest move couldn’t be less of a surprise. As Deadline has learned, the studio is currently trying to wrangle David Koepp for their sequel to Huntsman, which is also being fast-tracked for Rupert Sanders to make a return.
It’s early, and although specifics on the story are outside our own realm of understanding, we may have already heard more about the film’s content than Universal would prefer. After all, it was just earlier this month when their President, Ron Meyer, announced intentions to craft a follow-up that would put focus on Chris Hemsworth‘s titular character; Kristen Stewart‘s Snow White was, interestingly enough, absent from these discussions. Will Koepp be working without a couple of characters, then? Well, in all honesty, I can’t see them letting one of the world’s biggest young actors slip from their grasp. Maybe she’ll just take a backseat; at least a fairly smart guy like Koepp is doing most of the heavy-lifting in that department.
Is this a good choice for the sequel? Has the first film been on your radar at all?

These […]
