Frank Darabont in talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2

06.26.2014

Frank Darabont has directed some great movies including THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION and THE GREEN MILE. He more recently helped produce The Walking Dead until he was fired. He doesn't just say yes to anything obviously; so why he would want to lend his name to the sequel for SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN is beyond me. He beat out previous frontrunners Gavin O'Connor (WARRIOR) and Andy Muschietti (MAMA) for the gig after the studio and producer Joe Roth were said to be happy with his take for the sequel.

Kristen Stewart is not expected to return but a cameo is not being ruled out the report threatens. The movie is expect to emphasize Chris Hemsworth‘s role as the titular Huntsman; thank THE AVENGERS for that push. The only reward from watching SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN was Charlize Theron’s great performance. The odd pacing and Stewarts out of place performance made this movie an endurance test that’s for sure. The movie managed to gross almost $400 million worldwide so the follow-up was inevitable.

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN 2 is slated for a 2016 release.

Well, this is certainly a waste of a good director and a fair amount of time for everyone involved.

"Left Field, di you see this coming?"

"Nope."

It's hard to justify a film called SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN 2 when there's no freakin' Snow White in the flick. They should recast Snow White and have done with it; Kristen Stewart is a good actress within her limitations, but that film showed those limitations.

I wonder if Mr. Darabont has a vision of a dramatic tale he wants to tell about the Huntsman. If Snow White isn't in it...it better get a new title.
I really like his work, but this seems an odd choice. But on the plus side, the odds are in favor of the sequel being better than the original now!

Darabont is far too talented for this. This is just a waste.

Recast Snow White, get Malcolm McDowell as a demented sorcerer and we're good.

Ummmmm

"The only reward from watching SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN was Charlize Theronís great performance. The odd pacing and Stewarts out of place performance made this movie an endurance test thatís for sure."

Ummmm if anything Charlize's performance was very oddball and Stewarts performance was better than expected and Hemsworth was an awesome treat to have. Perhaps there was some pacing issues etc, but HAAAAAAAAAARDLY an endurance test as you put it.

In regards to Darabont, im very pleased

In regards to Darabont, im very pleased with this development and the idea of focussing on the Huntsman is awesome!

Agreed. This was one of her only performances (of films I've seen her in) that I really liked. She brought an edginess to Snow White that worked with the rest of the film. It wasn't perfect but it was a fun fantasy film.

No

Shouldn't he be doing The Long Walk or... anything else. I'm as excited about this as I would be if you told me Scorsese was directing a new Bratz movie.

So it's just a Huntsman spin-off? Doesn't seem all that interesting. I think Hemsworth's time would be better spent else. The criminally underseen Rush showed that he can more than just Thor and can tackle mulitple genres.

The ragging on Kristen Stewart is getting old. She is a great actress in most every thing she is in. Most peoples opinions of her are swayed because of Twilight, which she was actually perfect in. That was exactly how that character is in the books. She is a better actress than most all of the women who call themselves one these days.

If he's directing, you already know the sequel is going to be better than The first.

I rely liked the first one, Charlize and the visuals were great. Stewart didn't show up for 20 minutes in and really didn't talk for another 10 mins...besides not being in the movie, what more could you ask for?!
