Considering the box office success of “Snow White and the Huntsman,” it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that a sequel to the film is being created.
Deadline has the news that Universal is moving forward with their planned follow-up to “Snow White,” with David Koepp writing the script and Rupert Sanders potentially returning to direct. And if reports are correct, this movie could see its title character getting a bit darker. When we saw her at the MTV Movie Awards, Kristen Stewart said she is not a fan of that journey for Snow White.
“It would be so weird to do that. It would break me, which probably would be interesting to watch,” she said, after which Chris Hemsworth joked “we’d have to rebuild you.” “That’s the third one. The rebuilding,” Stewart teased.
When MTV News caught up with director Rupert Sanders recently, he said that he has some ideas for a sequel to “Snow White and the Huntsman” that teased Snow White’s downfall in the near future.
“I think the corruption of power would be the second one. I think we’ve created this very chaste girl who’s got to this position and now she’s in this position of supreme power,” he said. “We wanted to be contemporary with the theme here and I think in the next film we’ll do the same. There’s so many examples of people corrupted by power. When we were talking about it, myself and [producer] Joe Roth, there were so many things happening in the newspapers of these very powerful men abusing that power in hotels and sports locker rooms. People who get powerful sometimes lose their bearings and abuse that power and that’s kind of an intoxicating theme.”
