Frank Darabont In Talks To Direct ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2’; Kristen Stewart Still Up In The Air
Frank Darabont is in talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2, which may not include the first movie’s star Kristen Stewart. According to multiple reports, Darabont is negotiating to helm the follow-up project, which is said to focus more on the Huntsman character portrayed by Chris Hemsworth.
In the years since the first Snow White, which was directed by Rupert Sanders, there have been conflicting rumors about the nature of the sequel’s plot and whether Stewart would reprise her role. Back in 2012, Stewart told The Hollywood Reporter — the same outlet that had prematurely claimed she’d been officially “dropped” from the sequel a few months earlier — that there was a “strong possibility” of her returning.
Nearly two years later, there is still no official word on her status. Gossip Cop has reached out to the studio and Stewart’s camp in the wake of the Darabont news. We will have updates.
