Frank Darabont in talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2, Stewart not returning


Consider me a bit more interested in Snow White and the Huntsman And Their Sequel. First of all, this story allows me to revive one of my favorite headers, and secondly, everything but Kristen Stewart was good in the first film. Okay now to the news. Universal Pictures is currently in talks with Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Walking Dead) to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2. Nothing has been confirmed, but generally talks go well. 

Darabont’s pitch for the sequel features a bigger focus on the Huntsman, which is a good move since Stewart has been booted from the franchise for awhile now. There was rumblings that she wasn’t, but as of now, Stewart is not expected to return to the role in something other than a cameo capacity. So a Darabont directed sequel starring not Kristen Stewart and all about Chris Hemsworth’s character? Sign me up.
