Snow White and the Huntsman seems to be getting a sequel. Universal hired David Koepp to write a script for the sequel in April, and now Deadline reports that the studio is now in talks with director Rupert Sanders to return for the second film. He reportedly had a great time making the first movie and is interested in going behind the camera again. Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth have options for two sequels in their contract already.
The film has outperformed expectations with a solid $56 million opening weekend and has done $118 million worldwide. The film had a price tag of $170 million, so it has to keep chugging along at the box office for the next couple of weeks. Since Universal does not have to rush out a movie because of Mirror, Mirror, a better sequel is highly possible.
I saw Snow White in theaters during opening weekend, and highly enjoyed the visual effects, the fight scenes, and loved the seven dwarfs. I would see a sequel if looks as good as this film did. Sanders' involvement is a no brainer, so I hope that Universal makes it happen. Having Thor in the film can not hurt either.
