Quick! Raise your hand if you're dying for a sequel to "Snow White And The Huntsman." C'mon don't be shy....wait....nobody wants this? That's what we thought. But hey, those international markets are more valuable than ever, and Universal did decently enough with the Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron starring movie (just under $400 million worldwide) that they might as well milk what they can out of this thing. Plans for this have been brewing for a while now, and while that once mooted 2015 date probably isn't likely, potential directors are being rounded up.

Deadline reports that Frank Darabont, Gavin O’Connor and Andy Muschietti are among those on the shortlist for the job. The latter recently bounced from "The Mummy" remake at the studio over creative differences, so perhaps this would perhaps be a good way to patch things up. As for Darabont and O'Connor—both seasoned veterans with respectable movies and gigs behind them—this seems a bit beneath their paygrade, though in a climate where smart dramas aren't being funded that often (or at all), this could help pay some bills.

Universal is now eyeing a 2016 release, with filming to begin once Chris Hemsworth is done his duty with "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron." Could this be that mystery "event movie" Universal has already slotted for fall 2016? Perhaps.....

    How many times can you use the word PERHAPS whilst attempting to sound clever, you smug piece of shit?

    Get a real job, cunt.

    Perfect example of a foul-mouthed Kristen Stewart fan. I guess they take after their idol. SMH at why anyone hires her for anything. She's repulsive.

    To be fair, the jokes are beyond stale. But it's to know the people making them are apparently flawlesss and faultless in their own lives

    Pressed Copy/Paste Troll is pressed and obsessed.

    To be fair, conducting an affair with a married man on a public road is beyond stale. She turned herself into one of the oldest cliches in the book, an actress who sleeps with her director.

    You don't have to be flawless to make a joke about that, in fact, it comes with the territory. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. She didn't go to prison, so she gets made fun of. She asked for it when she chose to cheat.

    I for one am excited for this movie so kevin shush

    Whoever it is, and if it's Darabont it might be halfway decent, hopefully she doesn't end up sleeping with them or this could become an ongoing joke.

    @Diana, I don't read tabloids. I saw the 50 pics of Kristen Stewart hooking up with Rupert Sanders on a public road online, and I read her public apology online. I read Liberty Ross' interview about the affair in Vanity Fair, not a tabloid.

    The whole thing was conducted in public, no one needs a tabloid to tell them what to think, we all have brains of our own. Stewart admitted it, why are you confused?

    I think it's kind of a shame that she's being asked back, but the man with the whole concept and fantastic art direction, Rupert Sanders, isn't? Why is he being punished and she's getting off scott free?

    Y'all need to get a sense of humor. Making a joke isn't "hate." Must you drama queens over react to everything? Kristen got caught hooking up with her SWATH director. Which is probably why it's taken Universal so long to go ahead with a sequel.

    What she did was bad for business and will always pop up when anyone talks about SWATH. So you should just get used to it instead of squealing like a stuck pig every time someone mentions it. Learn to laugh, you'll live longer.

  • jofaimn | June 4, 2014 5:52 PM

    Just a simple joke. Not hating on her. I would make the same joke about Aaron Taylor Johnson and working with older female directors.

    But to be fair, she did admit to doing it so it wasn't completely gossip.

  • Jennifer | June 4, 2014 5:33 PM

    Life is too short to waste time on hating people who have no impact on your life. Grow up and move on...

  • diana | June 4, 2014 5:09 PM

    Please stop the hating and putting down someone you know nothing about. All you know is what you have read in the tabloids which shows how easily swayed you are by gossips.
    I am hopeful that this sequel will be done at least 2x better than the first one. To start, I have confidence in the script by David Koeppe. Looking forward to this sequel as I am sure are millions of fans. And Kevin Jaggernaut, I see their hands raised up saying Yes! Yes! Yes!

    2016 movie season is sounding even better then 2015 movie season

  • Noah | June 4, 2014 4:35 PMReply

    What a waste of time and energy. The first was awful, I can't believe Hemsworth would be interested in revisiting this.

  • BB | June 4, 2014 11:06 PM

    Noah and David, you are both likely wrong. Universal locked both Stewart and Hemsworth into a contract for at least one sequel. They both probably have absolutely no choice. If Universal wants to move forward, they have to do it because of their contractual obligations.

    (For the record, I am looking forward to the sequel, especially with a new writer and director)

  • david | June 4, 2014 4:56 PM

    Actually, Chris He worth turned down an offer to star in Brilliance to make this movie. So yeah, must be a really an excellent sequel since David Koeppe is writing the script. Now we just need an experienced helmet with strong credentials especially in the fantasy genre. Really looking forward to this with Kristen and Chris.
