So, remember all that talk about a "Snow White And The Huntsman" sequel? Well, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself, because it looks like the gameplan is changing. Yes, Universal still wants to make a followup, but they're changing course a bit while hiring a pretty top-tier name to be the guiding light.

Snow White And The Huntsman, Kristen Stewart

Update: THR reports that the spinoff is now titled "The Huntsman" and Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron will return....but not Kristen Stewart.

So, remember all that talk about a "Snow White And The Huntsman" sequel? Well, you better check yourself before you wreck yourself, because it looks like the gameplan is changing. Yes, Universal still wants to make a followup, but they're changing course a bit while hiring a pretty top-tier name to be the guiding light.

Deadline reports that Frank Darabontpreviously shortlisted with Gavin O’Connor and Andy Muschietti — is now in talks to direct a "Snow White And The Huntsman" spinoff. That's right, the plan right now is apparently to focus on Chris Hemsworth's character, while Kristen Stewart remains in doubt to return. If this all sounds familiar, well, it is, because way back in 2012 the rumor was that Stewart was being dropped, though those reports were denied not long after. No reason is being given for Stewart's possible departure — maybe she lost interest, or perhaps Universal wants to focus all their energy on the guy who plays Thor.

It should be noted that Darabont only seems to be directing at this point and not writing, and it's not clear who is penning the script just yet. But we reckon we'll find out in short order.
