'SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN' Sequel To Focus On The Huntsman

Snow White And The Huntsman won't be in theaters until June but it looks like Universal Pictures loves what they've seen. The trailers and TV spots have had a decent impact compared to the box office bomb Mirror Mirror. BleedingCool picked up on a small tidbit in a THR article that states if successful Universal will be looking at a sequel focusing on The Huntsman played by Chris Hemsworth. I assume this means that director Rupert Sanders will also be returning for more films.

It's not hard to understand why Universal would want to develop a franchise around the Aussie actor. Hemsworth has been front and center along with Charlize Theron in the promotions for the film. He's already a fixture with two franchises Thor and Avengers. Not to mention his horror thriller Cabin In The Woods hits theaters next week and has been praised by bloggers/reviewers. He also has the Red Dawn remake set for a release later in the year. As a bonus it looks like Kristen Stewart won't be in this sequel.
