Kristen Stewart’s Snow White Movie Now a Trilogy

Just when Twi-haters thought they had seen the last of Kristen Stewart-led franchises comes word that Snow White and the Huntsman will be stretched into a trilogy. The film co-stars Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Charlize Theron as The Evil Queen.

Producer Joe Roth told Entertainment Weekly that at the end of the first installment of the folk tale action-adventure trilogy, “there will be questions remaining for these three characters.”
 
Roth says he’s hoping audiences will be drawn in by a Lord of the Rings-style take on the classic tale. He explained that the movie will retain the basic story of a young girl meant to be the queen who is cast out.
 
“She starts out as a damsel in distress, but innocent, and after 11 years of imprisonment by the Evil Queen, she escapes and learns the ways of a warrior in the woods,” Roth said.
 
Hemsworth’s Huntsman is a mercenary whose job it is to capture runaway girls who are fleeing from the kingdom because of the Evil Queen. Roth stresses that he’s not a killer, but rather a nondescript bounty hunter.
 
“He’s not a nice guy, but not only that, he’s someone who has lost hope and lost faith. He has lost his wife, given up on everything,” Roth said.
 
The movie will be directed by first-time feature director Rupert Sanders, known for his harrowing live-action ads for videogames like Halo 3 and Call of Duty, the latter featuring a bazooka-toting Jimmy Kimmel and gun-blasting Kobe Bryant.
 
Roth also addressed the casting of Stewart in the role of Snow White. “Frankly, what we did, we searched high and low for an unknown. As we went through it, it just became evident to me that Kristen occupies a space in the universe where she’s a terrific actress only known for one part. I hope this is a movie that will appeal to those who find Twilight appealing, but also [Stewart] is someone who has some piss and vinegar in her.”
