Snow White And The Huntsman producer Joe Roth has revealed that the Kristen Stewart-starring fairytale revamp is being set up as a trilogy.
“It’s meant to be the first in a series of films,” he says. “This story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters.”
In Huntsman , Stewart plays the role of Snow White, who’s cast out by Charlize Theron’s evil queen. Luckily for our heroine, though, she’s taken in by the hunky Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth).
“We retain the basic story in the same way we retain the basic story of Alice, a young girl meant to be the queen who is cast out,” Roth says.
“The Huntsman is a mercenary, in the sense that he’s a guy who is very able in the woods, more able than most anyone. His job is to capture runaway girls, who are all fleeing the kingdom because of the queen.
“He’s a nondescript bounty hunter, as we first meet him… 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.”
On White herself, Roth adds: “She starts out not 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.”
For Twilight star Stewart, it looks like she’s just hopped from one beefy, teen-girl-baiting, megabuck franchise to another…
