Frank Darabont, Gavin O'Connor, Andy Muschietti Shortlisted for 'Snow White and Huntsman 2'
Three directors are linked to the upcoming "Snow White and the Huntsman" sequel. According to Deadline, Frank Darabont ("The Mist", "The Walking Dead"), Gavin O'Connor ("Warrior", "Jane Got a Gun"), and Andy Muschietti ("Mama") are in contention to tackle the second film.
Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth are expected to return as Snow White and the Huntsman respectively. Rupert Sanders directed the first film, but won't reprise his role in "Snow White and the Huntsman 2" after he and the lead actress were caught on camera cozying up to each other . The scandal led to his divorce with Liberty Ross, the mother of his two children.
The first movie based on Brothers Grimm's famous tale "Snow White" was released in 2012. The $170M-budgeted feature film was supported by the likes of Charlize Theron and Sam Claflin. It also starred Ross as Snow White's mother. Marking Sanders' directorial debut, it raked in nearly $400 million despite mixed reviews.
