SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNSTMAN 2: Frank Darabont in, Kristen Stewart Out

Charlize Theron Snow White and the Huntsman

Frank Darabont Directing, Kristen Stewart Not Returning for Snow White and the Huntsman Sequel. Frank Darabont is directing Snow White and the Huntsman 2 (2016) but Kristen Stewart will not be returning for the sequel movie. As Kristen Stewart was the central character of the first film (possibly only second to Charlize Theron) it will be interesting how she is written out, especially considering the ending to the original film. Two actors that will be returning from the original movie are Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. This must have been a tough decision for Stewart – walking away from a new franchise – but with what happened because of the first film it was probably something she did not want to revisit.

On Frank Darabont:

Frank Darabont (born Darabont Ferenc; January 28, 1959) is a Hungarian-American film director, screenwriter and producer who has been nominated for three Academy Awards and a Golden Globe Award. In his early career he was primarily a screenwriter for horror films such as A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, The Blob and The Fly II. As a director he is known for his film adaptations of Stephen King novels such as The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Mist.

Rupert SandersSnow White and the Huntsman starred the aforementioned actors but also included Ian McShane, Nick Frost, Toby JonesSam ClaflinLily ColeBob HoskinsDave LegenoVincent ReganEddie MarsanNoah Huntley, and Sam Reid.

Snow White and the Huntsman‘ plot synopsis: “Snow White…, an 18-year-old princess whose only friends are animals, is getting more beautiful by the day as her step-mother, the Evil Queen Ravenna (…Charlize Theron) gets more and more jealous. When Ravenna tries to kill Snow White, Snow White escapes with the help of a hunstman named Eric (…Chris Hemsworth) who is trying to get revenge on the Queen.

Eric is very gruff but teaches Snow White how to fend for herself against the evil creatures of the forest. When she eats a poisonous apple, her childhood sweetheart Prince Charmant must kiss her in order to unfreeze her lips and give her the potion to heal her. She thinks she’s in love with Eric, but he assures her that Prince Charmant is her one true love.”
