Looks like Snow White is still the fairest of them all. After months of speculation about a possible Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson confirmed that the studio is indeed planning a second installment of the movie, which starred Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth in the title roles.
Fogelson announced the news at a CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas, Nev., on Tuesday, April 16. The film is apparently in development for a targeted 2015 release date.
Last summer, Stewart’s future with the franchise seemed uncertain after she and director Rupert Sanders were caught cheating on their respective significant others. She was in a relationship with her Twilight costar Robert Pattinson at the time; he was married to model Liberty Ross, who played Snow White’s mother in the movie. (Ross has since filed for divorce.)
In December, however, the actress suggested to Indiewire that she was “absolutely” on board for a sequel but under strict instructions not to talk about it. “It’s gonna be f–kin’ amazing. I’m so excited about it, it’s crazy,” she gushed. “The other day I said that there was a strong possibility that we’re going to make a sequel, and that’s very true, but everyone was like, ‘Whoa, stop talking about it.’ So, no, I’m totally not allowed to talk about it.”
There’s no word yet on the plot of the second film, or who from the original will be returning. Sanders is reportedly not directing, but the cast members’ fates are still up in the air.
