Snow White sequel confirmed
Los Angeles - A Snow White and the Huntsman
sequel has been confirmed.
The fantasy adventure movie - starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth as the titular characters - took more than $55m at the US box office over its opening weekend, leading to Warner Bros greenlighting a follow-up.
David Koepp has been commissioned to write the new script, which will pick up after the events of the first movie.
Kristen and Chris will return as they are both optioned for two more movies although it is unclear if there will be a role for Charlize Theron's evil queen Ravenna.
There is also no word on whether director Rupert Sanders - who made his feature film debut with Snow White and the Huntsman
- will return for the sequel.
Chris and Kristen have previously joked that they are writing the follow-up but conceded it probably wouldn't be very successful.
When Kristen was asked if she was writing a movie with boyfriend Robert Pattinson, the actress said, 'No,' but Chris claimed he and the actress are working on a script.
He said: "We are. Snow White and the Huntsman 2
written by us, and it might be more of a straight-to-video version if they let us write it."
Kristen added: "It'll be better. Our version? We've basically written it. No, I'm kidding. We're gonna write the second one, all of us [in the cast]."
