Earlier we told you that Universal’s Pitch Perfect 2 would debut in 2015. Now we’re learning that they’ve also announced the Snow White and the Huntsman 2 release date timeframe.
The Snow White and the Huntsman sequel will be released in 2015, Universal said at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Nevada today.
But will it star Kristen Stewart who portrayed Snow? Readers may recall that the film had a rocky launch when it was revealed that Stewart and director Rupert Saunders had an affair. That led to Stewart and boyfriend/Twilight co-star Rob Pattinson breaking up. They’ve since gotten back together.
Though there were conflicting reports last year, remarks made by Stewart in December indicate she does intend to star in the movie. “Oh, it’s gonna be f—ing amazing. No, I’m so excited about it, it’s crazy,” she said when asked by IndieWire about the role. Her interest and excitement implies she’s attached to the project.
One report indicates that Snow White and the Huntsman 2 will focus on Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman character in what can be considered something of a spin off. Saunders will most definitely not be returning to the production.
In related Universal news, today we also learned that Fast & Furious 7 will hit theaters July 11, 2014. The news comes as the studio is gearing up for the May 24 release of Fast & Furious 6.
