I’m not sure I understand some Hollywood plans. I mean, there are some projects that have “trilogy” word written all over them from the beginning, but Rupert Sanders‘ upcoming Snow White And The Huntsman? You must be kidding!
But no, they’re not kidding, and it looks that there will be further versions of this movie. What’s the point? Who cares!
Maybe there will be even seven sequels! After all, Snow White is Snow White because she has seven good little friends and they also deserve a lot of attention…
So, here’s the thing! “It’s meant to be the first in a series of films. This story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters.”
That’s exactly what Joe Roth, the producer of the Snow White And The Huntsman revealed in an interview with EW, adding that they:
“…retain the basic story in the same way we retain the basic story of Alice, a young girl meant to be the queen who is cast out… The Huntsman is a mercenary, in the sense that he’s a guy who is very able in the woods, more able than most anyone.
His job is to capture runaway girls, who are all fleeing the kingdom because of the queen. He’s a nondescript bounty hunter, as we first meet him… [Snow White] starts out not a damsel in distress, but innocent, and after 11 years of imprisonment by the Evil Queen, she escapes and learns the ways of a warrior in the woods…”
I think that this is quite boring, although I do admit the movie has great cast on board. Just in case you already forgot it, here they are once again.
The main cast includes Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Charlize Theron as Evil Queen, Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman and Sam Claflin as Snow White’s Prince. On the other hand, quite impressive dwarfs-list as well.
We have Ian McShane as Caesar, the eldest. Then Stephen Graham as Nero, the angry one. Eddie Izzard is Tiberius, the biggest and burliest. Bob Hoskins is the blind Constantine.
Toby Jones as the timid Claudius, while Ray Winstone and Eddie Marsan are the twins Trajan and Hadrian. In addition to that, Lily Cole comes on board to play Greta together with Sam Spruell who will play Finn, the Queen’s henchman sent to kill the Huntsman and Snow White.
At the end, let me just remind you that the movie starts shooting this August, and is scheduled to open on June 1, 2012.
As usual, feel free to share your thoughts on this one, I’ll be happy to hear your opinion on the Snow White And The Huntsman possible trilogy.
