Snow White and The Huntsman Being Planned as a Trilogy

‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ is now being conceived as a trilogy, Entertainment Weekly is reporting. The folktale action-adventure movie’s producer, Joe Roth, said it will be “the first in a series of films. This story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters.”

The news comes as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’s rival Snow White film starring Julia Roberts is currently shooting. Roth’s fairytale movie, starring Kristin Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Charlize Theron as the evil queen, will begin filming principal photography in August 2011.

Roberts’ take on the fairytale will hit theaters in March 2012, while ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ will be released several months later, on June 1. But Roth hopes the audience will be drawn to his series because of its ‘Lord of the Rings’-style take on a centuries-old tale.

The heroine in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ will be quite different than the sweet princess since in previous incarnations of the tale. Roth said “She starts out not a damsel in distress, but innocent, after 11 years of imprisonment by the Evil Queen, she escapes and learns the ways of a warrior in the woods,” Roth said.

Roth said Stewart was cast as Snow White because he felt she “occupies a space in the universe where she’s a terrific actress only known for one part. I hope this is a movie that will appeal to those o find ‘Twilight’ appealing.”
