It doesn't open for another month, but Universal is already moving ahead with a sequel to the fantasy epic "Snow White and the Huntsman."
The studio is in talks with veteran screenwriter David Koepp ("Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "Spider-Man") to pen the sequel. "Huntsman" was written by Evan Daugherty, John Lee Hancock ("The Blind Side") and Hossein Amini ("Drive").
According to Deadline, the studio wants to fast-track the sequel with Rupert Sanders returning as director. Stars Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth ("The Avengers") and Oscar-winner Charlize Theron ("Monster," "Prometheus") are also likely to reprise their roles.
"Huntsman" is an edgy reviosionist take on the Snow White legend in which Snow (Stewart) is a powerful warrior trying to overthrow the evil queen (Theron). The prospect of a sequel means that the first one likely won't end with a "They lived happily ever after..." tagline.
"Snow White and the Huntsman" opens nationwide June 1.
