Snow White and the Huntsman hasn’t even hit theaters yet (June 1 is soon though), and Universal already is pushing forward with a sequel. The studio, according to Deadline’s Mike Fleming, is in discussions with David Koepp to write the the follow-up to the Kristen Stewart epic adaptation of the classic fairy tale.
Koepp’s a pretty big name in the writing world. With movies like Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, and War of the Worlds under his belt, Koepp is a natural choice for an action epic, if the studio has faith in the franchise. So good news, KStew fans: SWATH is poised for success. Plus, the project is a top priority for the studio, as they’re hoping to get director Rupert Sanders to return to shoot the sequel immediately.
