I never saw Snow White and the Huntsman, it just didn’t seem like my thing. Which makes it kind of hard for me to be interested in a followup or spin-off aside from the fact that one of my favorite directors, Frank Darabont, will be helming it (he also did the newest draft of the script). But it’s coming anyway, and now we get the news that this new film, called The Huntsman, is actually a prequel (which makes more sense). And yes, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron will be returning (although Kristen Stewart won’t). The new film hits on April 22nd, 2016.
Yesterday we also got the news that Alex Kurtzman would be directing The Mummy reboot, part of a larger cinematic universe for Universal. That film has now moved to get out of The Huntsman‘s way and will come out on June 24th, 2016. Hit the jump for more on The Huntsman release date and what lays ahead in the film.
