Variety reports that Frank Darabont is in talks to direct a planned spinoff to Snow White and the Huntsman. The new film would focus on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman character.
According to sources, Kristen Stewart may appear in the film in a small roll, but it would likely be a cameo. The first film only grossed $155 million domestically off an estimated $170 million budget, but it did fairly strong business overseas, grossing almost $400 million worldwide.
Darabont reportedly pitched a story idea that centered around the Huntsman character, hence the studio going with a new and fresh approach for the spinoff.
