Producer Joe Roth (“Alice in Wonderland”) says that the plan is to turn Universal’s upcoming “Snow White and the Huntsman” into a potential trilogy.
“It’s meant to be the first in a series of films. This story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters” he tells Entertainment Weekly.
As previously explained, Snow White in this film “starts out not a damsel in distress, but innocent, and after 11 years of imprisonment by the Evil Queen, she escapes and learns the ways of a warrior in the woods.”
Roth adds that “We retain the basic story in the same way we retain the basic story of Alice, a young girl meant to be the queen who is cast out. The Huntsman is a mercenary, in the sense that he’s a guy who is very able in the woods, more able than most anyone. His job is to capture runaway girls, who are all fleeing the kingdom because of the queen. He’s a nondescript bounty hunter, as we first meet him… He’s not a nice guy, but not only that he’s someone who has lost hope and lost faith. He has lost his wife, given up on everything.”
