Universal Wants A “Huntsman” Sequel

A recent interview with NBC Universal Studios president and COO Ron Meyer in The Hollywood Reporter the other day had the studio chief talking about plans for the company’s future film development slate.

The central message appeared to be a desire to keep pushing the franchises that Universal has created including new entries in the Bourne, Mummy and “Fast and Furious” franchises along with their various animated efforts at Illumination Entertainment.

The surprise came when discussion turned to their upcoming “Snow White and the Huntsman”, and film that doesn’t lend itself to a sequel. Nevertheless it seems Meyer thinks they can do a spinoff based on the character of the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) if the movie is successful.

If the film does take off, there’s no guarantee of such a move but we’ll see.
