It’s fairly easy nowadays to call a franchise before is been officially announced. Mainly because almost any movie (often even whether or not it was a box office success), is explored to all of its marketability ends.
In that vain comes news that A Snow White and The Huntsman sequel is in the beginning stages. And why stop there?! I smell a trilogy in the making.
While this news is hardly inconceivable, it does make for interesting industry talk. The issue is not that Snow White and the Huntsman wasn’t a successful movie. In fact, it really was. I agree with our own, Rande Iaboni: it was a good movie, not groundbreaking, but still a fun summer flick nonetheless.
And certainly when you’re thinking of the movie itself, that truly terribly inconclusive ending starts to make sense. I mean, there was definitely a love triangle there for another couple movies to explore (even given the princess’s very noticeable lack of chemistry with the prince himself).
I mean, everything about a Snow White and the Huntsman franchise makes sense. But still, I can’t help but wonder if I’d have been nearly as interested in the original if Charlize Theron wasn’t in it playing such an amazing character. And honestly, I don’t think I would have been. And moreover, I’m not sure any of the other characters were strong enough to guarantee my attendance at the next.
Either way, it definitely looks like I’ll have a chance to flesh this out in the future with Universal in the initial stages of asking Rupert Sanders back to direct. And if he, in fact, accepts this undoubtedly lucrative offer, let’s hope he has enough sense to cast an equally as bad ass villain. So, I guess I’ve come to terms with my stance on the issue: more Charlize and the like in 2013!
