Snow White To Be A Trilogy

Kirsten Stewart at the 82nd Academy Awards
Film site reported on Monday that the new Snow White And The Huntsman film will be a trilogy.
Producer Joe Roth said the Kristen Stewart-starring fairytale revamp would constitute three films.

"It's meant to be the first in a series of films," he said.

"This story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters."

It sounds to me like a Stewart-vehicle to make yet more money. She has been in a bunch of Twilight films so why can she not star in another slew of fantastical movies?

She plays Snow White, who is sent away by Charlize Theron’s evil queen. Snow White then meets the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth of Thor).

"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," Mr Roth said.

"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," he said.

I think Hemsworth may be able to act but Stewart leaves me with questions. Theron may make a good queen.
