Here’s What A Snow White And The Huntsman Sequel Would Be About – Does It Spoil The First Film?

The last big interview with Universal’s president and COO Ron Meyer saw him trash a number of the studio’s movies, saving specific slurs for The Wolfman, Cowboy and Aliens and – most unfairly – Babe 2: Pig in the City. How silly.

Now, the two big talking points in a new interview between Meyer and The Hollywood Reporter are his feelings on 3D, and some potential Universal sequels. Nothing quite so contentious, I suppose.

On 3D:

I’m not a fan of 3D as an audience member. I’m too old for it. I don’t like wearing the glasses over my glasses.There is a place for it, an important place. I just don’t think we should kid ourselves that it is an end-all for the business.

Regarding sequels, there are a few interesting bits and pieces. For example, Meyer doesn’t want to sequelise The Lorax, considering it inherently suited to being a one-off, but is pushing ahead with more Dr. Seuss movies, plural, with Cat in the Hat just the next.

As regards Snow White and the Huntsman, which gives the Snow White story a Legend-meets-Lord of the Rings vibe, Meyer knows that sequels are very possible. Indeed – when I attended a presentation of footage from the film this week, the Universal reps were quite clear in talking about it as a franchise-starter.

From the Meyer piece:

While the [film] doesn’t appear to lend itself to a sequel, Universal thinks it can do more movies based on the character of the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) if it is successful.

Not Snow White herself?

Is there some reason that they couldn’t spin her off into subsequent stories? It could be that the character dies in the movie. It could be that Kristen Stewart wouldn’t sign up for multiple movies. Or it could just be a creative decision.

By which I mean a marketing decision, really: they see Huntsman movies more “franchisable” than The Further Adventures of Snow White.
