Snow White and the Huntsman producer Joe Roth spoke with EW and revealed that they are going to make a
ton of money trilogy out of the story.
“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. 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,” Roth added. “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. She 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.”
Shooting begins next month with the first one releaseing on June 1, 2012 and will be directed by Rupert Sanders. The cast is phenomenal: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin, Chris Hemsworth, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Graham, Ray Winstone, Lily Cole and Sam Spruell.
