A ‘Snow White’ Sequel?
Meredeth Woerner of i09 is none too keen on the announcement of a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, reasonably cynical that the decision has everything to do with money and dubious of the any other point (spoilers) now that Snow White has slain the evil Queen Ravenna and replaced her as head of the kingdom.
I can’t say the prospect of David Koepp writing the script excites me–I’d much rather that opportunity go to Brian Helgeland or Jane Espenson–but a sequel could help develop Snow White’s underdeveloped character and, in effect, improve the first film.
Were I given the honor, I would highlight the conflicts that arise between Snow White’s inherent saintliness and the corrupting influences of ruling a country, but I’d keep the plot more fairy tale than Game of Thrones fantasy given the tenor and tone of the first movie.
My review of Snow White and the Huntsman is here.
