The Wrap reports The Walking Dead creator and Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont is in talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2, taking over for Rupert Sanders, who directed the first one. Scheduled for a 2016 release, the sequel is expected to actually focus on Chris Hemsworth’s huntsman character, with Kristen Stewart’s Snow White relegated to a cameo, if anything. It’s exciting because we’re always saying Hollywood needs fewer movies about women and more about huntsmen.
