Frank Darabont Will Probably Be Directing ‘Snow White And The Huntsman 2’…But With No Zombies

Only an esteemed director can get away with wearing that shirt.  

I don’t think anyone would have normally expected a Snow White re-telling to include mindless, brain-hungry zombies…until Frank Darabont‘s name starts getting tossed around in relation to it. Darabont, who REALLY made a name for himself by directing The Shawshank Redemption and other thoughtful fare, is better known these days as the creator of The Walking Dead who got fired acrimoniously.

Well, after Mob City didn’t work out so well for him. he’s looking to go a more time-tested and secure route: Do stuff that Disney has made popular. More specifically, getting behind the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, a retelling that paired Kristen Stewart with Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth.

This time around, it’s believed that the film will focus more on the Huntsman, because who really wants to spend 90 minutes with Kristen Stewart, all twitchy and tired looking…

The film will be out sometime in 2016, assuming there isn’t a zombie apocalypse by then.
