It’s taking a long time to get the follow-up to Snow White & The Huntsman ready for the big screen but it finally seems to be coming together.
Chris Hemsworth is still around – indeed he’s at the centre as the movie is just called Huntsman – and now Deadline reports that Emily Blunt has finalised her deal to play the villain, and that Jessica Chastain is now in talks for the film, although it’s not clear what her role will be.
Last month it appeared Nick Frost wouldn’t be back after being unable to come to terms with Universal, but now it seems he’ll return after all.
Unfortunately we don’t have too many details about what the film will be about, but we do know Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is directing from a screenplay that’s been worked on by the likes of Frank Darabont, Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos. An April 2016 release date has been set.
