“Snow White and the Huntsman” To Be a Trilogy?

In an interview with EW, producer Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland, Oz: The Great and Powerful) explained that Snow White and the Huntsman is actually the first in a planned trilogy of films and revealed how exactly this re-imagining of the classic fairytale will be similar to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and differs from the Julia Roberts Snow White film:

“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. 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.”

Snow White and the Huntsman begins shooting this coming August and is slated to hit theaters on June 1st, 2012. (Source)
