Universal Studios Chairman Adam Fogelson has confirmed what direction the SWATH sequel story will take in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Last December, Deadline reported that SWATH Producer Joe Roth stated that a script for the sequel was written and turned in by screenwriter Evan Daugherty. Kristen Stewart confirmed seeing a script which she said she liked in her own Stewart-y way.
Now Fogelson gives insight on the story's angle.
Fogelson to THR: "We're actively developing the movie right now with Kristen's character central, as well as the Huntsman role. We think that for a first movie out of the gate to do basically $400 million worldwide, there is a lot of opportunity.
He also confirmed that the sequel will most likely have a different director.
So there you have it unless something changes. The studio, the producer and the lead actress all have confirmed that a sequel script is in development.
Now the only thing left is to determine the title, the new and returning cast members and the first day of pre-production. So let the race to the premiere begin!!
