Frank Darabont

While there's a lot of buzz around the shortlist of directors Marvel is considering to take over Ant-Man (two more names surfaced today), there are other movies that are still in need of talent behind the camera. One of those films is the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, the 2012 fantasy revisionist fairytale starring Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth. The film is expected to arrive sometime in 2016, and Deadline reports Universal has their eyes on Frank Darabont (The Mist), Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) and Andres Muschietti (Mama) to direct the follow-up to Rupert Sanders' directorial debut. More below!

Darabont is undoubtedly my first choice for this film. He hasn't directed a film since the underrated 2007 sci-fi horror The Mist, but before that he deliver The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, both spectacular dramas. Plus, he also helped make "The Walking Dead" a hit on TV. Meanwhile, O'Connor isn't bad behind the camera either with Miracle and Warrior in his past, and this would be something very different for him as a director. Meanwhile, Muschietti seems to be the closest fit when it comes to style, especially after Mama. But he didn't jive with Universal's remake of The Mummy, so would he work well here? The plan is to shoot this film after Hemsworth completes The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so stay tuned.

    Now that I would see! Darabont seems perfect.
    Darabont has what it takes. They should really give it to him. His involvement would get my ass in a theater.

    I don't know, I just feel Darabont's talents might be wasted. I would say Muschietti would be the best choice.

    Good luck getting Darabont.
