There was a lot of talk last week about Universal Studios' planned sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman and whether or not Kristen Stewart would be in it. Koepp's name was mentioned in many of those stories since he had been hired to write that sequel, emphasis on the past tense.
"I'm not involved with that anymore," he told us, confirming they had moved in a different direction. "There was a storyline I was pursuing that it turns out they don't want to pursue, so we're parting as friends. You have to have an idea and don't take a job if you don't have an idea and if you do have an idea, pursue it because ideas are currency. That's what you've got. I had an idea I was excited about it and we pursued it for a while but then they wanted to go in a different direction."
I wonder what's the direction Koepp wanted to take. And I wonder who they'll get to write it now.
movie was pretty silly at the end.
Snow White became Joah of Arc and suddently was a great warrior after being in prison for a decade.
You know, that bugged me on my first viewing too. However, on my third viewing I noticed that she only fights three grunts during the big battle and she's always the defender rather than the attacker. Also, her strikes are appropriately clumsy and others intervene in each little encounter to dispatch the attackers for her. It's easy to miss because of the unfortunate reliance on shakey cam.
Heck, when she finally challenges Ravenna, she makes the amateur mistake of tossing aside her shield (to say nothing of the fact that she rode into battle without a helm). She was more a figurehead than an actual warrior during the final battle.
