Snow White and the Huntsman

Snow Sequel: Fairy tale fans rejoice! A sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman looks like it’s moving forward. Writer David Koepp was hired in late April to pen the script, and now director Rupert Sanders is in talks to return. The studio has options for stars Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth to reprise their roles as well. The film has grossed $118 million worldwide to date. [Deadline]

It Will be Two: We just heard that Stephen King’s short story The Ten O’Clock People is headed to the big screen, and now comes word that his massive novel It will be adapted into two movies with director Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre, Sin Nombre) at the helm. Fukunaga will also co-write the screenplays with Chase Palmer. The book centers on a small group who are tormented both as children and adults by a mysterious creature in the form of a sadistic clown. It was previously adapted for a TV mini-series in 1990.

Biblical Love: Earlier this week, Darren Aronofsky’s Noah added Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth to play Noah’s sons Ham and Shem, respectively. Emma Watson is now in talks to play a love interest for Shem, Noah’s oldest son. In the Bible account, Noah had three sons who were all married when they entered the Ark; we’ll have to wait to see what happens in Aronofsky’s version -- and also to find out if Jennifer Connelly or Julianne Moore will play Noah’s wife, and if Liev Schreiber will create problems as Noah’s “nemesis,” as rumored.
