Universal to release 'The Huntsman' in 2016, pushes back 'The Mummy'
So much happened before Snow White dropped in.
Universal Pictures announced the release date for The Huntsman, a prequel of sorts to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman with Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron reprising their roles of the Huntsman Eric and evil queen Ravenna. The film, directed by Frank Darabont, will be released on Friday, April 22, 2016 and reveal how the two characters interacted before Snow White ever met a dwarf.
The Huntsman takes the date previously occupied by The Mummy, which will now be pushed back two months to Friday, June 24, 2016. The reboot of the action-adventure films written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) will be conceived by a highly respectable team of producers including Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek), Roberto Orci (Transformers), Chris Morgan (Fast and Furious 6), and Sean Daniel (The Mummy trilogy).
