EMILY BLUNT: Actress To Play Villain In THE HUNTSMAN

Emily Blunt went from being a Full Metal B*tch in Edge Of Tomorrow to a Baker's Wife in Into The Woods, and according to The Wrap she will be the main villain in The Huntsman. It's a spinoff of the 2012 film Snow White & The Huntsman. Kristen Stewart ("Still Alice"), who starred in the first film, won't be back, but Chris Hemsworth ("Avengers: Age Of Ultron") and Charlize Theron ("Mad Max: Fury Road") are.

The sequel sends the Huntsman on a quest to find the magic mirror (which has been stolen), forcing him to face not only his past but the evil Snow Queen who’s set on avenging her sister Ravenna’s death. Charlize Theron will return as the villainous Ravenna and Blunt is making a deal to play her sister, the evil Snow Queen.

Deadline is reporting that director Frank Darabont, the former showrunner of The Walking Dead and the director of Shawshank Redemption, has left the project. They expect Universal to choose a new director by next week. Maybe Universal will revisit two directors that were on the short list last sumer, Gavin O’Connor ("Warrior") and Andy Muschietti ("Mama")? Or, maybe they got their eyes set on someone new. We'll find out soon enough.
