After over-performing at the box office last weekend with an impressive $56.2 million, Universal Pictures is fast-tracking a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman.

We reported back in April that the studio hired screenwriter David Koepp to draft the sequel, nearly a full month before the movie even opened in theaters. Now Universal is in early talks with director Rupert Sanders to return for this follow-up. The filmmaker is interested in helming the sequel, and he doesn't have another project lined up, but the deal still isn't finalized yet.

Actors Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, and Charlize Theron all have deals in place to return for the sequel.
