Snow White and the Huntsman sequel set for 2015 release

Washington: After months of speculation about a possible Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson has confirmed that the studio is indeed planning a second installment of the movie.

Fogelson announced the news at a CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Tuesday, April 16.

The film is apparently in development for a targeted 2015 release date, Us magazine reported.

Last summer, Kristen Stewart`s future with the franchise seemed uncertain after she and director Rupert Sanders were caught cheating on their respective significant others.

In December, however, the actress suggested to Indiewire that she was "absolutely" on board for a sequel but under strict instructions not to talk about it.

There`s no word yet on the plot of the second film, or who from the original will be returning.

Sanders is reportedly not directing, but the cast members` fates are still up in the air.
