Emily Blunt is reportedly in talks to star in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman sequel.

According to The Wrap, the Into the Woods star is being lined up to play Charlize Theron's character's evil sister the Snow Queen in the movie.

Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as Eric in the follow-up, while Theron is also back as the villainous Ravenna.

Frank Darabont had signed up to direct The Huntsman but dropped out of the project last week citing creative differences.

It is expected that a new director will be announced next week.

The Huntsman is scheduled to hit cinemas on April 22, 2016.
