Update: A source close to Kristen Stewart tells Hollyscoop that the reports that the actress was dropped from Snow White and the Huntsman are not true.
In addition, the Los Angeles Times reports that "the studio that released that film, Universal, insists that plans for a second movie centering on the Huntsman character played by Chris Hemsworth are proceeding and that Stewart’s Snow White could still be a character in that film, despite reports that suggested otherwise."
More drama from the land of Kristen Stewart.
Now that it is public knowledge that she has a hard time keeping her hands to herself, the actress’ promiscuous past might be having an affect on the her professional life. K-Stew has reportedly been dropped from any plans to revisit Snow White and the Huntsman in sequel form.
If you’re familiar with all the drama surrounding the first movie you may have just said something like, “Awwwwwwww snap!”
The reason this is big news is because: A) Stewart had a major role – if not the lead role – (as freakin’ Snow White!) in the first film, so it is more or less unheard of to move on without her in round two; and B) The director of the first, Rupert Sanders, could still return for two and he’s the married guy she was caught sucking face with that caused the whole K-Stew-R-Patz drama-fest to begin with.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, there is no official word let as to whether a Sanders directorial return is a sure thing, so we can’t officially say that this decision has to do with the cheating scandal. However, sources say there is a good chance that the director will on the pay role for number two.
Originally, the plan was for a sequel, as screenwriter David Koepp already penned a continuation draft that would bring back all the previous cast members. Since then, Koepp is being “settled out” of his contract as the movie is now doing a complete 180.
“The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise,” a spokeswoman from Universal told Hollywood Reporter.
These options include a spinoff style movie that would avoid the whole “Snow White” thing to begin with and instead star Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron.
How exactly do you do a Snow White film without Snow White? I have no clue.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that – according to Universal - K-Stew could still reprise her role as White in the second movie centering around not her. But what would that do other than just add to the awkwardness?
K-Stew or no K-Stew, we can’t wait to see how the drama unfolds!
