No ‘Snow White’ Sequel For Kristen Stewart?
Universal has decided to shelf its planned Snow White and the Huntsman sequel and is instead focusing on a solo Huntsman movie starring Chris Hemsworth. Kristen Stewart will not be invited to return if the follow-up goes forward.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the sequel to June’s Snow White, which starred Stewart, Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, is being reconceived as a spinoff movie. It’s unclear whether director Rupert Sanders will return, though one source with ties to the production says he will. However, screenwriter David Koepp, who had been hired to pen the continuation of the original film, is being settled out of his rich contract, according to sources, as the project is being transformed into something other than the movie that Koepp had been hired to write.
“The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise,” a Universal spokeswoman says.
They may keep Rupert Sanders as director, but drop Kristen? That is the biggest bunch of BS! How is that right? SHE made that movie! $389.2 million worldwide was not because Rupert was the director. SMH.
UPDATE FROM GOSSIP COP!
The site then notes, “Kristen Stewart will not be invited to return if the follow-up goes forward.”
Those are some big claims.
And they’re WRONG.
A well-placed insider tells Gossip Cop that Stewart “hasn’t been dropped,” adding that theTHR story is “inaccurate.”
“There isn’t a script” yet, our source points out, making it impossible to know for sure which characters will be included in future installments.
In fact, a spokesperson for Universal says NO decisions have been made.
“The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise,” the rep says.
Wow, THR. Way to get everyone all riled up. OK, so Kristen may or may not be in the sequel still. So nothing new to really report. LOL!
