Snow White And The Huntsman Sequel Loses Its Director, Keeps Its Kristen Stewart

The casting situation for Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman sequel has been a matter of speculation since a report in April suggested that Kristen Stewart might be dropped altogether and the follow-up would focus on Chris Hemsworth‘s character, Eric, instead.

The main reason for the continued propagation of this rumour is the widespread opinion that after Kristen Stewart’s torrid affair with director Rupert Sanders came blasting onto the front page of every tabloid and gossip magazine in the entire world (even here at Bleeding Cool we had a week-long mourning period for ‘Robsten’, with much weeping and cursing of the skies), the idea of the two returning to the franchise together seemed to be a recipe for disaster, or at least a recipe for gargantuan amounts of awkwardness.

For those of you who are interested, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have apparently reconciled in time for the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere, but Rupert Sanders and wife Liberty Ross, who played Stewart’s mother in the first Snow White, remain estranged. Now tell us in 25 words or less why you’re interested.

According to an anonymous source over at RadarOnline, it is the fragile state of Sanders’ marriage which will prevent him from returning for the Snow White sequel.

The script has already been written and production will begin late next year. However, Rupert Sanders definitely won’t be a part of the project. Rupert didn’t want to be a part of it to begin with because he is desperately still trying to save his marriage. The search is still on for a new director.

The article also states that, according to their ‘insider’, Stewart will be reprising her role as Snow White, but that she’s not yet attached to any other projects and is “distressed” that her future schedule is looking a lot less healthy than that of her Twilight co-stars. Apparently their anonymous source is either Stewart herself, her therapist, or her toy rabbit Mr. Snuffles in whom she confides all her most intimate feelings.
