Kristen Stewart is set to reprise her role as the fairy tale princess in the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, but the film's cheating director Rupert Sanders will not be a part of the flick, it has been revealed.
According to Radar Online, the script has been written and production will begin late next year, the New York Post reported.
Sanders is out because he’s allegedly busy saving his marriage to Liberty Ross.
They’ve been on the mend after news broke of his dalliance with the younger starlet in July.
“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,” a source said.
Meanwhile, Stewart is worried because she doesn’t have any other films lined up after the Snow White sequel, the source claimed.
“Kristen is extremely concerned about her acting career,” the insider said.
“Other than the Snow White sequel she isn’t attached to any other projects. There are scripts coming in, but not as many good ones as she would like,” the source said.
The source added that the actress is worried that the scandal might have irreparably damaged her career.
“It’s distressing to Kristen that Rob is attached to four separate movies over the next year-and-a-half,” the source said.
“Even her Twilight co-stars, Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene, are more in demand than ever, with both committed to two different movies each.
“Kristen just hopes that that the fallout over her relationship with Rupert doesn’t hurt her career,” the source added.
