Kristen Stewart, who has already lost the man she loves, faces more humiliation as it has been confirmed that she won’t feature in the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman.
Universal Studio is said to have devised a spin-off film where the narrative will focus on the huntsman, played by nice family man, Chris Hemsworth.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the news comes just weeks after pictures of the young actress getting intimate with film’s married director Rupert Sanders emerged, the Daily Mail reported.
The LA Times quote the film’s makers Universal as saying that she still “could” have a role, but the film will not centre around the Twilight star’s performance.
Writer David Keopp, who penned the original film, has left after being paid out of his contract to write the sequel.
“According to sources, as the project is being transformed into something other than the movie that Koepp had been hired to write,” they wrote.
There’s no official word as to whether Englishman Sanders, 41, will get another chance to direct or not, although industry sources seem to be erring towards an affirmative.
Sander’s heartbroken wife, Liberty Ross is said to have banned him from ever working with the actress again, but obviously before the film’s new concept was revealed.
“Liberty let it be known in no uncertain terms that Rupert can’t direct the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman,” a source told Radar Online.
