Kristen Stewart’s Snow White Reportedly Nixed From Huntsman Sequel [Update]

Next time around, it's just The Huntsman. Kristen Stewart, whose turn as Snow White has helped Snow White and the Huntsman blast to nearly $400 million worldwide, will not reappear in a sequel to the now-franchise, The Hollywood Reporter writes. What was originally conceived as a standard follow-up will now be shifted into spinoff territory, because that's what happens when 41-year-old married directors shadily canoodle with their publicly committed 22-year-old actresses. (And when said directors' wives forbid them from working with aforementioned actresses. Supposedly.) THR says it's not a sure bet Rupert Sanders will direct again, although it appears likely. Meanwhile, screenwriter David Koepp (Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible) is out. UPDATE: Universal tells the L.A. Times 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."
