‘Snow White’ To Return . . . Without Kristen Stewart?

Snow White and the Huntsman may not stick out in your head as a blockbuster worthy of a sequel. But anytime a film with an A-list cast pulls in almost $400 million in worldwide grosses, odds are somebody, somewhere is planning round two.

So it’s no great surprise that The Hollywood Reporter and The Wrap are reporting that Tinseltown has something cooking. Frank Darabont may helm a sequel (or perhaps a spin-off) to the 2012 flick starring Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, and Chris Hemsworth.

Theron and Hemsworth are due to return, but when it comes to Stewart, the Magic 8 Ball reads, “Outlook not so good.” The Hollywood Reporter writes that Stewart, who is arguably the biggest star of the trio, won’t be back at all. The Wrap poses the possibility that she may return but with a much smaller, cameo-size role.

The movie’s sequel is said to now be a spin-off entitled ‘The Huntsman’, focusing on Chris Hemsworth’s character. And Kristen, who played the iconic fairy tale character in the original movie in 2012, is said to have been axed from the sequel as it takes a new angle under director Frank Darabont.

There had previously been reports claiming she would be exiting the franchise, although these were emphatically denied by the studio at the time. Instead, it is said the film – now titled ‘The Huntsman’ – will follow Chris Hemsworth in the titular role. Meanwhile, Charlize Theron will still be back as Queen Ravenna, Snow White’s evil stepmother.

With new director Darabont taking charge, it means former boss Rupert Sanders – who had an affair with Stewart during their time on the movie – will also not be returning for the much-anticipated sequel, which is due to be released in 2016.

  1. “Arguably the biggest star of the trio?” Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Oh my bad!!! You said arguably so its not a definitely.

      Hahahahaa!!! Anyi, you’re cruel. And yes, I left that adjective there for your mocking pleasure. 🙂

  2. I’m not surprised at all that Kristen and the Director guy has been axed off! I mean, after that scandalous indiscretion, I didn’t expect anything less! In its wake, Kristen’s career’s taken a dive! She lost Rob and is gone into oblivion, forgotten! So much for being the ‘break-out’ star of a mega blockbuster that announced her to the world! Sad!

  3. Anyi is just an effing clown. loooooooooolllllll. But I think Kristen has suffered enuf for her indiscretion. I’m no longer mad @ her. I’m beginning 2 pity her.

      Oh really? A homewrecker has had enough and needs forgiveness, whereas a girlfriend-beater who has suffered much longer should carry on without our forgiveness? *fuming* Isn’t that a tad double standard-ish?

  4. I have no issue with him for the beating joor. It’s the yo-yoing between the two babes that has me raising eyebrows. Plus he had another assault charge after the beating. Whose husband has Kristen been seen kissing lately?
