Kristen Stewart Yes, Rupert Sanders No? SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN 2

Kristen Stewart Snow White and the Huntsman 2Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman 2? Rupert Sanders gone from the sequel?

Kristen Stewart will be returning as Snow White in the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel planned by Universal, reports the online gossip rag Radar Online. Director Rupert Sanders, however, won't be coming back. (Image: Kristen Stewart Snow White and the Huntsman.)

It's a problem having to rely on a trashy tabloid as a source of news. It's even worse when said tabloid's sources are just that, "a source." Unidentified. Unnamed. Unknown. Yet, those are sources who know all there is to know about behind-the-scenes goings-on at Universal, and with direct access to the minds of both Rupert Sanders ("Rupert didn't want to be a part of it to begin with because he is desperately still trying to save his marriage...") and Kristen Stewart ("Kristen is extremely concerned about her acting career...").

But that hasn't stopped dozens (maybe by now thousands) of online publications from passing on that bit of SWATH-related information as fact.

Of course, it could all (or at least a fraction of it) be true. And in fact, one has to admit that in regard to the Snow White and the Huntsman announcement, the tabloid's report does make sense.

Rupert Sanders movie projects

From the beginning, despite stories to the contrary it seemed absurd that Universal would proceed with a Snow White and the Huntsman sequel minus Snow White. And not that long ago, it was announced that Rupert Sanders might direct a Van Helsing reboot for Universal, starring Tom Cruise in the (not that) old Hugh Jackman role. And not long after that, it was reported that Sanders had signed on to direct the sci-fier The Juliet for Sony Pictures.

Rupert Sanders has only one body. He can't handle pre-production arrangements for and/or be on the set directing three movies at the same time. For Sanders, the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel seemed the most obvious project to get discarded. That way, the director (and Universal) could avoid more tabloid attention to the (apparent) fact that the married Sanders (to model/actress and Snow White mother Liberty Ross) would be reunited with his fellow "cheating scandal" companion Kristen Stewart, who's supposed to be Robert Pattinson's off-screen companion. You get the picture.

Kristen Stewart movie projects

Also regarding Snow White and the Huntsman 2, Kristen Stewart told The Hollywood Reporter: "No one's positive or anything, but I think there's a strong possibility." We should get some kind of confirmation (or denial) soon.

By the way, Stewart's Breaking Dawn Part 2 opened this past weekend in more than 60 countries, collecting an astonishing $340.6 million worldwide. Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner co-star. Stewart's next North American release is Walter Salles' On the Road, based on Jack Kerouac's novel, and which opens Dec. 21 – in time for Academy Award consideration. Stewart, who is a potential Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee, co-stars with Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley.

Kristen Stewart has also had her name connected to two other film projects: Lie Down in Darkness, based on William Styron's novel, and Focus, possibly to feature Ben Affleck.
