This falls in the realm of rumors we could just be hearing because the timing is right, not because anyone has any real intel: Radar is reporting that Kristen Stewart has signed on for the sequel of Snow White and the Huntsman. But director Rupert Sanders, her partner in that “indiscretion,” is out of the project, the site says, because he wants to save his marriage. That sounds wise of him.
This is appropriate timing for such an announcement, if one is imminent, because Kristen currently has no projects officially lined up now that Twilight’s all wrapped up and On the Road is hitting theaters next month. You may recall the panic caused by reports to the contrary in August, when The Hollywood Reporter said Universal was going in a non-Snow White direction for the sequel, so she wouldn’t be in it but Rupert would be directing. But the studio immediately quashed that rumor, saying they had yet to decide on anything about the next movie.
As much as we want to see KStew back in armor, kicking ass again — especially after watching her in BD2 — we’re kinda torn on SWATH 2. It brings back as many bad memories as good ones for her fans, so maybe moving on would be a better option.
What do you guys think?
