After Snow White and the Huntsman
took in nearly $400 million at the box office, Universal understandably rushed to lock up a sequel. That was before the curve ball of a cheating scandal came their way. Nothing will derail a project like news that your leading lady, in this case Kristen Stewart
, is hooking up with her married director when she's supposed to be in a relationship with one of the most famous movies stars in the world.
Initial reports suggested that, due to the behind-the-scenes drama, both Stewart and director Rupert Sanders
were on the outside looking in, and the sequel was becoming a spinoff rooted in just the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth
). But Stewart's recent interview with Indiewire
not only confirms the sequel's moving forward, but she'll also be reprising her role.
"Oh, it's gonna be fucking amazing," Stewart said of Snow White and the Huntsman 2
. "I'm not allowed [to talk about it]. The other day I said that there was a strong possibility that we're going to make a sequel, and that's very true, but everyone was like, 'Whoa, stop talking about it." So no, I'm totally not allowed to talk about it."
Production on SWATH 2
is still a ways away, and Stewart could be bullshitting for all we know. At the very least, they'll have to find a replacement for Sanders. For Robert Pattinson's sake, we hope the new director won't be another dashing British gent.
