When the announcement of another 'Snow White and the Huntsman' movie arose, fans wondered what direction Universal might take the fairy tale epic. Recently, it looked like our favorite 'Twilight' star Kristen Stewart was getting dropped from the film and Chris Hemsworth would be receiving all the attention for the next installment. But now, whether the original statement was falsely reported or Universal simply retracted what was stated initially, it looks like K-Stew is back in the game (or was never out of the game to begin with).
Earlier this year, Universal was so high on 'Snow White and the Huntsman' that they hired David Koepp to draft a sequel before the first film was even released. The film ended up doing $154 Million domestic and nearly $400 Million worldwide (on a $170 Million budget), so a sequel made sense. Then it came out that Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders had an affair. And now Koepp has left the sequel, Universal is saying that Stewart won't be back and they're talking about focusing on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman.
Everyone loves the first major interview following a public and embarrassing celebrity moment. Some people can laugh at the humor of the situation, as Fred Willard did on David Letterman following his recent public masturbation arrest, but will Robert Pattinson let his icy vampire exterior warm during his first major public appearance following Kristen Stewart's embarrassing affair? Who will be the one to crack RPattz on KStew?
It's usually better to come out of the Cannes film festival with raves, or hopefully awards, Walter Salles' 'On the Road' at least left Cannes with some heat - though part of that was due to Kristen Stewart's nude scene. There's no release date just yet, but there is a new international trailer.
