'Snow White and the Huntsman' Sequel Shelved; Spinoff Planned

Snow White and the Huntsman

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal has decided not to proceed with the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. Instead, the studio will do with a spinoff focusing on Chris Hemsworth's character, the Huntsman.

Kristen Stewart, who plays Snow White, is not going to be in the new movie, and it is likely that director Rupert Sanders will have no part in this as well, but his role is unknown at this point.

David Koepp, who was hired to pen Snow White and the Huntsman 2, was paid for his services and was let go, according the the report. Universal will look for another writer to work on the spinoff and hopes to start filming the movie next July, when Hemsworth is available.

It is obvious why Universal is doing this. Ever since news of the affair between Stewart and Sanders broke, the pair's reputation has been tarnished. Marketing any movie with the two is going to be an uphill battle.

Since so much of Stewart's appeal is tied up in the Twilight movies, and I'm probably reaching here, fans may reject her other movies due to her betrayal of co-star Robert Pattinson. The two was dating before the affair happened.

Stewart was attached to star and produce the indie action-thriller Cali before dropping out. No reason was given, but we can guess why.
