Earlier reports and several sites claimed that Kristen Stewart would be dropped by Universal from the next “Snow White” Film.
But according to Universal the reports are false,
According to THEWRAP:
Universal Pictures has denied a report stating that the studio had dropped the actress from the project in the aftermath of her infidelities with the original “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders.
“We are extremely proud of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and we’re currently exploring all options to continue the franchise,” Donna Langely, the co-chairman of Universal Pictures, said in a statement to TheWrap. “Any reports that Kristen Stewart has been dropped are false.”
The Hollywood Reporter cited unnamed sources on Tuesday saying Universal dropped Stewart from the next film in the franchise.
Universal has been planning a sequel to this summer’s film, which was a modest success at the box office, with a production budget of $170 million and a global gross of roughly $389 million.
It remains unclear whether Sanders would direct, though it’s hard to imagine he would be given the recent tabloid frenzy sparked by his extramarital romance with Stewart.
