Kristen Stewart and writer David Koepp are both off the Snow White and The Huntsman sequel

Aug. 14, 2012by:

After the cheating incident heard round the world happened, people were wondering what this would do to the status of a sequel for SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN.

Kristen Stewart has been dropped, along with writer David Koepp. Problem solved.

They are now putting the focus on the Huntsman role, played by Chris Hemsworth. It apparently was intended for the first two films to be focused on Snow White with the third being the spin-off for Hemsworth. Now they are going straight to the spinoff. This is even if they decide to go ahead with it at all.

Koepp is getting a nice little severance package so to speak for the breaking of his contract. His services will no longer be needed since his vision was the old. Ditching Stewart will also save them some money since she is the highest paid actress as of June. There was no real reason given as to why they decided to move on without her.

Still no word on whether or not Rupert Sanders will come back on board as helmer. Sources say that he still intends to come back for work, if and when production begins.

I don't believe she was dropped. If she was, it wouldn't be because she slept with someone and had an affair, it would be because her acting was terribad.

Update: Universal just sent an email to a press member (@JoshuaHorowitz) that said that the news that Kristen Stewart was dropped is false.

Maybe they'll turn the Huntsman into the Woodsman. I'm trying to think of ways to incorporate fairy tale lore into this. Or maybe the whole project will just crumble.
As for the indiscretion angle, I think folks were looking for any excuse to trash KStew, and the studio got nervous. I dare say it's all-but-guaranteed no further Twilight entries.

THE HUNTSMAN

The HUNTSMAN Would make a lot cooler film, they can even make it rated R..and could be a standalone film for Hemsworth.

Yay. I know it's an easy train to jump on, but just judging her performance in Snow White and the Huntsman alone, it was bad. The film was actually pretty well put-together and would have been great if not for K-Stew as Snow White. However, I do want to see Snow White in this spinoff even if in a reduced role, played by another actress. I don't think the focus should shift entirely onto the Huntsman as, let's face it, he's not the most interesting character ever, and the whole point is that he

I don't think the focus should shift entirely onto the Huntsman as, let's face it, he's not the most interesting character ever, and the whole point is that he and Snow White kinda team up against Queen Ravenna and continue their adventures from there. As for David Koepp, it's less of a big deal as sequels rarely keep all their writers. I wonder if Evan Daugherty will return, because apparently he won a screenwriting competition with his spec script for Snow White and the Huntsman.

I honestly don't see the how they got to the place where they thought the director was more valuable than KStew (despite the acting ability). This was his first film, and it is not like the film broke any records (correct me if I am wrong). On the other hand, KStew has the box office numbers to back her up. And how the hell did they get that a spinoff just focusing on the Huntsman would be a good idea? This does not make one iota of sense.
And if you think the final Twilight film will bomb

And if you think the final Twilight film will bomb because of this whole scandal, you have vastly underestimated the Twihards. If a reboot was announced tomorrow, they would show up in droves to see that version. The fandom has nothing to do with the actors in the film.

Oh and I forgot to mention that they signed contracts that had the series set as a trilogy. Lots of severance pay going on here.

I like Hemsworth, but I don't get the point of making a spin-off for the Huntsman. Also, don't forget Bob Hopskins is quitting acting so he won't be back as well (not that I am sure any of the dwarves were planning to be back anyway). I say cut your losses, I don't see a lot of people getting excited about this spin-off/sequel.

Good riddance

They should have gone with another actress from the get go, oh well.
