11Kristen Stewart Doesn’t Get to Be Snow White Anymore

Oh man, welcome to Kristen Stewart‘s Bummer Summer. It’s just one thing after another for her, isn’t it? The latest thing? It looks like she just got fired from being Snow White in the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. Total bummer.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Universal has decided to shelf its planned Snow White and the Huntsman sequel and is instead focusing on a solo Huntsman movie starring Chris Hemsworth. Kristen Stewart will not be invited to return if the follow-up goes forward.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the sequel to June’s Snow White, which starred Stewart, Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, is being reconceived as a spinoff movie. It’s unclear whether director Rupert Sanders will return, though one source with ties to the production says he will. However, screenwriter David Koepp, who had been hired to pen the continuation of the original film, is being settled out of his rich contract, according to sources, as the project is being transformed into something other than the movie that Koepp had been hired to write.

“The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise,” a Universal spokeswoman says.

On one hand, I get where they’re coming from with this. Everybody hates Kristen Stewart right now, and we haven’t been able to figure out if she’ll be able to make a comeback or not. I would imagine that nobody wants to be the first person to test that out. At the end of the day, it’s a business, and Kristen’s a pretty big risk right now. But on the other, more emotional hand, I think this really sucks. Especially if Rupert Sanders gets to come back and direct this movie.

But I do remember hearing that Chris Hemsworth was going to get his very own movie all about the Huntsman before the whole cheating scandal, and according to this article, it looks like the original plan was to to a true sequel to the first movie with Kristen and THEN do the Huntsman spinoff, so it’s not like they just pulled this idea out of thin air. And personally, I think I’d enjoy the Huntsman movie more than another one with Kristen.  But still, what Kristen Stewart does with her vagina shouldn’t have this big of an impact on her career.

It’s a lot to consider, isn’t it?

    The plan was two Snow White films then a spin off, they’ve just gotten rid off the Snow White sequel. It’s fucking sexist! She gets dropped but the man who cheated on his wife and mother of his children still keeps his job. Meanwhile, Charlie Sheen keeps on getting acting work after threatening his ex wife with a knife. Hollywood is a fucking horrible misogynystic place.

      Seriously! That was my first reaction to this, wow so the man who cheated on his actual WIFE gets to keep his job but the girl who was 22 loses her job. How lovely, nevermind all of the male cheaters keeping their careers in Hollywood, hell they even let men RAPE a 13 year old and then give him an Oscar!

    Men cheat all the time, no one gives a shit. Their movie deals don’t get dropped. No one cares. No one on sites like this criticize them or say they deserve it. The only time those dudes get criticized is if they do things like punch their girlfriends — and then, only sometimes MAYBE. I mean, I could maybe write out a list of all the Hollywood men who have been caught with their pants down, but I feel as if that list could go on for days. They still don’t lose deals and still get to star in films.

    This is sexist.
    This site is taking part in sexism whether it means to or not.
    I’m disgusted.

      Two words: Tiger. Woods. Don’t we remember how many endorsements he lost? Because it was a bunch. Yeah, he was a serial cheater who had a penchant for porn stars, but hey. Cheating is cheating is cheating.

      • mireee says:

        Tiger Woods suffered racism though. Charlie Sheen tried to kill his ex and he’s on this bi-winning streak, getting desls everywhere, or Roman Polanski, or Sean Penn, or Michael Fassbender… Even Chris Brown, despite his success, would get a lot less flack if he were white, and I think we need to acknowledge that.

      • lease says:

        WHAT?! What did Fassy do? :(

      • mireee says:

        Lease — Fassbender had charges of assault towards his girlfriend, which were dropped two days after.

    This site is just posting what happened, it’s gossip…Hollywood is sexist, age-ist, and glorifies violence and every other misfortune you can think of! This site even posts shit about that baby killer Casey whatsherbucket…and she is not even a celebrity! THAT IS SICK… but that is the way it is. And personally I saw Snow White and thought it was a POS, so she is better off not being apart of it. Plus I’m guessing the directors wife was fully against KS being in the sequel. Poor little millionaire!

    Do you remember Ingrid Bergman, Ilsa in Casablanca? She fell in love with her director Roberto Rossellini and left her husband and child. They married, had more children and in 6 years, Ingrid returned to Hollywood and won the Academy Award.
    Live your life Kristen: screw the scandal mongers and hypocritical judges – it’s ludicrous to hold an actress in a moral straightjacket!

  5. M.d. says:

    This is total B.S. I think Rupert should be at fault as well and people should just chill out and leave her alone. This is so getting out of hand and then we should put some blame on Will Ferrell as well for keeping it going (HE SHOULDN’T TALK THE FCKING BLEEP)
