Kristen Stewart has been cut as the female lead of Snow White and the Huntsman 2, according to The Wrap.

Surprising since the Twilight actress has repeatedly shared her excitement about a sequel.

“Oh, it’s gonna be f***in’ amazing. No, I’m so excited about it, it’s crazy,” Stewart told Indiewire in December 2012 about the sequel.

“I’m not allowed [to talk about it]. The other day I said that there was a strong possibility that we’re going to make a sequel, and that’s very true, but everyone was like, ‘Whoa, stop talking about it.’ So no, I’m totally not allowed to talk about it.”

“Oh my God. F***, yeah. Absolutely,” she said on whether a sequel should be made. “And we’ve got a really amazing … [smiles] So, yeah. It’s all good. [laughs]”

The Wrap also confirms that director Rupert Sanders will not direct Huntsman 2.

Coincidence?

One interesting take on all of this is the possibility that decisions for the sequel could be fallout from one of the biggest celebrity scandals of 2012 involving Stewart and with her Snow White director, who were snapped getting very cozy with each other during filming. The scandal led to a divorce for Sanders and a breakup for Stewart with her longtime boyfriend and Twilight costar, Robert Pattinson. Some speculate that there was no way Universal would go ahead with plans for a Snow White and the Huntsman sequel with the duo.

According to The Wrap, Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont is apparently in negotiations to direct Huntsman 2.

Since the sequel is likely to focus on Chris Hemsworth‘s role as the Huntsman, this may be another explanation for Stewart’s cut. Who knows? Perhaps the character of Snow While will not even make an appearance in the film. If Stewart does return, it would most likely be “limited to cameo” or a “handful of brief scenes.”

In fact, the title may also be changed to reflect the focus on the Hunstman. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film’s title will indeed be The Huntsman.

On the other hand, Charlize Theron is likely to return as the evil queen.

Snow White and the Huntsman grossed nearly $400 million worldwide. The sequel is slated to premiere in 2016.

    That will be sorry of them if they do cut her from the movie,why do they think it made so much money in the last movie.Said she made a big mistake but she is a girl so why want they just leave it along.

    Charlize was the only one worth watching in that movie anyway. KStew was her usual boring self

  • Dorothy Kirton

    if they cut KStewart i,ll not bother to see it. Everybody in hollywood has screwed everybody in hollywood with the exception of Joan London as who would want to touch her? Get over it people and leave KS alone.I think it was a bunch of hooey anyway. Why would you do something so public when you know you,re always running from cameras? makes no sense. I Hope K Stewart wins her court case.And Good luck to her!!

    I can’t believe they would drop her! The affair is old news. People don’t care about it anymore. A Snow White movie without Snow White is pointless. I loved the first movie and was really looking forward to the sequel until I heard this news.

    Kristen should be given her role back. It was the Huntsman who kissed her and brought her back to life. Some one else made the decision about Kristen. One of the higher ups really hates this young woman

    Kristen Stewart have her baby and wearing her wedding ring . i don`t think she care, she and Robert are happy. And losing a movie part will not end kristen life.
