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.
It’s unclear whether director Rupert Sanders will return, though one source with ties to the production says he will.
While it might have been awkward for Stewart and Sanders to reunite for a sequel, it is not clear why the decision to move forward without Stewart was made.
Um, yes it is. She’s a terrible actress. They didn’t even let her talk in the first trailer. Also, no one likes her. Since ‘Twilight’ in 2008, she’s been in 4 movies that weren’t sequels or ‘Snow White’.
‘Adventureland’. It’s made a total of $17.1 million, worldwide.
‘The Yellow Handkerchief’. It’s made a total of $318,000, worldwide.
‘The Runaways’. It’s made a total of $4.6 million, worldwide.
‘Welcome to the Rileys’. It’s made a total of $317,000, worldwide.
There’s tons of really good young actresses in Hollywood, there’s no advantage whatsoever to casting Stewart, other than the fact that she’ll blow the director and knows where to score kick-ass weed.
CONFLICTING UPDATE - Universal now says pretty much the exact opposite of all this.
Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, and Chris Hemsworth all walked the red carpet in London last night for the premiere of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, and in the middle of all that, for reasons that only made sense in her pot addled mind, Stewart knelt down and flipped off Theron and Thor.
How this monotone 6 continues to get a free pass while Megan Fox gets attacked is one of the most baffling things I’ve ever seen. She always looks like she doesn’t think she’s in this scene, even while the other characters are all staring at her.
Kristen Stewart is the star of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, but anytime she tries to act it’s as if she’s reading the script for the first time, and the words are upside down and backwards, and she got really really high first. That’s probably why they don’t let her talk, at all, in the trailer that came out today (HD copies here).
In fact she’s barely even in it. Maybe because it eventually dawned on someone that this movie is about Charlize Theron being jealous because Kristen Stewart is hotter than she is, and how that makes no sense, so they just edited around her. I wouldn’t be against them doing that with the whole movie by the way.
‘Snow White’ has been a famous story for generations, but everyone has always hated that she doesn’t wear armor and ride a horse on the beach and mumble incoherently with a dead, lifeless expression on her face. Thank God Hollywood has finally decided to fix those obvious shortcomings.
