The scandal caused by the fraud between Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders forced the producers to postpone the filming of the “Snow White and the Huntsman” sequel, and the actress was even excluded from the project.
According to Hollywood Reporter, the bosses of the Universal film company have revised their plans and decided to start shooting a film about the Huntsman with Chris Hemsworth performing the leading role. It is unclear whether Sanders will take the producer’s seat, although some well-informed sources claim that he will head the project.
The rumor goes that the scriptwriter of the film “Snow White and the Huntsman” David Koepp, who had been hired to write the sequel of the blockbuster, failed to sign his expensive contract. The producers have revised their plans and decided to “transform” the project dramatically. The representative of the Universal film company said that the studio was considering various options for continuing the franchise.
This case is quite unique: Hollywood film bosses usually hesitate to replace the lead actors between the first and second film. The original plan was to create two pictures about the adventures of Snow White and the Huntsman, and then release a single movie, perhaps a prequel about the Hunter, following the example of “X-Men” series.
The producers are now waiting for Hemsworth to finish acting in the continuation of the “Thor” movie. And Kristen will have to calculate losses: who knows how this scandal will affect her projects.
