Rupert Sanders was originally lined up to direct ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2,’ but since news broke that he cheated on wife Liberty Ross with Kristen Stewart, Liberty is reportedly demanding he give up the gig! Read on for all the details!
“Liberty let it be known in no uncertain terms that Rupert can’t direct the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman,” a source revealed to Radar Online.
“They are trying to work things out after he was caught having an affair, and that is one of the sticking points. She just doesn’t want him to ever work with Kristen again. Rupert is obviously disappointed because Snow White and the Huntsman was his directorial debut, and he had hoped on building on that with a follow-up after some decent reviews. But he knows his actions were inexcusable, and he’s going to have to bite the bullet and listen to his wife on this one,” the source added.
At this point, Kristen, 22, isn’t focusing on the sequel to SWATH with the promotion of Breaking Dawn — Part 2 coming soon, but she would get preferential treatment.
“Kristen, as the film’s lead, will get preference over Rupert and Universal will just find another director,” the source said.
