HollywoodLife.com has spoken to sources that tells us that Universal is in a ‘wait and see mode’ when it comes to Kristen Stewart being involved in a ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ sequel because they’re concerned that the scandal could hurt them at the box office! Read on for the inside scoop.
News that Kristen Stewart had been dropped from the sequel for Snow White and the Huntsman may have been a bit premature, but Universal, the studio that produced the film, is exploring options to take the follow-up in a direction that doesn’t include her out of fear that she could hurt them at the box office.
Sources tell HollywoodLife.com exclusively that, while a script for any propose follow-up is still far off, “they are going to give it time to see what the scandal does to her career.” “Currently, they believe the scandal will effect, negatively, [at] the box office…They are scared to invest hundreds of millions of dollars on a film that people will not want to see the star in,” sources says.
According to our sources, Kristen, 22, is not contracted for a second film, which allows the studio to “make plenty more decision on the franchise, such as a spin-off, then if they had her locked into it 100 percent.”
The project is “completely in a wait and see mode,” our sources say.
Will you still go see Kristen’s movies, HollywoodLifers? Or are Universal’s fears right? Let us know!
