Somebody give Kristen Stewart a hug. Universal has been puzzling over how to make a sequel to Snow White And The Huntsman after the first film made $396 million. Rumors circulated that she would play a small-to-nonexistent part in the new film, which would primarily focus on the character of the Huntsman played by Chris Hemsworth. But no one would have guessed the studio was ruthless enough to simply subtract her from the equation completely to make The Huntsman.
Back in 2012, the fairy tale epic Snow White and the Huntsman turned out to be a pretty mixed bag. Made for a high $170 million, the film was able to make nearly $400 million at the global box office, but it also suffered the wrath of many critics and had to deal with a behind the scenes controversy regarding star Kristen Stewart having an affair with director Rupert Sanders.
Chris Hemsworth, you sexy beast you.

Following recent reports that have surfaced saying that the studio would be making the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel as a spin-off without Stewart, Universal Co-Chairman Donna Langley has issued a statement saying...
They say that sleeping with the director is a great way to get ahead in Hollywood, but apparently that's not working out so well for Kristen Stewart. It's now being reported that Universal Pictures is scrapping their plans to make a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman and instead will focus on making a movie about The Huntsman, who was played by Chris Hemsworth.
Nearly a year before the movie even came out the folks behind Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman were talking about the film as the first of a franchise. In an intervieq producer Joe Roth - who also worked on Disney's Alice in Wonderland - said that the idea was to have Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron return for a trilogy of movies as the Snow White, The Huntsman, and Ravenna, respectively.
