The interwebs pretty much blew up with the inestimable rage of the Kristen Stewart faithful (up to and an including former "Panic Room" co-star Jodie Foster, who actually wrote an essay about it) after her ill-advised smooch session with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders was followed up with reports of her being dropped from the sequel... All the while he, a forty-something married father of two who was equally as involved, was expected to saddle right back up on his director's chair without consequence. "No fair!" cried the collective public.
Universal Pictures jumped in to put the kibosh on that potentially ugly rumor right away, declaring "any reports that Kristen Stewart has been dropped are false," but hasn't uttered a peep about the matter since the summer.
Hope of her returning for movie two all but flitted away for most fans in the time since, and K.Stew was even quoted at "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" premiere last week to state she was "desperate to get a job."
Now, though, there's a little turnabout action going on with this story.
As detailed by Cinema Blend, there are now talks of Kristen Stewart reprising her role as Snow and Rupert Sanders being told to take a long hike in some. Evidently, Sanders might bow out gracefully from the project as he is "desperately still trying to save his marriage" and, presumably, re-linking with the project that caused it so much strain is not the bestest and brightest of ideas.
"Who knew a married director making out with his leading lady was a bad idea?" said no one ever.
