The fate of Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has been up in the air ever since it was revealed that the film’s lead actress, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) had an affair with the film’s married director, Rupert Saunders. The first film, Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, and Charlize Theron, grossed nearly $400 million world wide after its release in 2012.
