Now it appears that the movie studio who made the film, Universal Pictures, has made its choice.According to The Hollywood Reporter
, the studio -- who had already approved a sequel -- hasn't actually dropped Kristen Stewart per se, but is 'reimagining' the franchise to focus on Chris Hemsworth's character, The Huntsman, instead. Their sources suggest that if the film goes ahead, it will be a spin-off similar to 'Wolverine
' from 'The X-Men

The screenwriter for 'Snow White and the Huntsman', David Koepp, has also been dropped from the follow-up film."The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise," a Universal spokeswoman says.At this stage it's unclear if Rupert Sanders will return to work on the following film, although one source suggests that he will.

'Snow White' grossed a modest $329 million at the global box office, from a $170 million production budget. Given Kristen is the highest paid actress in Hollywood right now, shaving her hefty fee would assist in a higher return if a follow-up film ever does make its way to the box office.Watch our interview with Chris Hemsworth and Rupert Sanders for 'Snow White and the Huntsman
