It's the story that won't end. Last night, the Twittersphere erupted when reports went around that Universal was considering a "Snow White and the Huntsman" sequel focused on Chris Hemsworth (which was kind of old news), with THR throwing fuel on the tire fire by adding that Kristen Stewart wouldn't be invited back for the follow-up. Well, rest your weary heads KStew fans, as she's still going to get her chance to shine (and no, we don't mean as a vampire).

Snow White And The Huntsman, Kristen Stewart

It's the story that won't end. Last night, the Twittersphere erupted when reports went around that Universal was considering a "Snow White and the Huntsman" sequel focused on Chris Hemsworth (which was kind of old news), with THR throwing fuel on the tire fire by adding that Kristen Stewart wouldn't be invited back for the follow-up. Well, rest your weary heads KStew fans, as she's still going to get her chance to shine (and no, we don't mean as a vampire).

Deadline is taking some particular glee at THR being incorrect or whatever, as they've received a statement from Universal Co-Chairman Donna Langley that says: “We are extremely proud of 'Snow White And The Huntsman' and we’re currently exploring all options to continue the franchise. Any reports that Kristen Stewart has been dropped are false.” As the site notes, with screenwriter David Koepp exiting and not a single page of a script being written, it was probably premature to say that Stewart was out. But what does seem to be clear is that any follow-up is moving toward centering on Hemsworth, whether she's involved or not.

But the bigger question here is: does anybody care to see another one? Yes, 'Huntsman' hauled in just under $400 million worldwide, so there certainly was interest. However, the film wasn't exactly a critical darling, and in this writer's opinion, was kind of terrible and nonsensical. (If the Queen couuld turn into a flock of birds and find the Snow White, why did she wait until the end of the movie to do that? How did Snow White learn to ride a horse while being trapped in a tower for her whole life? We could go on...) But even from those who did like the movie, there doesn't seem to have been a groundswell for a followup. But with fairy tales a hot thing, particularly on TV, we can see why from a studio perspective that they want to keep the idea percolating.

But do you want to see "Snow White and the Huntsman: Part Deux"? Does it matter if Hemsworth and Stewart are both in it? Tell us below.
