Given the inevitable bad media Kristen Stewart’s been going through the past few weeks, one may believe that her profession will follow her private life down but maybe not that much because Stewart has just landed a role in the film adaptation of William Styron’s gritty story Lie Down in Darkness, reportedly trimming out fellow franchise actress Jennifer Lawrence. Stewart will play Peyton Loftis, a beautiful, spoiled, and tragic young Virginian lady.
Meanwhile, fans are questioning whether Stewart will reprise her role as Snow White in a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman.
A source at Universal Pictures claims that Stewart’s cheating scandal with director Rupert Sanders has not afflicted the studio’s follow up plans. However, RadarOnline reports that Sanders’ wife, model Liberty Ross, has cautioned the movie director that should he take on the sequel, he’ll put their relationship in risk. One of those trusty unnamed sources claims, “Liberty let it be known in no uncertain terms that Rupert can’t direct the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman.”
Robert Pattinson, who hasn’t been spotted since the bad information of the affair broke, is scheduled to commence advertising for his forthcoming David Cronenberg film Cosmopolis in just a few weeks. It remains to be seen how he’ll deal with questions about his personal life, now that he’s more of a hesitant tabloid fixture than ever before.
