Kristen Stewart will not be a part of the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman which has grossed more than $389 million worldwide.
Universal will center their sequel on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Married director Rupert Sanders, who was caught having an affair with Stewart, hasn't confirmed whether he'll be involved in the next film from the franchise.
A Universal spokesperson released the following statement: "The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise."
A source tells THR that the studio's original plan was to create a sequel centered around Stewart, then follow up with a third film about the Huntsman. However, the studio reportedly had a change of heart following news of Stewart's affair with Sanders.
Hemsworth is expected to begin filming the sequel next July.
