Kristen Stewart as Snow White in scene from movie "SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN" , Universal Pictures
NEW YORK (AP) - Universal Pictures is continuing to pursue a sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman" in the wake of Kristen Stewart's affair with the film's director.
Universal co-chairman Donna Langley said in a statement Wednesday that the studio is "currently exploring all options to continue the franchise" and that reports of Stewart's exit "are false."
Since Stewart, who played Snow White in the film, and Rupert Sanders, the married, 41-year-old director of the film last month publically apologized for a tryst caught in photographs, the future of "Snow White" has been uncertain.
