Rupert Sanders still might return for SWATH sequel

After news broke of Kristen Stewart being caught out in broad daylight cheating with Rupert Sanders, the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman, a lot of questions began circling around the movie community. Due to the fact that Universal had already given a sequel the green light after Snow White's impressive box office numbers and had hinted at Sanders returning to direct, along with Stewart to return as well, the main question was... will this even happen?

I highly doubt reuniting the two is a wise choice for both Sanders' marriage and/or Stewart's relationship status with Robert Pattinson. With that said, it has been hinted by numerous sources that Sanders and Stewart are both still slated to return for the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. There is no timetable for production and I doubt anyone has even worked on a script yet but it is still happening. HOWEVER, Stewart is bound by contract to return for sequels while Sanders is not. They could easily find another director and might choose to do so. For the sake of public appearances and making their employees comfortable, Universal might choose to replace him. Not to mention his wife, Liberty Ross, is apparently forbidding him from returning if he wants to keep his marriage intact. Bummer dude.
Regarding people questioning if the sequel is even going to happen I would say open your eyes. Universal isn't going to let this one get away. The film had a worldwide box office gross of $309,394,227. They probably think, like I do, that Stewart's fans will still show up at the movie theaters to see her movies despite them claiming to boycott her future projects because their Robsten fantasies were destroyed.

As you might be able to tell I am still finding this whole situation extremely hilarious. Forgive me.
