There's been a lot of Kristen Stewart buzz lately. From the actress not back for a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman to new photos from the underwhelming Sundance drama Camp X-Ray, she's certainly been making headlines lately. Now we get to see more of the actress still putting effort into lower profile efforts with a new international trailer for Clouds of Sils Maria, the film which premiered at Cannes in May along with the first trailer from the festival. This new trailer shows more story and displays a promising turn for Stewart alongside Juliette Binoche (Godzilla). We're certainly curious to see more. Watch now! Here's the new international trailer for Clouds of Sils Maria from YouTube: Clouds of Sils Maria is written and directed by Olivier Assayas. At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play »

Remember the days when G.I. Joe 3 had a writing and directing team in place, and wasn’t just drifting through production limbo like so much blockbusting flotsam? Not too long ago, Paramount had Jon M. Chu locked in to continue steering the Joe ship (following his efforts on G.I. Joe: Retaliation), and with Snow White and the Huntsman screenwriter Evan Daugherty putting pen to paper on the new film’s script; they made a fine franchising combo in the abstract. If nothing else, they put the movie on rails.
But then Chu got caught up with directing an update on 80s cartoon Jem and the Holograms. At the time, this didn’t strike anyone as problematic, per se – the announcement came ...

When asked by ScreenCrush if the "G.I. Joe" franchise was in trouble following the decent, if not quite exceptional $375 million worldwide take for "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" (only about $70 million more than its predecessor), producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura was candid: "I think the studio was very unsure about it. Look, you always wonder until they say yes, really," he said. Well, it looks like they're saying yes. With a 2016 date now eyed by Paramount, Variety reports that Jonathan Lemkin ("Shooter," "The Devil's Advocate") has been tasked to write the script. He presumably takes over for Evan Daughtery ("Snow White And The Huntsman") who was hired last fall, and we'd wager this screenplay will be the bait to snag a new director, as John Chu is not expected to return. That said, di Bonaventura is promising big, big things. "I honestly believe we have one of the best ideas we have ever come across for a sequel. »

The upcoming G.I. Joe 3 has been riding on rocky road ever since director Jon Chu decided to take a personal detour and go make Jem and The Holograms. Paramount, however, has no interest in hitting the pause button on one of their biggest franchises. Hence, the studio has just signed a deal with a new screenwriter to work on the sequel's script. Variety was the first to report the news, saying that the G.I. Joe 3 writing duties are being handed over to Jonathan Lemkin. We've previously heard that the studio was bringing in Snow White and the Huntsman scribe Evan Daugherty for the gig, but this new story makes it seem like Lemkin will be working with a clean slate - minus what the studio and toy companies already have in mind, of course. As we learned last week, the plan is to have Dwayne Johnson return as »

Snow White and the Huntsman made a ton of money. And like most films that make a ton of money (say, a certain bot-morphing franchise with a new sequel this weekend), it’s mostly immune to criticism. No one cares about sagging reviews when your film just brought in the Gdp of a small country. But there’s some kind of criticism that will sink your film-Titanic: a star that’s poison in the tabloids. It’s why Mel Gibson is just now crawling his way back into an Expendables role after all those racial slur incidents a few years back. And Snow White and the Huntsman is no stranger to this kind of low controversy. You may remember that in 2012 star Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders were caught in a love affair, kindled by the fires of British actors digitally altered to look like dwarves. What you might not remember is the tangled mass of »

"Sometimes the world doesn't need another hero... Sometimes what it needs is a monster." Universal has finally unveiled the full official Us trailer for Gary Shore's Dracula Untold, which we first released earlier in the week before it was pulled down by the studio. Luke Evans stars as Vlad the Impaler in this origin story of Dracula, set back in the 1400s following a man who must defend his family. Its been referenced before, but this basically looks like Snow White and the Huntsman meets Underworld, something like that. The VFX are okay, but nothing spectacular, and overall I'm not that impressed. Give it a closer look below. Here's the new Us trailer for Gary Shore's Dracula Untold, in high def from Apple: Dracula Untold is directed by newcomer Gary Shore, making his feature debut after a 2005 horror short film titled The Draft. The story follows real-life historical figure Prince Vlad of Transylvania, »

I love the films of Frank Darabont. The guy knows how to tell an amazing story. I'm just not sure about this possible next project of his. THR is reporting the the director is currently in talks with Universal Pictures to direct a movie called The Huntsman, which is described as a spin-off movie of Snow White and The Huntsman. Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are expected to reprise their roles in the film. Kristin Stewart however will not be coming back, and I can't see anyone complaining about that.
The only thing I liked about the first movie was Theron's performance. She was awesome, but the film itself as a whole was terribly disappointing. I was so unimpressed that I have no interest in seeing another film set in that world. Even with Darabont directing, the idea of it still doesn't do anything for me. It seems like one »

Kristen Stewart is reportedly out as the female lead of Snow White and the Huntsman 2.
Though Kristen Stewart previously confirmed that there would indeed be a Snow White and the Huntsman sequel and that she was "excited" about it, according to The Wrap, the Twilight star is not expected to return as the female lead.
Also reportedly out?
According to The Wrap, Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont is in talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2, which is expected to emphasize Chris Hemsworth's role as the Huntsman. If Stewart does return, it would most likely be "limited to a cameo" or a "handful of brief scenes."
However, Charlize Theron is expected to reprise her role as the evil queen.
"Oh, it's gonna be f***in' amazing. No, I'm so excited about it, it's crazy," Stewart »
Kristen Stewart fans look away now – the actress, who played the lead in 2012’s Snow White And The Huntsman, will not be returning for the sequel. This rather large shake-up has been revealed amidst claims that the creators have chosen to go down the spin-off route rather than the sequel road.
Although Stewart is no longer attached both Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron will be reprising their roles from the original. The spin-off will see Hemsworth’s Huntsman take over protagonist duties with director Frank Darabont thought to be very close to signing up for the project. If he does agree to helm the project this would be his first feature film since 2007’s The Mist (has it really been that long?).
Snow White And The Huntsman wasn’t necessarily a bad film; a little overlong and whilst fully capable within the realm of indie projects Stewart didn’t really »

People aren’t perfect—and famous people are no exception. Every now and again, an actress will utter an insulting slur. An actor will get caught in a sex scandal. A politician won’t be able to keep it in his pants. Things happen. And yet, as Gary Oldman discovered this week, being in the spotlight means having to ‘fess up about your lesser moments in the court of public opinion. The public mea culpa has become a form of performance art (and not just because Shia Labeouf once tried to turn it into actual performance art).

While it remains that Kristen Stewart isn't expected to return as the lead in Snow White and the Huntsman 2, it's now being reported that The Walking Dead's creator, Frank Darabont, will direct said sequel.
According to TheWrap, Darabont is in early talk to direct Swath 2. Universal Pictures and producer Joe Roth are very interested in Darabont's take on the sequel/spinoff, but they have yet to make him an official offer. Gavin O'Connor (Warrior) and Andy Muschietti (Mama) were on the shortlist of directors who were considered for the gig.
As for Stewart–she's not expected to return. The film will focus more on Chris Hemsworth's huntsman. But given that the script isn't finalized yet, we could see Stewart make a brief cameo or appear in a handful of scenes.

The 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman was a success for Universal Pictures, and took home a healthy $396 million at the box office. A sequel was quickly greenlit, but then star Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders were caught in a bit of a sex scandal that derailed things for a bit. Sanders was quickly fired from the follow-up, but the studio emphatically claimed that Stewart would remain in the titular role.
Well, according to THR, the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel will apparently focus solely on the Huntsman, played by Chris Hemsworth, and The Walking Dead executive producer Frank Darabont is in talks to direct.
The film is simply titled The Huntsman, and is described as a spin-off of the first movie. No other details are given, but it sounds like Darabont beat Warrior director Gavin O’Connor for the directing job. Now that two years have passed since the first film arrived, »

Director Frank Darabont might have lost his TV show “The Walking Dead” to the suits at AMC and saw his latest TV show “Mob City” go down in flames at TNT, but that doesn’t mean he’s down for the count. The director of “The Mist” and 400 other movies based on a Stephen Kong story is now getting behind Universal’s Snow White, with the trades reporting that Darabont is in talks to helm a sequel to the surprise hit fantasy film “Snow White and the Huntsman.” That 2012 film was directed by Rupert Sanders and went on to earn almost $400 million worldwide, including over $150 million stateside. It starred “Twilight’s” Kristen Stewart as the titular Snow White, who ran afoul of evil queen Charlize Theron. Chris Hemsworth played the Huntsman of the title, who comes to the damsel in distress’s rescue. The whole thing was actually entertaining, even »
