RUPERT Sanders has been banned from directing Snow White and the Huntsman 2 — by his poor, cheated wife, Liberty Ross.
Ross has warned the 41-year-old — who was lined up to return to the helm for the sequel — to stay away if he wants to save their marriage following the revelation he cheated on her with the film’s star Kristen Stewart.
“Liberty let it be known in no uncertain terms that Rupert can’t direct the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman,” a source said.
“They are trying to work things out after he was caught having an affair, and that is one of the sticking points. She just doesn’t want him to ever work with Kristen again.
“Rupert is obviously disappointed because ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ was his directorial debut, and he had hoped on building on that with a follow-up after some decent reviews.
“But he knows his actions were inexcusable, and he’s going to have to bite the bullet and listen to his wife on this one.
“When Rupert signed up for Snow White and the Huntsman, he didn’t know he was going to get a chance to direct a sequel. His contract with Universal was only for one movie. It was a verbal agreement that he was to take the reigns on the sequel, nothing was ever signed.
“Kristen, as the film’s lead, will get preference over Rupert and Universal will just find another director.”
