SWATH screenwriter David Koepp on SWATH 2: 'I Couldn't' See Sequel Being Made Without Kristen Stewart


David Koepp couldn't envision a Snow White and the Huntsman sequel without Kristen Stewart — which is one reason he says he's no longer involved in the project.

Koepp — who scripted Jurassic Park, the original 2002 Spider-Man movie and co-wrote and directed this weekend's new bike-messenger thriller Premium Rush — told Movieline that he departed the project because he had worked on a script idea "that I really liked" involving Stewart's character. "And their situation, I hear, changed a little, so they weren't interested in pursuing that idea anymore."

Koepp said that was a sign for him to move on. "I felt like there was a good path with her, but then they wanted to explore a different thing that I had no ideas for," he explained. "If you don't have any ideas, you should probably put your pen in your backpack and go home." As a result, he added, "we agreed to part ways and stay friends."

When I asked Koepp if he could see a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman being made sans Stewart, he replied: "Well, I couldn't. That was why I felt like I couldn't follow through."

Stewart's involvement in a Snow White sequel has been hotly debated since reports broke in late July that she cheated on her on- and 0ff-screen Twilight love interest Robert Pattinson with SWATH director Rupert Sanders and apologized for it.

On Aug. 15, Deadline reported that, internally, Universal is discussing whether to focus the next movie on the Huntsman character played by Chris Hemsworth, who is fast proving himself to be leading-man material. Universal also bought a crime drama called 90 Church: The True Story of the Narcotics Squad from Hell for Sanders.

If Kristen Stewart isn't going to be in the next movie i don't think there should be another movie if they do go in the diction of the huntsman i'm  afraid it wont be as good or you will fill like there's something missing and it wouldn't be the same i don't get why Rupert Sanders is staying but KStew could be out to me it doesn't  mater to me  who is involved in the behind the scene stuff as long as there good like when twilight saga has different director or other people doesn't  faze me one bit

Aside form all the personal turmoil, this is the other thing which gets me most upset.  I though Kristen did a great job in SWATH and was really looking forward to seeing her in a sequel.  I mean if anything there should be a new director and not a new star.

Honestly, the ONLY reason i even saw SWATH was because of Kristen.
