K-Stew dropped from Snow White and the Huntsmen sequel
But can movies survive without the main character?
There appears to be a new Hollywood trend appearing: movies with the main character MIA.
Take the Bourne movies, for example. Jason Bourne was at the epicenter of the Bourne money-spinner, but this August Jeremy Renner is Bourne again as Aaron Cross – the new male lead.
Hurt Locker and Ghost Protocol's charismatic hardman Renner comes off the subs bench for Matt Damon as the super-spy franchise keeps free-running and gunning without Bourne’s presence.
And now it’s been announced Kristen Stewart will not be the main focus of the huge Snow White and the Huntsmen’s sequel – with rumours circulating she might not be in it at all.
After revealing her affair with SWATHM director, Rupert Sanders, it seems R-Patz isn’t all Kristen might’ve lost.
The 22-year-old played the lead character of Snow White in SWATHM, but Universal have said that the sequel will instead focus on the character of the Huntsman, played by Chris Hemsworth.
Oh K-Stew! It turns out Snow White isn’t such a fairy tale after all.
How long can this trend continue? What’s next – Batman without the masked hero himself? A Bond movie without 007 making an appearance? Jurassic Park without any dinosaurs?
What a preposterous thought. Let’s buck this trend, yeah Hollywood?
