Kristen Stewart Not Against a Snow White and the Huntsman Franchise; Admits to Punching Chris Hemsworth in the Face
11.04.11 by Ryan
Kristen Stewart is primarily known for playing Bella in the Twilight Saga, but may end up in another movie franchise with her latest project, Snow White and the Huntsman.
The darker and more action-oriented of the two Snow White movies currently in production for a 2012 release, set photos from the Stewart's Snow White and the Huntsman have shown the actress sporting armor and brandishing a sword, s seemingly far cry from her work in Twilight. Case in point: during an interview on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (via EW), Stewart admitted that, during a scene from the movie, she was supposed to punch co-star Chris Hemsworth (Thor) in the face and, instead of missing, made full contact.
It made such a sound. It literally spun him right around. I was supposed to miss him by this much; I basically knocked him right out of his close-up. Just really good contact. I could hear the camera guys go, "whoah." It'll definitely be in the movie.
Between Twilight movies, Stewart has made an effort to star in image-shattering indie roles in movies like The Runaways and the upcoming On the Road, and while initially reticent, Stewart admitted to MTV that she wouldn't mind replacing Twilight with a Snow White franchise.
To be totally candid and honest with you, when I first signed on to this thing, the idea of doing another franchise was like, "Whoa. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it." It was something that was so far outside my realm of thinking. I was so focused on the first one, that I was like, "Yeah, maybe. Maybe." Now I've got stars in my eyes. I'm literally over the moon about what I'm doing right now. I can't imagine that I would say ["no"]. Yes, I would love to [do more Snow White movies].
While it would seem weird to think of a Snow White movie turning into a franchise, producer Joe Roth admitted in July that Snow White and the Huntsman is planned as the "first in a series of films."
