Rupert Sanders is Not the 'Snow White and the Huntsman' Sequel Director!

Rupert Sanders and his daughter Skyla grab a few groceries at a supermarket on Friday (November 23) in Malibu, Calf.

When the 41-year-old director headed back to his car, he found a note on his windshield from a local citizen, who had accidentally hit his car in the rear.

child molestor!

New family for Kstew to f… up?

# 6

I saw SW and H on dvd recently. I felt it ripped off LOTR in feeling and detail/design. The action scenes and the forest scenes esp. I think they had similar staff working ont he projec though. WETA etc.

# 7

It was nothing but a publicity stunt. They got what they wanted, the movie is massive at the box office. all four of them are nothing but pathetic human beings.

# 8

Poor poor cry cry . I Hope he learned from his mistakes and get another job for the family sake and all of them put this behined them now.

# 9

I do not think anyone in the World actually cares what this a**hole does!

Slimeball. Will never understand how a grown adult can screw over his wife and children, for a quick piece of stupid a$$. Especially Stewart. He has to be the world’s biggest idiot.

Please no more pics of this loser. Let him fade back in to obscurity where he belongs!!!!!!!

Horrible man. Sexual Predator preying on a young girl who he was in a position of power over. He makes me sick. Never will watch a movie of his. Ever.

@Jess: Kristen is a A-list actress, Rupert is a first time director….Kristen seduced him…Rob was not satisfying her

ASIANS REALLY CAN READ MINDS!! @ 11/23/2012 at 10:41 pm

These two links show that a very large amount of people know that Asians can read minds now!!!!!
.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD THAT ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!

Disgusting Pig.

That’s too bad, I thought he did a good job directing this film. It would have been better for them to replace Stewart since her acting in the film was just OK. Oh well, I guess since she was on-screen they can’t replace the main character that easily….

He looks so smug and smarmy. I’d say he has pounced on some young girl before and he’ll do it again. Old creepy pervert.

HAAHHAHAHAH I love that this Manipulating Pig got what was coming for him!
He is the older man who manipulated a young girl and almost destroyed his OWN family.

@any: That’s so wrong. Calling him a pig is one thing but he didn’t molest a child. Kristen was a willing 22 year old adult. How insensitive to any child who really was molested! Seriously what is wrong with you??

Kristen would be a good mom to Rupert’s kids

That poor child has a pervert for a father

And how is it Kristen’s fans call Rupert a pig, scumbag and slimball for cheating (which he is) but defend Kristen when she did the same thing? Doesn’t make much sense.

@Billie: How is he a pervert for having a affair with a sexy actress?

Who cares?? Irrelevant man

Karma’s a *****! Ruperv! That’s what you get. Applause to the person who hit your car.

@sarah: Im not deffending the fact that she did something wrong. Im not even one of her ‘fans’ but the truth of the matter is that she was crusifieyed or doing something while this man got basically nothing.
He is an older man with a family to lose. Not saying she was innocent but you tell me that he did the most wrong by going home to his WIFE and KIDS after sleeping with her. Whereas she is 20 yr old who made a mistake and is now back with her BF. You are going to make mistakes too.

KS the Cheater @ 11/23/2012 at 11:09 pm

He loses a director’s gig because Stewart was in heat?! Besides the world needs another ridiculous franchise with this horrible excuse of an actress?!

Its a shame that Snow White brought out such a relationship between Rupert and Kristen. He did such a good job with the Snow White and the Huntsman. Personally though, I don’t think there needs to be a sequel.

Rupert is sexy and Kristen is sexy…they are sole mates

Both Stewart and Sanders should have been bounced from SWATH 2 since BOTH brought scandal to the production. Universal saw the box office for Breaking Dawn 2 and thought it is safe to re-hire Kristen. But judging from the In Touch Weekly cover, her “trampire” status is not going to go away any time soon. I feel sorry for the director they will eventually hire for SWATH 2. Thanks to her, his work history is not going to be examined; it will be his MARTIAL history. If there were any bumps in this director’s marriage they will be reported. Since In Touch is taking bets that Kristen is going to step out on Rob again with the very married with three children director of Focus, Ben Affleck; stories are going to fly she’s creeping with this guy. Dollar bet there is going to be a story that Universal is having a tough time hiring a director because the women of Hollywood don’t want their husbands and boyfriends working with Kristen. And because he chose to take her back, Rob is going to have to live with the headlines too, being constantly reminded that she cheated on him.

Here’s

@Creed: She was ‘crucified’ because she’s famous and he wasn’t. She also has an army of fans defending her and crucifying him. Rupert had no fans to disappoint or come to his defense. Also, many media outlets have defended and excused her with the same lousy “she’s young” defense you’re using. I’m 27 and I knew better than to sleep with a married man then go home to my bf. Somehow Rupert’s a pig for cheating but Kristen’s cheating is just a mistake. It’s sexist and biased. They’re either both cheating pigs or they’re both not.

enoughalready @ 11/23/2012 at 11:27 pm

I wonder if Kristen’s broken finger was bad karma for what she did to Liberty? And didn’t her cat die recently? Maybe that was bad kama for what she did to Liberty’s kids? Is that how karma works?

@sarah: ****-shaming.

@PRESIDENT-ELECT-ROMNEY: This guy sucked Kristen’s tits in the minicooper

THERE’S A DIFERENCE “”"”"”"”"”"‘HE IS A FATHER….. AND A HUSBAND”"”"”"”"”"”"”"

enoughalready @ 11/24/2012 at 12:29 am

@rossana: Exactly. Any girl with half a brain and a sliver of conscience knows enough not to sleep with one. You don’t befriend a woman and her children then mess with her man behind her back.

@Okay: there was whole lot of sucking going around…and I’m not talking about Kristen’s acting

Both him and Stewart are scumbags

RUPSTEN IS UNBROKEN! @ 11/24/2012 at 2:01 am

THIS IS JUST SO TRAGIC!!!! A 22 YEARS OLD KID NAMED KRISTEN STEWART WAS FORCED TO END HER PASSIONATE AFFAIR WITH HOT RUPIE AFTER THEY WERE CAUGHT ON CAMERA :( POOR KRISTEN WAS FORCED TO ISSUE AN APOLOGY AND GO BACK TO HER EUNUCH BOYFRIEND TO SAVE HER RUPIE APPROVED A$$.HOT RUPIE IS MORE OF MAN THAN ROBERTA CAN EVER BE.RUPIE TOOK THE RISK OF MEETING HIS LOVE AND SUCKED HER TATAS AND THEN LOVINGLY DRY HUMPED IN BROAD DAYLIGHT!!!!!!!!!!! THAT’S CAUSE HE IS MAN WHEREAS ROBERTA DOESN’T EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE HER AS HIS GF.THERE IS NO PLACE FOR TRUE LOVE IN THIS WORLD :( :( :(

he did such wonderderful job with SWATH . shame he got misled by Kscrew and has lost out on a big gig !! the S*** is getting rewarded and the poor man has to take all the s***.

Fantastic news! Hope they’ll get a new actress for the Snow White too, the first one was such a wrong cast.

Happy_Evil_Dude @ 11/24/2012 at 5:01 am

Well that wasn’t a surprise

aquarius64 @ 11/24/2012 at 5:44 am

Here’s what’s worse. Kristen and her team put out so many stories of how Rupert took advantage of her (they are both equally guilty). Rupert didn’t fight back because, most likely, he wanted back on SWATH2 and he didn’t want to rock the boat and ruin his chances. Working on a big franchise puts him on a A-list track. Now that the gig is gone he probably feels he has nothing to lose. He may go on the record and tell how the “momentary indiscretion” got started. And if his marriage is on track for divorce, despite public reports of counseling and PDA between him and Liberty, he could confess to a sexual relationship between him and Kristen. God help Kristen if that happened, especially if it’s back up with photos and video. She can say goodbye to Rob and her career.

the KStew’s real love.

If he’s a pig ,Stew’ is a dirty W-h-o-r-e

@PRESIDENT-ELECT-ROMNEY: A-list actress ???? hahahahahaha she’s jobless, a part their psycho and sexually frustrated fans nobody wants her. She’s done ,

@Billie: And your precious Rob is in love with a s-l-u-t, who’s is doing better?

i am pissed off that Sanders got to hide away while Kristen got so much **** but calling him all these names is just pathetic. Yeah he was majorly stupid and even creepy to do that to his wife but whatever it’s his business. I love how internet commenters think they are angels while slamming actors etc. This story came from Radar so it’s made up anyway!!

I think that he is a pretty sexy man!

an opinion @ 11/24/2012 at 10:33 am

@monica: He does look smug. Which is probably why Kristen was attracted to him. She is smug also.

Well this is not fair…they should both be in the movie or none of them!! Anyway i am still watching the movie ONLY FOR CHRIS HEMSWORTH!!!!

@aquarius64: There is some truth here. Rupert and Liberty are ‘behaving” because they know that while the studios don’t balk at an affair, the will not tolerate erratic, indiscreet behavior. They will not be allowed to interfere with the massive pr campaign salvaging Kirsten’s image. Liberty’s brother was immediately silenced. Rupert has been surprisingly quiet, hasn’t he? Has said little to defend himself? A few leaks to Radar Online is all. In return for good behavior Rupert will be given the sort of scripts he genuinely favors – the crime film, the sci fi film, perhaps the war film so dear to his heart. He was much more willing to sacrifice Swath than most imagine. His Swath script is another matter. Neither Rupert nor Liberty will be allowed to tell the truth unless and until the studios abandon Kristen.

I’ll add that there is far greater disappointment in HW over the damage done to Rupert’s career than that done to Kristen’s. The fear in HW has long been that Kristen’s Twilight success will not crossover to other films. Swath’s numbers look good to the untrained eye, but the studios were letdown. She was expected to draw in near twice the numbers. For what it was, it did well. For a first time director, it did very well. For a big budget Stewart film, it did poorly. Stewart fancies herself a serious actress and wants to concentrate on indies and ‘difficult’ projects (eg Cali) They’ll give her those as long as the mainstream blockbusters make good money. otherwise she’s not worth the considerably high risk. There was much more faith in Rupert’s longterm career than there was in Kristen’s. High risk is worth it only if the actor can bring the goods – young Jolie for example. Kristen simply doesn’t have the chops.

I hope rupig, ksl*t and ksl*t pr team will get the karma soon

You go Kristen, they wanted to make a sequel without you so you flipped the script and got him axed. Now there will be sequel with you.

The problem with KStew is that by herself she really can’t sell a movie. She’s a terrible interview, not articulate and just not likable. They would have been better to keep the director because he did a really good job. I don’t think she is extraordinarily talented…but she is better with strong direction. The numbers will be down on the sequel. Watch and see.

If Liberty divorces him Kristen will be ruined in every sense. I don’t know why but I feel that this d-bag is kiss & tell kinda guy.He may start talking about his affair openly since he doesn’t have a wife to answer to & it will ensure that he gets a lot of attention. He may even shift the whole blame on Kristen & say that she seduced him but still I’m not gonna feel sorry for her. She knew what she was getting into when she hooked up with a married guy.

Trudy Garner @ 11/24/2012 at 4:17 pm

SWATH 2 should be called ‘Snow h-e & the C–tsman’ & Chris Hemsworth’s wife should be on set all the time.Kristen mentioned his baby girl few times during SWATH promo and everybody knows that when Kstew starts paying attention to your.kids she is actually planning to sleep with their dad.Just ask Liberty!

Good now all they need to do is replace Snow white otherwise this movie will bomb at BO

Fact checker @ 11/24/2012 at 5:05 pm

Stop with the false information! They did NOT have sex, though I’m sure some of you really wish they did!

doh @ 11/23/2012 at 10:34 pm

I wouldn’t say the profits from this movie was massive. It cost 170 million to make and that doesn’t include the millions spent on advertising and promoting the movie. It did decent, but it wasn’t massive. Stewart alone would not have carried this movie. Thanks to Theron and Hemsworth, it did as well as it did. None of Stewart’s movies outside of Twilight, which had a built in fan base because of the books, did well at the box office.
-
As to the movie itself, it was a freaking bait and switch. She was suppose to be the warrior, but didn’t do anything other than duck a couple of blades. She wasn’t even trained to fight. The screen play was horrible and she had little to say. Theron and Hemsworth were the best thing about the movie. They used Stewart to try to pull in the twilight fans, but it didn’t work. Had it worked the movie would have made much more money. Theron and Hemsworth do have their own fans who no doubt supported them in this movie.

aquarius64 @ 11/24/2012 at 6:39 pm

@Fact checker: “They did NOT have sex”? You know that for sure because Kristen said so? I sure she told Rob she’s faithful to him but the 50 pics on the internet prove otherwise. Thanks to the snaps of shame Kristen and Rupert have NO CREDIBILITY when they claim there was no sex. Rupert’s marriage and Kristen’s relationship with Rob (as well as her career) were on the line so of course they are going to DENY, DENY, DENY!

@Jess:

both are a scum and shes a ****.

Talk about ******** yourself out of a job ;-)

If the casting couches could talk…the stories they would tell

Rupert’s and Kristen’s sex tape is coming.
