Rupert Sanders' wife 'against Snow White sequel'

Liberty Ross and Rupert Sanders

Rupert Sanders' wife has reportedly asked him not to direct the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel.

Rupert has admitted having an affair with Kristen Stewart, who he directed in the first film.

His wife Liberty Ross has apparently asked him not to be involved with the next release in a desperate bid to save their marriage and for the sake of their two children.

"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," a source revealed to Radar Online.

"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."

Kristen's boyfriend Robert Pattinson is said to be hiding out at former co-star and friend Reese Witherspoon's California Ranch in the wake of the scandal.

After the news was made public, Kristen apologised to her beau in a statement but he hasn't been seen since.

There has been speculation that the promotion of the final Twilight movie Breaking Dawn - Part 2, which Robert and Kirsten both star in, could be affected.

It is due out in November and the studio which made the movie insists nothing has changed.

"While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead and looking forward to this November's opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," worldwide president of marketing for Summit Nancy Kirkpatrick said. "We are confident that the film delivers amazing entertainment for our passionate fans and general audiences alike."
