A few casting updates:

  • Ashley Greene is in talks to join Haley Bennett in Satanic (formerly known as Kristy), a horror movie about a group of college students who are attacked in their dormitory over Thanksgiving break.
  • Wendi McLendon-Covey is the first of four female leads to be cast by Tyler Perry for his next movie, Single Mom’s Club.
  • Kristen Stewart suggests “there’s a strong possibility” she will return for Snow White and the Huntsman 2.

Details after the jump.

Perry will write, direct, and likely star in Single Mom’s Club.  Per Variety, the story is set into motion by a school incident that brings together four single mothers: “They bond and create a support group that helps them find comedy in the obstacles of life, as well as their inner strength to overcome their personal challenges.”  McLendon-Covey will play a “snobbish book publisher wrestling with the decision to move up the corporate ladder or devote more time to raising her only daughter.”  Production begins later this month in Atlanta.  Single Mom’s Club will be the fifteenth movie that Perry has made with Lionsgate.

Universal is definitely moving forward with the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, which grossed nearly $500 million worldwide.  But the public consequences of the affair between Stewart and Huntsman director Rupert Sanders led to rumors that the sequel might drop Stewart’s Snow White and focus on Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman.  Universal was quick to deny that rumor, and Stewart is keeping her options open.  At the press junket for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, THR asked Stewart if she’s heard any updates on the Snow White sequel.  Stewart coyly responded:

“Maybe.  No one’s positive or anything, but I think there’s a strong possibility.”

We will keep tabs on this story as it develops.  In the meantime, watch the interview clip below and report back on any microexpressions you pick up on.

    yayayaya another mini coopering for me and my love Rup

    She slept with the director, she shouldn’t be allowed to come back for the sequel. The whore.

    • filmquack

      It was the director who betrayed his family and slept with a young actress half his age. Why do people always blame the woman, and call her a whore. The director should be kicked out of the production, not her. I don’t even particularly like Kristen Stewart as an actress, but your statement is absurdest and honestly quite sexist.

      She was not married and she was half his age. At worst she cheated on her boyfriend. He broke up his family and took advantage of a much younger actress.

    Uhhgg. Can just have “The Huntsman” and forget about Snow White? That first one was kickass Chris Hemsworth adventure movie until they shoved in the fairy tale angle and the mall chick.

      I actually thought the contrary and felt they kept the storyline pretty tight. If it was all just Thor wielding an axe, it woulda been too flat.

  • Jamesy

    I just don’t like Stewart on screen, every performance or movie she seems wooden? They could have hammerd some googly eyes onto a plank of wood for the Twilight movies and it would(wood,sorry) have been a better performance. SWATH was just so boring when she was on screen, it got so much better when Hemsworth came into it, Hemsworth as a drunken Scottish warrior who carries an axe. Could easily have spin off movies!
