It seems R. Patz isn't the only one taking Jon Stewart's advice to kick Kristen Stewart "to the curb."

After a whirlwind of drama, Universal has confirmed that Stewart will not be invited to reprise her role for the sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman." Instead, the studio has plans to focus on the Huntsman, played by an ax-wielding Chris Hemsworth.

As of now, details regarding the spinoff are unclear. The studio has shed writer David Koepp but "SWATH" director Rupert Sanders -- certainly sullied by scandal -- has yet to confirm his involvement in the film, though sources say he may return.

"The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise," a Universal spokeswoman told The Hollywood Reporter.

The franchise-to-be came to a screeching halt when Stewart and Sanders, married to Liberty Ross, were seen -- and photographed -- canoodling during production.

Stewart quickly issued a statement professing her love for her "Twilight" co-star and real life boyfriend, Robert Pattinson.

"This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."

UPDATE: According to the L.A. Times, the spinoff featuring the Hemworth's Huntsman is going forward "and that Stewart's Snow White could still be a character in that film, despite reports that suggested otherwise."
