Sources close to the project told TheWrap the Twilight actress isn't likely to be in the film, which Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont is in talks to direct.
Snow White and the Huntsman 2 is expected to focus on the huntsman, played by Chris Hemsworth, and if Stewart does appear in the film, it would only a small role, the source said.
Charlize Theron is also on tap to return to her role as the evil queen.
Controversy surrounded the original film in 2012 after Sanders and Stewart were photographed getting a little more cozy than one would expect for an actress and her director, especially considering they each had significant others at the time.
