After a highly publicized affair with the married director of the first film, Kristen Stewart will appear in the sequel for "Snow White and the Huntsman."
Stewart, 22, has confirmed that she is set to appear in the sequel to the film several months after having a "momentary indiscretion" with director Rupert Sanders.

Stewart made the announcement in an interview and admitted she was "excited" to be attached to the project again.
"I'm so excited about it, it's crazy," Stewart told Indie Wire. But when pressed for further details about the re-hire, she said could not reveal anything else.
"I'm not allowed [to talk about it]. The other day I said that there was a strong possibility that we're going to make a sequel, and that's very true, but everyone was like, 'Whoa, stop talking about it.' So no, I'm totally not allowed to talk about it."
There were rumors that Stewart had been dropped from the sequel after she and Sanders issued a public apology to their partners for the affair, but Universal denied those reports.
Meanwhile, Sanders will not be returning to the director's chair to helm the sequel, according to ComingSoon.net.
A report claims that after the very public affair between Stewart and Sanders, Universal had to decide who would be dropped from the second installment, the actress or the director.
"The script has already been written and production will begin late next year," a source told Radar Online in November.
The choice may have been easy for the film company. Sanders had decided to forgo working on the sequel so that he could put his time and energy into saving his marriage.
"However, Rupert Sanders definitely won't be a part of the project. Rupert didn't want to be a part of it to begin with because he is desperately still trying to save his marriage. The search is still on for a new director."
Sanders, 43, is married with two children to one of the "Snow White" stars who played Stewart's mother in the film, model Liberty Ross.
"Snow White and the Huntsman," which also starred Charlize Theron and Alex Hemsworth, has grossed over $396 million worldwide during its release in theaters.
Stewart's final "Twilight" film was released in November. Her latest movie, an indie, "On the Road," arrived in theaters on Friday, Dec.21.
The actress has also been confirmed to appear in an upcoming film, "Focus," with Ben Affleck.
