Kristen Stewart will reprise her lead role in the “Snow White and the Huntsman” sequel, the head of Universal Pictures confirmed Tuesday.

Stewart plays the lead role of Snow White in the film. Though few details are known about the latest project, it will be in theaters in 2015.

The first movie received two Oscar nominations for Best Visual Effects and Best Costume Design at the 85th Academy Awards.

The director of the first movie is not coming back, however. Stewart had an affair with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders while she was in a relationship with “Twilight” co-star Pattinson last summer, and it was unclear whether Stewart and the “Cosmopolis” actor would reconcile.

Some actors came to Stewart’s defense after the incident, such as Jodie Foster, who played her mother in the 2002 film "Panic Room."

"If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don't think I could survive it emotionally. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety," said Foster, whose own movie career began in childhood, in an essay defending the young actress.

Stewart and Pattinson have since been seen hanging out together.

Model Liberty Ross, who was married to Sanders at the time, has filed for divorce. The pair married in 2002 and have two children together.
