Kristen Stewart can get off Monster.com now. The actress is no longer without a job.

Sources tell Radar Online that the actress has signed on to reprise her role as the title character in a Snow White and the Huntsman sequel - one that will NOT feature Rupert Sanders behind the camera.

Scowling Kristen Stewart

"The script has already been written and production will begin late next year," a source says of the film. "However, Rupert Sanders definitely won't be a part of the project. Rupert didn't want to be a part of it because he is desperately still trying to save his marriage. The search is still on for a new director."

In case you've been living under a rock without Internet access for the past six months, Stewart admitted to an affair with Sanders earlier this year.

The scandal affected both The Twilight Saga and plans for a Snow White sequel, though the storm has mostly passed now.

Kristen is apparently back with Robert Pattinson; Breaking Dawn Part 2 fared well at the box office; and now this sequel appears to be full steam ahead.
