"[Liberty] just doesn't want him to ever work with Kristen again," a source tells RadarOnline. "Rupert is obviously disappointed because 'Snow White and the Huntsman' was his directorial debut, and he had hoped on building on that with a follow-up after some decent reviews. But he knows his actions were inexcusable, and he's going to have to bite the bullet and listen to his wife on this one."
The source adds, "Kristen, as the film's lead, will get preference over Rupert and Universal will just find another director."
Meanwhile, Stewart and her boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, are reportedly back on speaking terms. Pattinson had previously been ignoring her "tearful texts" and "multiple phone calls."
