Disgraced filmmaker Rupert Sanders has signed on to direct a new biopic about French military leader Napoleon Bonaparte. The Snow White and the Huntsman director has been hired by Warner Bros. executives to take charge of the project, titled Napoleon.
Sanders, who began his career as a commercials director, made his big screen debut with last year's (12) adaptation of the fairytale classic, which grossed more than $396 million worldwide.
He made headlines when he was caught romancing his leading lady Kristen Stewart. The affair ended his marriage to model/actress Liberty Ross.
Model and actress Liberty Ross reminded her cheating ex what he's missing when she stepped out on the red carpet at the MOCA Awards in Beverly Hills on Wednesday (06Nov13) wearing a see-through dress and no bra. The sexy star wowed photographers as she rocked a sheer black dress that left her breasts and nipples exposed and flaunted her body for the cameras.
Ross is now estranged from moviemaker husband Rupert Sanders, who was caught in a clinch with his Snow White & The Huntsman leading lady Kristen Stewart in a car park last year (12).
The mother-of-two recently opened up to Vanity Fair magazine about her husband's cheating scandal, revealing, "It was horrible. It was really the worst."
Ross filed for divorce from Sanders in January (13) and is currently dating music mogul Jimmy Iovine. She told Vanity Fair she feels she's currently experiencing a rebirth.
Model and actress Liberty Ross has opened up about her husband Rupert Sanders' 2012 fling with Kristen Stewart, revealing it was the worst ordeal to go through. Sanders was photographed kissing his Snow White & the Huntsman leading lady in a car park, prompting both him and the actress to come forward and own up about their secret romance.
The truth subsequently caused the break-up of his marriage and Stewart's relationship with Robert Pattinson.
Ross reveals she found out about the affair hours before the photographs were made public, telling Vanity Fair magazine, "It was horrible. It was really the worst. I have no words to describe what we went through. But I think, for me, something always has to completely die for there to be a rebirth. And I feel like I'm going through a rebirth."
She reveals she called on a friend to help her avoid the media storm following the publication of the kissing photos and her husband's confession, adding, "I was able to be there (friend's home) completely secluded. I tried to keep as far away from it as I could and to understand that this is my family and it's the most precious thing to me."
Ross admits Sanders wanted to reconcile, but she was not keen on the idea.
She explains, "I'm not a quitter. I've done everything I could to be the perfect wife and mother and really support my husband. But I just didn't have any more to give. We were together for 16 years, and that, in itself, is really beautiful. And we've created two exceptional lives (children) together."
Ross filed for divorce in January (13) and has been dating record executive Jimmy Iovine.
Stewart and Pattinson reconciled after the cheating scandal, but split for good earlier this year (13).
Kristen Stewart has struck up a romance with Boardwalk Empire actor Michael Pitt following her split from Robert Pattinson, according to a U.K. report. In May (13), reports suggested the Twlight stars had called off their relationship for good, less than a year after Stewart admitted to an "indiscretion" with director Rupert Sanders last July (12), and now the actress has been linked to Pitt.
Editors at Britain's The Sun report the pair met at Paris Fashion Week in France last month (Jun13) and became close.
A source tells the publication, "Kristen's not over Rob but she's getting there and Michael's helping her through it. She vowed to throw herself into work and be single this summer. But when she met Michael last week, they hit it off. They both hate the spotlight and are smart bookworm types."
Stewart issued a public apology to Pattinson after her involvement with Sanders was exposed last summer (12) and the pair was said to have reconciled. The ordeal ended Sanders' relationship with wife Liberty Ross.
Rupert Sanders, the filmmaker who wrecked his marriage to model/actress Liberty Ross by falling for Kristen Stewart on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman, has signed on to direct the movie adaptation of Frederick Forsyth's thriller The Kill List.
Twilight couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have called off their romance, according to a U.S. report. The Hollywood stars have decided to go their separate ways after three years of dating, reports People magazine.
The split news comes after Pattinson allegedly pulled out of celebrating his 27th birthday on 13 May (13) with Stewart, who is said to have planned a party for him.
Just days before the British hunk's birthday, the pair appeared to be going strong as they partied together after the Costume Institute Gala in New York on 8 May (13) and they also flew back to Los Angeles at each other's side on 8 May (13).
Their on/off relationship has been dogged by scandal - the actress stunned fans after admitting to an "indiscretion" with director Rupert Sanders last July (12). The ordeal ended Sanders' relationship with wife Liberty Ross and led Stewart to issue a public apology to Pattinson.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart proved their relationship is firmly back on track following last summer's (12) cheating scandal by attending California's Coachella Festival together on Saturday (13Apr13). The actress admitted to an "indiscretion" with director Rupert Sanders and the Twilight couple briefly split. The scandal ended Sanders' relationship with wife Liberty Ross, who has filed for divorce.

The 34-year-old mother-of-two is seen wearing nothing but long necklaces in an editorial shoot for Love magazine, while another black-and-white shot shows just her toned stomach and hip bones.
In an accompanying interview, Ross admits she is still adjusting to the increased attention following Sanders' "indiscretion" with actress Kristen Stewart last year (12).
She says, "It is very intense. I feel like recently I am finding out who I am."
The Brit also maintains she has no regrets about moving from her native England to Los Angeles so Sanders could pursue his filmmaking dreams.
She adds, "I felt it was time for him to have his turn. We both like it there and we were both established in what we did, but it felt like things could only excel for him in film in America. I wanted to have children and change my life in that way too. I'm glad I did it; I don't have any regrets."
After attempting to reconcile with the director, Ross began legal proceedings to end their marriage last month (Jan13).
The filmmaker was caught kissing Stewart, the lead star of his Snow White and the Huntsman film, in July (12) and subsequently issued a public statement apologising to his wife and children for "the pain I have caused my family".
Ross was briefly pictured without her wedding ring, but by September (12) the band was back on her finger amid reports the couple was working through its marital problems for the sake of its two kids.
However, the reconciliation has fallen through and Ross launched legal action in Los Angeles County Superior Court to end her marriage this week (ends25Jan13).
She has hired celebrity favourite Laura Wasser to represent her and has asked for joint custody of their daughter Skyla, five, and son Tennyson, seven, as well as spousal support and attorney's fees.
Sanders has already filed his response to the divorce - he is also requesting joint custody of the kids and is asking to split the legal costs with Ross. He is not asking for spousal support, reports TMZ.com.
In contrast, Stewart's love life seems to be back on track - her Twilight co-star and boyfriend Robert Pattinson appears to have forgiven her for her momentary "indiscretion" with Sanders and they reunited in October (12).
