Apparently, cheating on your famous live-in boyfriend with your married director AND risking the future of—not one but TWO—film franchises (Twilight and Snow White), doesn’t stop you from getting work in Hollywood.
Or at least, it didn’t stop Kristen Stewart. It was announced that she’ll be starring in an indie adaptation of William Styron’s 1951 novel, Lie Down in Darkness (does the plot involve lying down in a MINI Cooper?)
The film will be directed by Crazy Heart‘s Scott Cooper. The part of “Peyton Loftis” was originally intended for Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence, but Kristen Stewart has taken her place. Hmmm… is Mr. Cooper hoping to get lucky?
Actually, it sounds like a simple scheduling issue—Jennifer Lawrence will be too busy shooting sequels for both Hunger Games and X-Men. Meanwhile, Kristen’s schedule seems to have magically opened up…now that doesn’t have to worry about shooting that Snow White sequel…
KStew’s character, Peyton Loftis, is part of a dysfunctional and disintegrating family; she’s constantly compared to her crippled sister, Maudie, and her intense physical beauty makes her the object of her frigid mother’s jealous hatred and the target of her father’s incestuous, alcoholic lust. Uh oh… more daddy issues to deal with.
