Kristen Stewart signs up for a new movie in wake of ‘affair’ scandal..
They say that it’s better to keep busy in times of trouble and no doubt Kristen Stewart needs a few new projects to occupy her mind. Luckily she has got a new role in ‘Lie Down in Darkness.’
The actress will play the suicidal Peyton Loftis in the film adaptation of William Styron’s novel, according to New York Magazine.
Stewart first expressed interest in the project in May, describing the part of Peyton as her ideal role.
Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence previously spoke about her desire to play Peyton in an interview with W Magazine.
“I am obsessed with that part,” she said. “I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play.
“I worry about them – if someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right; they’ll make the character a victim or they’ll make her a villain or they’ll just get it wrong somehow.”
Unfortunately for Lawrence (or fortunately) she will be busy working on the Hunger Games and the X Men franchises.
