November 17, 2010 04:14:56 GMT


The remake of Pascal Laugier's "Martyrs" is moving forward with Daniel Stamm hired to serve behind the lens, but Kristen Stewart will not be involved in the project. In an interview with Los Angeles Times, the filmmaker denied that the "Twilight" beauty will star in the American version.
