Kristen Stewart on Possible Next Project 'Lie Down the Darkness': It's Not Happening Yet

Kristen Stewart

'I think it's been said on the Internet that I'm doing 'Lie Down in Darkness'; it's not happening just yet,' so Kristen says, confirming that she hasn't secured any new film project post-'Twilight'.

Contrary to swirling reports that Kristen Stewart has officially snatched "Lie Down in Darkness" as her next project post-"Twilight Saga", the actress herself confessed that she still hadn't secured any new movie gig yet. Though so, she admitted to be happy for not being committed to any project so she could be free to pick her next film.

"It's been a little while since I haven't had stuff mapped out, so it's nice," she told MTV News. "I'm in a good place to choose." When asked about her involvement in "Lie Down the Darkness", Kristen responded, "I don't know yet."

"I know it's weird to skirt subjects. I think it's been said on the Internet that I'm doing 'Lie Down in Darkness'; it's not happening just yet," the Los Angeles native clarified the report. "I don't know when they're [going to officially green-light the film]. I love that thing, I would do anything to get that to go, but it's just not yet. Hopefully it does, but other than that, nothing."

Back in early August, Vulture reported that Kristen replaced Jennifer Lawrence who was originally tapped to tackle the lead role in "Lie Down in Darkness". The film itself is an adaptation of a 1951 William Styron novel, which is described as a Dickensian and Dostoyevsky-like heavy drama that charts the rise of a Southern family.

The family includes drunken patriach Milton Loftis, a frigid mother, as well as two daughters - one beautiful and the other a cripple. The father lusts after one of the aforementioned daughters. The drama is set to be directed and written by Scott Cooper.

Aside from talking about "Lie Down in Darkness", Kristen discussed her upcoming film "On the Road" which will soon hit the U.S. theaters. Recalling the hardest part to shoot in the Beat Generation-inspired drama, Kristen opened up that she was terrified to do the steamy "love dance" between her character and Garrett Hedlund's.

"We rehearsed in a lot. It just scared me so much," she recalled. "Me and Garrett would get together every weekend and dance to incredibly fast jazz music. And at first it was really embarrassing and ridiculous and horrible, let me tell you."

"On the Road" will open Stateside on December 21. Before that, Kristen will reprise her role as Bella in "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II" which is set to come out on November 16.

    Hey people....what about the kids whose lives have been hurt by Rupert and Kristen's affair??

    RS and KS are both to blame for their affair and will shoulder the consequences. Do not believe that the photos were staged as they were having a full-on affair. RP and KS wont get back together because he will never be able to trust her as she is such a phoney. Never want to see her petulant face in a movie again.

    I don't understand the obsession with these two.They are normal people if that is the kind of love you want find it and stop living through these two.She cheated and as much as people want to blame RS it was her choice,just like it was his choice to cheat on his wife.They are both grown and no one held a gun to either of their heads.As far as whether she and RP get back together if they do it won't change the state of the world for the better,if they don't it won't be the end of the world.I have heard people say it was a scam think about this if it was a PB stunt you have to ask yourselves how much these people really care about their fans if they would deceive them in that way for fame.I kind of hope they don't get back together not because I blame her or hate him.I don't know them but I wouldn't want them together because they have no chance at anything that resembles a normal relationship after this.They can try but it will never happen.If it wasn't a scam their relationship was so flawed that she cheated and if it was a scam they don't have this fairy tale romance that people have made it out to be.Either way people need to get over this and their obsession with these two because it is not now nor will it ever be the way you picture.Haven't you ever heard that fantasy is better than reality.That is what has been sold for the last 3 or 4 years a fantasy because if it was reality the scandal would have never had the chance to see the light of day because it wouldn't have happened.

    Ron & Kristen know what really happened. I don't understand it but the love that they share is rare and braitiful. I hate to think that Rob would leave after three years of such a special relationship with the love of his life.
