The 'Twilight' actress is set to play a female soldier in 'Camp X-Ray' and act opposite Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz in 'Sils Maria'.
Kristen Stewart heads to indie movies next. After starring in the last installment of the "Twilight" film franchise, the young Hollywood actress is attached to two projects, "Camp X-Ray" and "Sils Maria". Peter Sattler will direct her in the first film, which is also penned by him. As for the latter, Olivier Assayas will serve behind the lens.
As reported by Deadline, "Camp X-Ray" will feature Stewart as a young soldier who is sent to Guantanamo for a tour of duty instead of Iraq as she hoped. There, she develops an awkward relationship with a young man who has been in jail at Gitmo for eight years. Starting filming late summer, the pic will be produced by Gina Kwon and Sophia Lin.
In "Sils Maria", Stewart will join forces with Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz. The 23-year-old star is introduced as an assistant to Binoche's character, an actress who is obsessed with young actress (Moretz) playing the role that made the older actress' name rise to stardom. The title itself refers to the Swiss setting. The production is slated to begin this summer in Europe.
Besides those two, Stewart is committed to two other productions. The Bella Swan depicter will act opposite Jim Sturgess in upcoming comedy "The Big Shoe", and reprise her role as Snow White respectively in "Snow White and the Huntsman Sequel".
