Twilight Star – Kristen Stewart is set to play the leading role in a new drama by Scott Cooper called Lie Down in Darkness.
Based on William Styron’s 1951 novel, the eventual film will feature Stewart as Peyton Loftis, a young woman dealing with the disintegration of her dysfunctional family. Not only is she constantly compared to her crippled sister, she’s also the source of jealousy for her cold, bitter mother and the target of alcohol-fuelled, incestuous lust by her father.
No start date has been announced for the movie.
Stewart can be seen later this year reprising her role as Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 and as Marylou in Walter Salles’ On the Road.
