Kristen Gets More Competition

Posted in Breaking Dawn, Movies with tags on May 8, 2010 by chasingcullens

Oh dear; Kristen Stewart is going to have to do a lot more than bite her lower lip and look lovelorn if she wants to land the lead in The Girl WIth the Dragon Tattoo.

As reported earlier, the Eclipse beauty is said to be in competition with An Education‘s Carey Mulligan for the part of bisexual computer hacker Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming adaptation of the Swedish hit. And now it appears that K-Stew will have to beat out a formidable list of A-list actresses if she wants the role. Anne Hathaway, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman are now also in contention for the movie, in which Salander teams up with a washed-up journalist to solve a disappearance case.

Director David Fincher is currently weighing the casting options, and is “not sure if he wants to go with an actress of any note or go with an unknown.” According to a movie insider,

“David’s process is very specific and private. He’s looking for authenticity and a degree of fierceness and believability capable of delivering the intensity that the part on the page calls for.”

Also working against Stewart: The timing and logistics of the production. Filming is currently expected to begin in October—about the time that Stewart will likely be filming the Twilight series’ Breaking Dawn. And since The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will likely be lensed in Sweden and other foreign countries, hopping from set to set would be quite the challenge for Stewart, who’s also scheduled to film the big-screen adaptation of classic Beat Generation novel On the Road this summer.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s Bella Swan and Edward Cullen of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse are the most anticipated summer movie couple according to a recently released Fandango poll. Stewart and Pattinson nabbed more than one in four votes. I’m sure no one is surprised, though Team Jacob members might be disappointed. Or perhaps not.

Kristen Stewart Goes On The Road

Posted in Movies with tags on May 6, 2010 by chasingcullens

Continuing to line up role after role, Kristen Stewart has announced that she’ll be starring in a film called “On the Road”.

Set to start shooting this summer, the “Twilight” cutie made the news known while in Chicago on Wednesday (May 5) taping “The Oprah Winfrey Show” as part of her “Eclipse” promotions.

As for Miss Stewart’s new gig, “On the Road” is an adaptation from Jack Kerouac’s 1957 novel of the same name.

Talking to USA Today, Kristen said of the project, “I am very much attached to a movie that has been trying to get made forever. Not that this is going to help it, but maybe I can just brag a little bit. I am super excited about it, too. I am about to play Marylou in On the Road. So that’s a big deal.”

The 20-year-old actress will be playing the young wife of Dean Moriarity (played by Garrett Hedland) while Walter Salles will direct.


Kristen Embraces Elle

The countdown to “Eclipse” has begun! Kristen Stewart is on the June cover of Elle. As usual, she looks gorgeous… and as usual, she still won’t talk about her personal relationships.

When asked if she’s dating Robert Pattinson, she tells the mag, “I would never cheapen my relationships by talking about them. People say, ‘Just say who you’re dating. Then people will stop being so ravenous about it.’ It’s like, No they won’t! They’ll ask for specifics.”

Stewart may not want to dish about her love life, but she did open up about the frustrations associated with her rise to fame. “Somebody knocked on my hotel room door and asked for a light, then said that they were a big fan. I was like, ‘Do you really need me to light your cigarette? How do you know what room I’m in?'”

She admits to feeling out-of-place at awards shows. She says that when she goes on stage to accept an award, people think she’s “nervous, uncomfortable, and awkward–and I am–but those are bad words for them.”

As for her often criticized red-carpet attitude, Stewart says she’s not miserable; she’s just overwhelmed. “It’s just that somebody’s yelling at me…I literally, sometimes, have to keep myself from crying…It’s a physical reaction to the energy that’s thrown at you.”
