Twitter was abuzz this morning with an old Kristen Stewart casting rumor (that I mistakenly thought was new): that she’s been offered a role in the upcoming Adrian Lyne-helmed film, Back Roads. Chloe Moretz is apparently attached to star in a yet unannounced role in the thriller, which follows a young man who must take care of his siblings after his father is arrested for killing his mom. He falls in love with a married neighbor, and then must battle criminal charges himself. It’s an intriguing storyline, and Lyne is an esteemed director whose credits include Unfaithful, Fatal Attraction, and – god bless him – Footloose.
Sure, it’s just a rumor, but it’s an exciting one in the wake of Kristen’s admittance to MTV News that she currently has no new projects on the horizon and is “in a good place to choose.” She dropped out of the Nick Cassavetes film Cali this summer and said that Lie Down In Darkness is a still possibility that she (and I!) hope happens. But for now, she’s doesn’t have stuff “mapped out.”
So let’s dream big here, KStew fans. What kind of movie do you want to see her do next? Is one of these your top pick, or are you into seeing her branch out in the rom-com world, or do something silly with Judd Apatow? Or maybe she’s better off doing nothing at all? We’ve got a poll for you to sound off in, below.
