Kristen Stewart Lands Coveted Role in Lie Down in The Darkness

Kristen StewartIt looks like Kristen Stewart is going to do what she does best act. After a rough couple of weeks of bad publicity and even greater personal grief, Stewart is moving on in her professional like with Lie Down in The Darkness. 


The twenty two year old  Twilight actress has landed the lead role in the William Styron’s novel of the same name. In Lie Down in the Darkness, Kristen Stewart will play the young beautiful Peyton Loftis.


Directed by Crazy Heart helmer Scott Cooper and set in genteel fifties Virginia, in the film Peyton suffers under the jealous loathing of her mother and the lustful advances of her alcoholic father. The film is about her struggles against the twisted values of her dysfunctional family. Peyton is constantly compared to her crippled sister, Maudie.


It’s a role that Jennifer Lawrence was campaigning hard for, but her commitments to the X-Men and Hunger Games franchises have prevented her from signing on. Or that’s just a company line, and Kristen Stewart won the role outright. We will never really know.
