Kristen Stewart Signs on for ‘Camp X-Ray’ Amid Break-Up News

By  | 



It started off as a rocky week for Kristen Stewart, when news of her break-up with longtime boyfriend Robert Pattinson hit headlines. And, although it’s been said that she visited Taylor Swift‘s home soon after, that proved to be untrue. But just because she had a sour few days doesn’t mean her week has to end as it began.

According to Production Weekly, the 23-year-old actress is tapped to star in Camp X-Ray. Here’s what we know so far: “Having escaped from her suffocating small town into the military, Cole (Stewart) had been hoping for a tour of duty in Iraq. Instead, she’s sent to Guantanamo. Met with hatred and abuse from the Muslim men in her charge, Cole finds herself forging an odd friendship with Ali, who has been imprisoned at Gitmo for eight years.” Filming is scheduled to begin mid-July.

Although it’s yet to be confirmed, reports suggest that Kristen may also have another film in the pipeline, alongside James Franco. The plot: “The movie takes place around the time of The Great Depression. It all starts when Janie (Kristen’s would-be character) is forced to move in with a farm family after her grandfather commits suicide. But when the son tries to rape her, she injures him badly and flees the town unaware of whether or not the son is still alive. That’s when she meets the dashing criminal, Ricky, and the two embark on a journey across the country, as they must stay one step ahead of the law and two hired hitmen who are hot on their trail.”

Both seem like a far cry from Twilight, eh? What do you think of KStew’s latest casting news? Are you still mourning the demise of Robsten? Share your thoughts in the comments!
