Kristen Stewart and Elizabeth Banks Sign on for ‘The Big Shoe’

By  | 



The combination of actors from some of the biggest movie and television series has been hitting an all-time high lately. At the end of 2012, it was announced that Pretty Little Liars‘ Janel Parrish and Twilight‘s Jackson Rathbone would both star in the upcoming indie drama, The Concerto, together. Last week, it was reported that Catching Fire‘s Sam Claflin would play love interest to The Mortal Instruments‘ Lily Collins. Now, Twilight will be interlaced with The Hunger Games as Kristen Stewart and Elizabeth Banks are tapped to star in The Big Shoe opposite one another.

According to Deadline, the two actresses will share the big screen with Jim Sturgess in the pending dramedy. Here’s the synopsis: “Nate [Jim] is a gifted shoe designer forced to break free from a family who want[s] to turn his designs into mass-produced knock-offs. The family hires psychotherapist Mary Kay [Elizabeth] and muse Delphi [Kristen] to lure him back to work.”

This isn’t the only project on Kristen’s plate at the moment. She’s also scheduled to star in the sexy comedic film, Focus. When she originally signed on for the flick, Ben Affleck was cast as well. However, it was announced that he dropped it because “the timing just couldn’t be worked out.” Kristen teased the “strong possibility” of a Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, but so far, no further details have been released on that front.
