Kristen Stewart Lands Lead Roles in ‘Sils Maria’ and ‘Camp X-Ray’


kristenstewart-indies-060513It looks like Kristen Stewart is going back to her indie roots by landing two new leading roles.

According to Deadline, Kristen has landed the leads in Camp X-Ray and Sils Maria.

<>Camp X-Ray is a politically charged drama in which she will play a young soldier who escapes her suffocating small town by joining the military, only to find that she isn’t going for a tour of duty in Iraq as she hoped. Instead, she’s sent to Guantanamo. Met with hatred and abuse from the Muslim men in her charge, she forges an odd friendship with a young man who has been imprisoned at Gitmo for eight years.

K-Stew will also join Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz in Sils Maria. The film explores middle age and that introspective period where one questions how they’ve spent their life so far and what they’ve accomplished. Kristen will play the assistant to Binoche’s character, an actress who becomes obsessed with a young actress (Moretz) playing the role that made the older actress famous when she was young.

Both films are set to begin production and filming this summer. Which of these films are you most excited for?
