You can’t really deny prospective appeal of Kristen Stewart playing a gun-wielding, gadget-toting, ass-kicking super detective, which makes today’s potential casting news pretty exciting. Elizabeth Banks and Sony are reportedly eyeing Stewart to play one of the three leads in their upcoming big screen reboot of Charlie’s Angels, but she’s not the only awesome name under consideration — obviously.
We are living in the peak era of Twin Peaks. In addition to David Lynch’s riveting television revival (which will inevitably become the best series of 2017, don’t @ me), the iconic filmmaker’s cult classic prequel film is coming to The Criterion Collection this October. Also joining the prestigious collection: Kristen Stewart’s spooky text messages, a murderous mermaid musical from Poland, Stanley Kubrick, and more.
There’s a pretty neat-sounding movie that’s been quietly in the works for a few months: Kristen Stewart signed on to Underwater back in February, which is described as an Armageddon-like action-thriller that centers around a submarine crew, an earthquake, and a fight for survival. If you’re a fan of famous French actors and/or Black Swan, get excited, because Vincent Cassel has officially joined the crew.
You know Kristen Stewart from the Twilight franchise. But did you know she got the role of Bella Swan because of her work in another movie? In 2007, Stewart played a supporting role in Into the Wild starring Emile Hirsch. It was Hirsch who recommended Stewart to Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, and set the actress on the path to her most famous part. That’s just one of the facts in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
After seeing four of her movies premiere last year — Personal Shopper, Certain Women, Cafe Society, and Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk — Kristen Stewart is back at it, this time with something a little different. She’s currently in talks for an action-thriller joint titled Underwater, which will be directed by The Signal’s Will Eubank.
The latest Kristen Stewart project to finally hit our shores is Personal Shopper, a kind of ghost story that made waves at Cannes and the Toronto Film Festival last year. Stewart and director Olivier Assayas previously collaborated on 2015’s fantastic Clouds of Sils Maria, and their second project together has been pretty divisive, but Stewart made our Best of TIFF list for completely carrying this movie all on her own. A new trailer heralds the film’s US release, which opens next month.
After a small intermission that followed Aziz Ansari, SNL is back and ready for its big February encore. As such, host Kristen Stewart and star Beck Bennett workshop their musical in this Saturday’s first promos. They’ve even got three whole words down!
One day after the presidential inauguration, SNL host Aziz Ansari followed Dave Chappelle’s example to deliver a thoughtful and ultimately optimistic monologue about America’s future, but it wasn’t the night’s only news. Kristen Stewart has signed on as 2017’s third SNL host, due in early February.
