Kristen Stewart, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth Join Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice'

Berlin: Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland will direct the indie drama that Memento Films International is shopping at EFM

Kristen Stewart, Alec Baldwin and Kate Bosworth are set to join Julianne Moore in the indie drama “Still Alice,”  which is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Lisa Genova, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.

Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland will direct the film, which stars Moore as a professor of neuroscience who discovers she's suffering from early onset Alzheimer's disease.

Stewart will play Moore's youngest daughter, who bonds with her mother during her illness in a way they never did before.

Memento Films International is selling the film at the European Film Market in Berlin. The project already pre-sold many international territories at the American Film Market on the strength of Moore's attachment.

Lex Lutzus, Pamela Koffler and James Brown are producing in association with Killer Films, while Maria Shriver will executive produce.

BSM Studio is financing the film, which is scheduled to start production in early March in New York City. CAA is handling domestic rights.

After the “Twilight” franchise launched her to stardom, Stewart has preferred doing indie movies to big-budget blockbusters, judging by her recent choices. She earned strong reviews at Sundance for her portrayal of a Guantanamo Bay guard in “Camp X-Ray,” and will soon be seen opposite Juliette Binoche in “Sils Maria.”

Stewart recently wrapped a small role in Tim Blake Nelson's “Anesthesia,” and she'll soon begin filming Nima Nourizadeh's action-comedy “American Ultra” with Jesse Eisenberg. She's repped by the Gersh Agency and McKuin Frankel Whitehead.

Bosworth recently starred alongside James Franco in “Homefront” and will soon be seen in Mike Flanagan's horror movie “Somnia.”

Baldwin, who played Moore's love interest on “30 Rock,” recently wrapped Cameron Crowe's latest movie starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone. He's repped by CAA, which also represents Bosworth along with Radius Entertainment.

Screen International first reported the casting of Baldwin and Bosworth, while Stewart's casting was initially denied last month.

    you need to re-read the Camp X-Ray reviews Jeff! Let's meet on twitter and twitter-fight, per your usual fashion!

    • G

      Most normal people classify reviews from the likes of THR, Variety, HitFix, IndieWire, etc. calling a performance “riveting,” “transfixing,” “powerful,” and comparing it to the work of Jodie Foster, “strong” to say the least. So whatever second-rate blogs and snarky tweets you would like to point to, go ahead. The respectable critiques praised her performance as very strong indeed.

        She got strong reviews for the most part, I completely agree. Pointing out though that the person you are talking with has a Rob Pattinson avatar though, so I believe your point is probably lost on them.

      Everybody look at Evita1500's posting history and tell me that this is a balanced individual. Yeah… exactly. Robert Pattinson has the most deranged fans who seem to be obsessed with Kristen Stewart. Go and hug your Edward Cullen pillow evita, immature little twat

      It's sad to see someone that I used to talk to regularly turn into a sad internet troll.

    Beware of crazy Rpatzzz fans.

    • Loui

      The RPatz crazies will try and deny this story again, as you have just mentioned.

    Hey dumbass, Kristen prefers indie post Twilight you infer? Do your Homework dude. She did indie before Twishit. If doing blockbusters comes with fans like the Robsessed, well she may never do one again, that is just fine with us sane fans. BTW, Twishit was listed as an “indie” movie before it exploded into a blockbuster. Again, do your homework.
