Doremus is coming off the infidelity drama “Breathe In,” which stars Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Amy Ryan and Mackenzie Davis. He has a strong rapport with Indian Paintbrush, which produced and financed his breakout film “Like Crazy.”

“Twilight” sensation Stewart next stars in the indies “Camp X-Ray” and “Sils Maria.” She's repped by Gersh and McKuin Frankel Whitehead.

    Wow! love sci fi gotta read more about the plot though. Kristen rocks! Not sure about Nick H but it depends on the story I guess.

    “Coming off the infidelity drama,” no kidding. Breathe In features a young girl who has an affair with a married man. I can see why this director would be interested in “working” with Kristen Stewart. I wonder if the producers know her Q score dropped from 30 to 10 after her cheating scandal? Audiences are turned off by her, this must be another micro budget indie.

      RME. I remember on Awards Daily the mod once called out one of the Rob Pattinson stans for pretending to be ten different people making the same comment…which I think was pretty much word for word with this, except it included a bit about how Rob Pattinson was better. Don't you stans have something better to do in life, those two have been broken up for a while anyway?

    Jeff: I haven't seen anything confirming Kristen and Nicholas have signed to do the movie. I've only read items saying they were being considered. Perhaps you can post the confirmation?

    Ugh! Not this girl. She doesn't know how to act! Why is she even in the industry?! She will probably ruin the movie!
