Kristen Stewart will reunite with her “Clouds of Sils Maria” director Olivier Assayas for Paris fashion industry-set ghost story “Personal Shopper.”

The 2014 “Clouds of Sils Maria”  premiered at Cannes and netted Stewart a Cesar, France’s highest acting honor, for best supporting actress.

Stewart, the first American actor to win a Cesar, was honored for her role as the assistant to an actress portrayed by Juliette Binoche. She was the first American actress ever nominated in the category, and the first to be nominated in 30 years in any acting category.

TheWrap film critic Alonso Duralde said of Stewart’s turn in “Clouds of Sils Maria”: “It’s a performance that radiates intelligence and compassion and a thousand unspoken opinions.”

Filming on “Personal Shopper,” written by Assayas, is expected to begin in fall 2015. Also returning from “Sils Maria” are producer Charles Gillibert for CG Cinema, MK2 on international sales and Les Films du Losange.

“#DreamTeam,” Gillibert tweeted.
