Kristen Stewart is set to spend her summer starring in Peter Sattler's indie drama "Camp X-Ray," as well as Olivier Assayas' next movie "Sils Maria," the "Twilight" star's publicist has confirmed to TheWrap.
Stewart joins Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz in "Sils Maria," which will find her playing the assistant for a veteran actress (Binoche) who becomes obsessed with a younger actress (Moretz) who has been cast in the role that made her a star years before.
CG Cinema is producing the English-language movie, which "Carlos" director Assayas wrote specifically for his "Summer Hours" star Binoche. Production will take place this summer in Europe, and IFC Films acquired U.S. distribution rights in advance of Cannes.
Deadline had initially reported that Mia Wasikowska would play the younger actress but that report proved premature.
"Camp X-Ray" is a completely different vehicle for Stewart, who will play a young woman who decides to escape her small town and join the military, hoping to be deployed to Iraq. Instead, she is sent to Guantanamo, where she forges an unlikely friendship with a young man who has been imprisoned there for nearly a decade.
Gina Kwon and Sophia Lin are producing "Camp X-Ray," while David Gordon Green is exec producing with Lindsay Williams and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein.
Stewart is repped by Gersh, while UTA reps Sattler.
Deadline first reported Stewart's involvement in "Sils Maria," while Production Weekly tweeted the "Camp X-Ray" news several weeks ago.
