Kristen Stewart is finally getting the attention she deserves and, with the incoming release of Spencer (and its associated Oscar buzz), a David Cronenberg-written and directed film coming soon (Crimes of the Future, co-starring Viggo Mortensen and a remake of the 1970 classic), and plans to direct (an adaptation of The Chronology of Water, based on the 2011 memoir by Lidia Yuknavitch), the star once best known for Twilight is showing no signs of slowing down.
While doing press for Pablo Larraín's daring new Princess Diana drama, Stewart told Entertainment Weekly of a high-concept science fiction drama in her future. She is set to star opposite Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead, Minari, and the upcoming Jordan Peele movie Nope), and describes the project in the most intriguing way possible:
"It's actually a love story between a satellite and a buoy; it's hard to explain. I hope I don't botch it, because it's a really revolutionarily written script." Who the script is by, who will be directing, and every other detail beyond this very tempting morsel is unknown.
Though Kristen Stewart is now best known for a mix of indie dramas and light-hearted comedies, she also recently tackled the sci-fi genre with the Lovecraftian horror film Underwater.
We hope to find out who the creative team behind this mystery project will be, but the bringing together of two such talented actors is certainly cause for excitement.
