Kristen Stewart not yet cast in ‘Lie Down in Darkness’


Stewart: not definite for “Lie Down.” (Michael Buckner - GETTY IMAGES FOR LIONSGATE)
Earlier today, it looked like Kristen Stewart had won the coveted lead in “Lie Down in Darkness,” the adaptation of the William Styron novel. Now it appears that hasn’t happened just yet.

Vulture had reported this afternoon that Stewart was on board for the film, having snagged the part of Peyton Loftis that also piqued the interest of Jennifer Lawrence. I blogged off that news, as did many other media outlets. But a source close to the production tells Celebritology that reports of Stewart’s casting are premature, issuing the following statement: “While it’s exciting to see all the interest the project is generating, the film is still in the pre-production process and no offers to cast have been made as of yet.”

Stewart’s agent, Ken Kaplan, echoed the sentiments in that statement via e-mail tonight.

“This movie is at a very early stage,” he wrote. “It is unfinanced and while Kristen is ‘attached’ to play the role, there is no guarantee that, if the movie gets made, she will actually do the role. All of the reporting on this is extremely premature.”

In other words, Stewart may still star in “Lie Down in Darkness,” but it’s not close to a done deal yet. So there you have it. Why must all stories that involve Stewart and/or Robert Pattinson be so complicated right now?
