Kristen Stewart’s next three movie roles are diverse and promising
Kristen Stewart has been making a huge comeback for a few years now. TheTwilight star has landed starring roles in over a dozen of critically acclaimed indie movies. She’s slated to star in Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels reboot with Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska too. According to Variety, Her momentum isn’t slowing down either. There’s three movies on the horizon that have us particularly excited.
Stewart’s in talks to star in Happiest Season, a romantic holiday comedy about a young female who is getting ready to propose girlfriend. The girlfriend hasn’t come out to her conservative parents yet, which completely throws off the young woman’s plans to propose at her family’s big holiday party.
Happiest Season was written by Clea DuVall and comedian Mary Holland, with DuVall directing. Variety doesn’t say who else might star or which of the two central characters will be played by Stewart.
A few months ago, a rumor started making the rounds that Warner Bros. is on the lookout for a “Kristen Stewart prototype” to play Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl, in the DCEU. And while we still haven’t had any official confirmation of such an idea, Twitter user and regular leaker @DanielRPK is doubling down on the notion with a new post that shares excerpts from a document with this exact casting description.
Naturally, this latest report will only help fuel the speculation that K-Stew herself could be landing the part. Since the actress made a splash with her oft-ridiculed performance in the Twilight movies, Stewart has spent these last few years building up her indie and arthouse credentials in acclaimed works like Personal Shopper and Certain Women. Nonetheless, as the upcoming Charlie’s Angels movie indicates, the star remains open to trying popular franchise fare.
Twilight: Midnight Sun Pt 1
The most rumored of them all – The first entry into a two part return for the Twilight Saga. Kristen, along with the rest of the main Twilight cast, has become increasingly open to doing more Twilight movies in public interviews. The rumored script is a modern twist on the original Midnight Sun that leaked years ago.
The original Midnight Sun novel was Edward’s perspective of the original Twilight movie. You begin to learn more about the main characters, and see things from his perspective. Of course, this was scrapped when the novel leaked before it was even finished.
The new take on this movie would be that it revolves around Edward telling his side of the story to his daughter, Renesmee. Rumors suggest that the two parter will include Renesmee and Jacob’s wedding, the return of the Volturi, and a Cullen Clan member turning evil to fight alongside Aro. The rumored release date is unconfirmed, but it’s expected in Winter 2019.
