Kristen Stewart has joined the cast of the UNTITLED KELLY REICHARDT PROJECT. The indie drama, which also stars Laura Dern and Michelle Williams, is described as a series of vignettes that revolve around the lives of people in small-town Montana.
Stewart will play a nervous young lawyer from Boise who takes a teaching job several hours from her house and develops a close friendship with Jamie, a local woman who’s auditing her class.
James Le Gros and Sara Rodier have also been cast, joining previously cast Jared Harris.
Kelly Reichardt will write and direct the picture, Neil Kopp and Anish Savjani producing.
Stewart most recently starred in Still Alive, Camp X-Ray, and Clouds of Sils Maria, the latter of which made her the first American actress to win France’s César Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Up next, the former Twilight star will appear in American Ultra, Anesthesia, and Equals. She’ll also return for the currently untitled Snow White and The Huntsman sequel.
Stewart is repped by Gersh.
