Kristen Stewart Ready To “Lie Down”

Kristen Stewart has scored the leading role in “Crazy Heart” director Scott Cooper’s indie drama “Lie Down in Darkness”, an adaptation of William Styron’s 1951 novel at Open Road Media says Vulture.

The story centers on a dysfunctional and disintegrating family on the day of the funeral of one of the daughters named Peyton (Stewart).

Jennifer Lawrence was reportedly keen on the role but is occupied with sequel commitments shooting “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.

Jeff Sharp will produce, but no production dates have yet been set.
