American actress Kristen Stewart just snatched the leading role in Lie Down in Darkness, a film based on the novel of the same name by Sophie's Choice author William Styron.
In spite of her much publicized fall-out with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart is on track professionally.
According to New York Magazine's movie blog Vulture, the 22-year-old will play the leading role in the family drama produced by Open Road Media.
Kristen Stewart cheated on beau Robert Pattinson with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders - who is married and has two children.
Vulture reports that Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) had also been eyeing the role in this indie movie, set in Virginia, about a beautiful young woman called Peyton Loftis whose jealous mother and alcoholic father push her to commit suicide.
