Will Kristen Stewart still act in her mother’s film, “K-11”?

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: “K-11” is the baby of Jules Mann-Stewart, writer/director of the film and mother of “Twilight” mega-star, Kristen. The film appeared to be building steam after Variety’s March announcement that the project had finally secured financing. Yet, several recent developments indicate that Stewart will not be starring in the film, as had originally been believed.

For months, IMDB Pro had “K-11” listed as a rumored project for Stewart, referencing her role as that of autistic transgender prison inmate Butterfly. Not only has IMDB Pro removed this listing from Stewart’s profile in recent weeks—it has kept listings of other rumored cast, such as Goran Visnjic and D.B. Sweeney.

Another indicator: actor-targeted computer app, Actsophia, posted a casting call announcement on its Facebook page on June 1st, announcing that “Pam Dixon is casting “K-11”” and mentioning role descriptions including this one: “BUTTERFLY 19 Redhead Tiny Beauty”.

In terms of Stewart’s production schedule, “Snow White and the Huntsman” is slated to begin shooting in September. Stewart is also listed for a role in “Backwoods”, a short that is also slated to be played by Julianne Moore. “K-11” was originally slated to begin filming in June or July, yet concrete cast details remain nonexistent.

Also casting doubt on Stewart’s intention to act in the film is the fact that her role as Butterfly was rarely (if ever) discussed by Stewart herself. It was mostly discussed by Stewart’s “Twilight” co-star Nikki Reed, who first commented in March 2009 to MTV News: “Kristen is playing a boy, and I am playing a man who is quite a few years older than she is. I am working more on my accent.” Reed since announced her departure from the project in April 2010.

    Latest update 6/19 from the rumormill is that the role has been offered to Kristen. (for what it’s worth, could change tomorrow, right?) She’s got to do something until September/SWATH. Commercially unacceptable, edgy, dark, directed by her Mom – very Stew-like – I’ll be disappointed if she doesn’t take a shot at it! Thanks for keeping the alt-movie news out there.
