Kristen Stewart is participating in an all-new ‘Twilight’-related project without her former flame and co-star, Robert Pattinson! Then again, it’s minus all of her other co-stars! What’s going on here? Watch the video right here to find out!
Okay, okay. We admit that we do miss the franchise that made vampires and werewolves sexy, which is why we are so excited about Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer’s new project, Storytellers, which aims to release mini-movies related to the series on Facebook next year! Furthermore, it only seems fitting that Kristen Stewart, 24, who played female lead Bella Swan, joins her in this venture. We wonder what Robert Pattinson, 28, thinks about this!
Kristen Stewart In New ‘Twilight’ Project Without Robert Pattinson — Video
So, here’s the deal. Storytellers is Stephenie’s brainchild, and we’re so excited that it will revive the series! Stephenie and Lionsgate are holding a competition in which they will pick out five aspiring female directors to create mini-movies based on Twilight, according to MTV News. Obviously, every contest needs to be judged, and that’s where Kristen comes in!
The video shows Kristen along with other judges, like Octavia Spencer, urging female filmmakers to show off their chops. “I am where I am because of all the strong women who came before me, to help pave the way,” says Kristen in the video. Powerful stuff!
Kristen Stewart Going Back To Her Roots Despite Huge Film Success
We love that Kristen is paying homage to the series that launched her career into the stratosphere, even when she’s so busy on other projects! Kristen has got four movies in the pipeline right now — the soon-to-be-released Still Alice as well as Anesthesia, Equals, and American Ultra.
Her most recently-released film, Clouds Of Sils Maria, was screened to huge acclaim at Cannes and competed for the coveted Palme d’Or!
So, HollywoodLifers, are you looking forward to the upcoming mini-movies and for Kristen’s role in judging them? Let us know!
