Kristen Stewart has become somewhat of an indie film Queen as of late and with her recent win at the Cesar Awards (French equivalent to the Oscars) the roles just keep piling up. Now, the young actress gears up to star in a new, fashionable ghost story entitled Personal Shopper. The announcement comes as Stewart.s film Clouds of Sils Maria premiered in competition at Cannes Film Festival, the same film which earned Stewart the Best Supporting Actress Cesar, an especially big deal considering Stewart was the first American actress to do so. According to Variety, the new project, Personal Shopper will pair Stewart yet again with Olivier Assayas, who directed the young actress in Sils Maria. Assayas penned the Personal Shopper script and will direct Stewart in a ghost story taking place in the fashion underworld of Paris. The story is said to feature similar themes to Sils Maria »
To call the partnership between director Olivier Assayas and actress Kristen Stewart a successful one would be an understatement. Both received overwhelming praise for drama Clouds of Sils Maria, one of the year’s best movies so far, in which Stewart played the personal assistant to an aging actress (Juliette Binoche). The film was particularly successful on the festival circuit, with Stewart becoming the first American actress to win a Cesar and the film earning five other César nominations. Now, Assayas and Stewart are smartly reteaming, for an English-language drama called Personal Shopper.
Described as a “ghost story taking place in the fashion underworld,” Personal Shopper is expected to touch on the same themes of celebrity and aging that Assayas and Stewart explored in Clouds of Sils Maria, with an added “genre/fantasy dimension.”
Despite being made in English, it’s a European production and set in Paris – the last »

★★★★☆ There's an alluring alchemy to Olivier Assayas' new work Clouds of Sils Maria (2014), a serpentine inquiry into the female interior masquerading as a film about cinema and the ephemeral nature of fame. Entangled in the dreamlike sensibilities of a filmmaker who delights in blurring the line between fiction and reality, it's a complex, meta-fictionional drama that elicits a career defining performance from Kristen Stewart. Assayas' latest focuses on the codependent relationship shared between ageing actress Maria (Juliette Binoche) and her personal assistant Valentine (Stewart). We first witness Valentine as she struggles with two mobile phones on a train winding through the Swiss Alps.

Kristen Stewart will reunite with Olivier Assayas, the director whose "Clouds of Sils Maria" won her a supporting actress Cesar and who has, no question, aided in the young star's rising dramatic chops, Variety reports from Cannes. Dubbed "Personal Shopper," the film is being pitched as "a Paris-set English-language ghost story taking place in the fashion underworld." Written and directed by Assayas, the film starts filming in Paris at the end of this year and will be steered by the "Sils Maria" team: Producer Charles Gillibert for CG Cinema, MK2 for international sales and Les Films du Losange. It sounds like the French auteur and Cannes vet is up to his typical meta-mischief tricks, blending genre and fantasy with headier themes. "Clouds of Sils Maria" bowed in the Cannes competition last year, and made Stewart the first American actor ever to win a Cesar. It's now in theaters. Read More: Kristen Stewart Explains How She. »

Amy Adams drop dead gorgeous on Oscars' Red Carpet Amy Adams at the 83rd Academy Awards Looking drop dead gorgeous, Amy Adams is pictured above donning a scintillating blue dress while arriving at the 2011 Oscar ceremony, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in the fast-thumping heart of Hollywood. Adams was – for the third time in six years (more info below) – a Best Supporting Actress nominee. This time around, she was shortlisted for her performance in David O. Russell's The Fighter, a generally well-regarded and surprisingly successful (in the U.S.) boxing drama that earned fellow supporting actress Melissa Leo the evening's Oscar. Another The Fighter actor, Christian Bale (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), took home the Best Supporting Actor Oscar statuette.
