Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César. (Stewart became the first American actress to take home the French Academy Award. »

American Ultra stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will be reunited later this year in another project: Woody Allen's next as yet untitled feature. Bruce Willis is the third cast member whose name has been publicly announced. The source for this information is an "exclusive" report via Deadline.com's Mike Fleming Jr. So far, as Fleming explains in his brief piece, Woody Allen and "his people" haven't confirmed the casting. In other words, things could change in the not-too-distant future. See also: Kristen Stewart Joins Kelly Reichardt Movie Project, also featuring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams. Unsurprisingly, no plot details about the upcoming Woody Allen project have been forthcoming. In fact, one wonders if Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Bruce Willis – in case they have indeed joined the fold – know what the movie is going to be about. Allen's latest collaborators – Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson – will be producing the film. »

British pop star Ellie Goulding hasn't had a proper album released since 2012, but since then the artist has appeared on the soundtracks to "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," "The Host," "About Time," "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Divergent," and, perhaps most memorably, over the closing credits to stone cold masterpiece "Spring Breakers." Her latest contribution to her ever-growing soundtrack compendium is a new track for the hotly anticipated "Fifty Shades of Grey," opening on February 13th.
The track, an unbelievably catchy number called "Love Me Like You Do," has an accompanying music video and said music video features ballroom dancing, Goulding walking around in a black leather jacket, and, oh yeah, brand new footage from the movie (starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan). Don't worry, it's totally safe for work. The soundtrack, which also features cuts from The Weeknd, Annie Lennox, and Sia, will be out on February 10th. »

In the two years after Kristen Stewart last played Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the actress has taken on a number of diverse indie projects such as On the Road, Camp X-Ray and the critically-acclaimed Still Alice, which opened nationwide last weekend. During an interview with Yahoo! Movies, the actress expresses her desire to star in a superhero movie some day. Here's what she had to say, revealing she would love to show her fans a different side of her acting abilities by joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
"I love watching those movies. I would love to show people that I can do more than just be 'Kristen Stewart' in a different movie, in a different circumstance."
She does have experience in the big-budget action realm, starring in 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman before the final Twilight movie. She adds that »
Kristen Stewart has been going down a different path ever since the final installment of the Twilight series. After taking a quick break following the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, she has been appearing in smaller films such as Camp X-Ray, Clouds of Sils Maria, and most recently Still Alice (alongside Julianne Moore who just nabbed an Oscar nom for Best Actress). But, despite Stewart.s time down indie film row, she won.t leave bigger budget films out of the picture completely, and claims she would love to play a role in a Marvel movie, specifically Captain America. With all the hate that Stewart sometimes gets, she shouldn.t be underestimated. The actress is only 24 years old and already has 33 film credits ranging in genre and bringing in a whole lot of money. So when Stewart admits interest in something, it is not such »
