Kristen Stewart on Breaking Dawn: "Still Not Concrete"

Breaking Dawn isn't officially a go yet. Neither is the plan to make two movies instead of one.

"I have been told to be ready for November," Kristen Stewart tells me. "I mean, it looks like a 'yes,' but it's still not concrete."

Stewart believes the story in the fourth book in the Twilight series "absolutely warrants" being two films. "It would be hard to cram all of it into one movie," she said earlier today while promoting her new drama The Yellow Handkerchief.

Things have certainly changed since Stewart and Rob Pattinson signed on for the first flick...

Is Amanda Seyfried the Next Kristen Stewart?

Remember Leonardo DiCaprio's little werewolf movie, the one he's going to produce with Catherine Hardwicke directing? Things are moving forward with that production, and according to the LA Times, Amanda Seyfried is one of the names they're looking at. Seeing that no other names are mentioned in the piece, she could very well be the top name in contention -- albeit an older, Beverly Hills 90210 sort of casting choice.

Titled The Girl with the Red Riding Hood, the project is a modern spin on the classic Grimm story: "The story is an update of Little Red Riding Hood, with the requisite dark/dangerous/romantic elements that can appeal to Twilight fans -- while also attracting audiences who simply like the fairy tale." Yes, due to the werewolf element and the fact that it's based on teens, the Times positions it all in a Twilight world. That's fair, but this is one project that seems more based in something else. Aside from the solid source material, "The script has gotten high marks from power players around town, who describe it as elevated genre material a la this weekend's Shutter Island." Wouldn't it, therefore, be more precise to say this could be due just as much to The Wolfman as it is to the shirtless New Moon wolves?

The piece goes on to discuss that this feature doesn't have the trio of Twilight stars, "but then those stars were made by Twilight, not the other way around." Perhaps if this was the early 2000s, when Seyfried had done mostly soap opera work, or 2004 after Mean Girls, or 2006 after Veronica Mars, I'd buy Seyfried as the next Kristen Stewart. But while not getting accosted by fans on a daily basis, she does have the recognizable name: the Needy girl in Jennifer's Body, Sarah from Big Love, and to more mainstream audiences, the lead of the big money makers Mamma Mia! and Dear John.

So, possible further fame and maybe a little ComicCon craziness if there's a lusty co-lead for the ladies? Sure. The next Kristen Stewart? I give Seyfried more credit than that, as more star power in a new project than the next big thing. You?

Interview: Kristen Stewart and The Yellow Handkerchief

In The Yellow Handkerchief, actress Kristen Stewart plays Martine, a lonely and troubled teenager who heads out on a road trip with Gordy (Eddie Redmayne), a young man looking to get closer to her, and Brett (William Hurt), an ex-convict, just released from prison after serving six years for manslaughter, who is trying to reconcile himself with his past. The trio are all going in the same direction, but quickly find their relationships forging and changing in many ways.

At the press day for the film, Kristen Stewart talked about what drew her to this smaller, independent film. She also gave an update on her own feeling about whether Breaking Dawn, the final book in the Twilight Saga, should be split into two films, how excited she is about the March release of The Runaways and her hopes to make the drama K-11 with her mother at the helm.

Q: What was it like to play this character, when you hadn't done too many major roles, at the time you did this film?

Kristen: Anytime you have to play a person who is not yourself, you're stepping out of a comfort zone, but that's what we do. If the role is bigger, that's just more to chew on, and that's always good.

Everybody loves Stew

She's wonderfully intelligent and a bright spunky girl and was when we made this a couple of years ago and remains it now," he said. "And after
all the craziness that I've watched Rob, who's an old mate and I knew Rob before I met Kristen actually, and they both retained such a great
head on their shoulders despite the extraordinary chaos and wonder that is 'Twilight.' So I think they'll remain doing interesting work, and I
can't wait to see what it is they'll do next."

Kristen Stewart’s LBD [Lainey's take on the TYH premiere]

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

At the premiere of The Yellow Hankerchief last night, her face exquisite as usual although I want to push the hair out of her face. Not that it doesn’t look good, just that if it were me, I hate it when my eyes are covered, it would have been a major irritant.

As for her dress, well, it’s not every day I’m not down with Stewart in an LBD, but this one isn’t so flattering. It’s a good idea, yeah, with sequins lining the sides and the hem, but the sequin panels actually flatten her shape in a straight line on both sides which makes her look wider than she really is. There’s no waist, see?

Also the way the sleeves cut off her arm – makes her look kinda butch. I like my KStew butched up now and again, but butch was not what was intended. Edgy and butchy are not the same. Am looking forward to what she does for the BAFTAs. Stewart is now confirmed to attend as a nominee for the Orange Rising Star Award. She will also be presenting at the Oscars. Many more opportunities for steeze.


Kristen Stewart & Eddie Redmayne On Bonding In New Orleans & Robert Pattinson’s British Boy Pack

Kristen Stewart was a pre-“Twilight” 17 years old when she filmed the coming of age drama “The Yellow Handkerchief,” with British actor Eddie Redmayne in New Orleans, a film due out later this month. But the two stars revealed to AccessHollywood.com on Thursday that Kristen learned her first details about her then-upcoming co-star Robert Pattison from Eddie, who turned out to be a R-Patz pal.Collapse )

Kristen talks Eclipse, K-11 and Sundance

At a recent press conference for Kristen Stewart‘s latest indie flick, The Yellow Handkerchief, also starring Maria Bello and William Hurt, we squeezed a little extra juice out of the actress regarding her upcoming projects. Stewart recently exploded into prominence after her multi-million dollar success with Stephanie Meyers’ Twilight intoxicated teenage girls all over the universe. Despite the constant tsunami of vampire frenzy, Stewart was surprisingly, well, normal and willing to talk about Twilight and more.

Check out the clips from the interview below…

So there’s a lot of hype over whether or not Eclipse will be shot as two films or one. Any predictions?

Kristen Stewart: I don’t know, actually. The story so completely warrants two films, it would be disappointing to have to lose this sequence and this scene. I would like to do two movies – but to be perfectly honest, I don’t know what they’re going to do.

The Runaways had a very successful premiere at Sundance last month.

KS: We all knew if it did well it’d be a Sundance movie. But now it’s being released – it’s becoming a bigger deal than we thought which is always exciting. Sundance was awesome, I love Sundance. It’s one of the only places you can go and show your movie and talk to 300 people who just saw it. It’s just a different experience.

Your mom wrote, and is planning on directing the film K-11, which you’re slated to act in. Any news on that front?

KS: Were’ trying to get it off the ground. If she called me right now and said we’re making the movie I’d be really excited. We’re really close, and at the same time were creatively different. It’d be cool – we could actually leave the family thing behind, I think.

With Twilights colossal success, you seem to be one of the few actresses who can probably pick and choose her upcoming projects. What are you looking for now that the industry is essentially your oyster?

KS: As much as you can say, well, I like to do this because it’s different than what I’ve done before. I can’t really plan things out like that because whether or not a character fits my description and the script is good – what actually drives me to do something like this – it has to speak to me in some way. That’s always hard to describe. This is the first time I haven’t had one of my next jobs lined up. I have a totally clean horizon, so that’s pretty exciting.

There’s a little taste for all of you K-Stew addicts! Check back soon for the rest of her interview about her upcoming movie The Yellow Handkerchief!

lmaoooooooooooooooooo she declined tomb raider

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Remember when Warner Brothers announced they were developing a Tomb Raider reboot? That was a year ago and we haven’t heard a peep towards any commencement since.

So we did our own tomb-raiding and uncovered what’s going on. At the moment, nothing’s happening. I know plenty will bitch and moan "Who cares about Tomb Raider anymore?" Well, the two Angelina Jolie starring films earned about $450 million worldwide. Then you have the video games (where this all started obviously), home video, etc. that continue to sell. Given the recent examples of Batman, James Bond and Star Trek, rebooting is a viable route to go for troubled franchises.

It also boils down to who the studio can get to headline. Unlike the afore-mentioned Trek, the Spider-Man reboot and countless others, it was felt a "name" actress was the best direction to head. Get someone audiences already know to peak their interest in seeing this new Tomb Raider. Fair enough.

Such a "name" included Transformers star Megan Fox who was made an offer. The problem is she’s been widely compared to Angelina Jolie in the past. Taking the role would have only further fueled said comparison. Thus she understandably said, "Thanks, but no thanks!"

Well the studio then went to an arguably bigger name – Twilight star Kristen Stewart. She’s a hot item right now along with her Twilight co-stars – especially Taylor Lautner. He’s attached to so many projects I don’t have enough fingers to count them all. Wouldn’t be surprised if he was on-board for another three or so by the time this article is published. But a deal between Stewart and the WB couldn't be reached.

And that is where we stand at this very moment. We frankly don’t know if it’ll ever happen. But WB is definitely trying to get a Tomb Raider reboot going.
