Info on Kristen’s New Project “Sils Maria”

“Shooting begins this summer in Switzerland. The next Olivier Assayas film presents an exciting cosmopolitan distribution that includes Juliette Binoche in the role of a famous actress, Kristen Stewart is one of her assistants and Chloë Moretz is the young Hollywood actress.”

Location:

Germany and Switzerland – Allemagne (Leipiz et Berlin) – Suisse (Sils Maria)

Runtime:

1 hour 50 minutes

Character:

Valentine / Kristen Stewart – 25 years, Maria Enders assistant. A little more than a worker: her friend, her confidante. Both near and far. Also like Maria, she is very lonely.

Synopois:

At 18, Maria Enders got acquainted with success because of her play MalojaSnake, where she played Sigrid, a young ambitious girl whose troubling charm got an older woman – Helena – fascinated and drove her to suicide.

It was the role that changed her life.

More than 20 years later, at the peak of her fame, she was offered to receive a prestigious award in Zurich on behalf of Wihelm Melchior, the screenwriter and director of the play to whom she owe such an early fame. Seeing as Wihelm now lives secluded in Sils Maria, Switzerland.

But at the sudden death of Wihelm, a few hours before the ceremony, Maria Enders is put face to face with the fast paced of time and her past that she refuses to leave behind.

Not to mention, a young director offers her to remake MalojaSnake but to play Helena this time – to focus on the subject of the destruction that helped build her celebrity.

Trapped in the turmoil of her divorce that strips her from any emotional anchoring, the only person she speaks to is her assistant, Valentine, both a handywoman and her only friend. Even though both women try to erase all the ambiguities that make up their exclusive and intimate relationship.

The real threat is named Jo-Ann Ellis, a very young Hollywood actress with a scandalous reputation, who will take over the role of Sigrid. She will be both, her rival and the troubling mirror of her youth who she will have no choice but to face.

To reconcile with time, age and maturity, she will end up learning that at every turn of life, freedom, independence but also that the strength of one’s self have to be won, even if it’s painful.

Kristen to Star in Two New Films! “Camp X-Ray” & “Sils Maria”

Kstewartfans_March_23rd_2013__35_

EXCLUSIVEKristen Stewart has committed to star in back to back projects shooting this summer. She will star in Camp X-Ray, a politically charged drama written and directed by Peter Sattler, and she will also star in the Olivier Assayas-directed Sils Maria.

In Camp X-Ray, Stewart will play a young soldier who escapes her suffocating small town by joining the military, only to find that she isn’t going for a tour of duty in Iraq as she hoped. Instead, she’s sent to Guantanamo. Met with hatred and abuse from the Muslim men in her charge, she forges an odd friendship with a young man who has been imprisoned at Gitmo for eight years. The film’s being produced by Gina Kwon and Sophia Lin, and exec produced by David Gordon Green, Lindsay Williams and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein. Production begins late summer.

Stewart will join Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz in Sils Maria, the CG Cinema-produced English language film that Assayas wrote for his Summer Hours star Binoche. The film explores middle age and that introspective period where one questions how they’ve spent their life so far and what they’ve accomplished. The title refers to the Swiss setting, and Stewart plays the assistant to Binoche’s character, an actress who becomes obsessed with a young actress (Moretz) playing the role that made the older actress famous when she was young. The film shoots this summer in Europe. IFC acquired this film for distribution just before Cannes.

Stewart is repped by Gersh and McKuin Frankel Whitehead, and Sattler is repped by UTA, Gotham Group and attorney Adam Kaller.

New Kristen Interview with AZ Central

Let’s face it, if you’re Kristen Stewart, you’re forever going to be known as the actress from the “Twilight” movies.

That’s what happens when you’re the face of a franchise. But Stewart has also done some interesting smaller films, such as “The Cake Eaters,” “Adventureland” and “The Runaways” (playing a young Joan Jett).

“On the Road,” director Walter Salles’ version of the famous Jack Kerouac book, offers Stewart another chance to step away from Bella Swan. She plays Marylou, ex-wife of the character based on Neal Cassady (played by Garrett Hedlund). Stewart talked about that and what it was like to balance life between blockbusters.

Question: You’ve done huge movies and small ones. This one is somewhere in-between. Do they feel different when you’re making them?

Answer: It definitely doesn’t feel like an indie move that we really have to really peddle to get people to know about it. The nature of the story, I think, people have been waiting for it for decades, so the people who have any investment in it whatsoever, anybody who wants to see it, probably would have known about it.


Q: This is one of those books that for so long was considered not filmable. Did that add pressure?

A: Oh absolutely, my god. Walter, I mean, how many people spend years making a documentary in search of a possible film? He wasn’t even confident that he was going to make the movie. He was just satisfied and driven to research it and think about maybe putting a movie together. The honor that this thing is steeped in, it is hard to touch. The amount of work that it takes to make yourself feel validated, to even be there, to even consider helping out, is crazy — absolutely for me, unprecedented.

Q: A movie version has been talked about for years.

A: I think to look at the list of actors that came before you (who were discussed for the film) and go, wow, so those years passed you by. And then the next set of actors, they missed out. And so, is this actually going to come together with us? Is this actually going to happen?

Q: Wouldn’t it just stink to be one of the ones who missed out?

A: Oh god, it would be horrible. We weren’t completely sold that this movie was going to happen until we were literally standing on set, shooting it. Even throughout rehearsal it’s like, gosh, is this actually going to happen? It would have been the most painful, horrible experience. But fairly expected at the same time. I think it’s more surprising that we actually went through with it.

Q: How do you prepare for a role like this?

A: I think the only way to really satisfy anyone who loves “On the Road” with a film version is to genuinely have real experiences and hope that the research you’ve done and your love for the book finds its way into your body and into your bones, rather than through line readings, through pointed, planned-out scenes that you recall from the book. But everyone has a different experience reading that book. I think the point is to watch people surprise themselves rather than package and deliver a story to you.

Q: Does the reception of the film matter to you? Or of any film?

A: As soon as you’re really worried about how something is going to be consumed and at what level. … As an actor you should usually be thinking ahead. You should be looking in front of you instead of behind you. If the experience of making the movie wasn’t enough and you sort of need this validation at the end of the process, then you’re enjoying things for different reasons than I am.

Q: This is the second time that you likely will be associated with characters in famous books. Is that strange, that some people will think of you when reading it?

A: Yeah. It’s pretty mind-blowing. The other day they brought in a bunch of copies of “On the Road” for us to sign. The fact that I was even signing my name on that book really blew my mind. It’s crazy.

People.com

Kriste Stewart let loose with pals on Friday night in Los Angeles.

Hitting up El Arco Iris restaurant for some Mexican food and fun, the former Twilight star was joined by a group of male and female friends, and they ordered a big bowl of chicken soup, a pitcher of the strawberry margarita and a pitcher of the house special margarita.

“Kristen and her friends did a tequila shot,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE. “The staff said that Kristen was super sweet and was very thankful and even took photos with them.”

Dressed casually in jeans and a white T-shirt, the actress wore her hair wavy and down and flashed a peace sign in a photo that was taken at the eatery.
