Kristen Stewart Drops Out Of Mom’s Queer Prison Movie, Sticking To Gothic Fairy Tales

You’ll see It Girl Kristen Stewart in the next Twilight installment, Breaking Dawn, and in the upcoming revisionist fairy tale Snow White and the Huntsman. But you won’t see her as an autistic trans inmate in K-11, the directorial debut from her mother, Jules Mann-Stewart.

Don’t worry—Mann-Stewart, who’s been a script supervisor on everything from The Straight Story to Crank: High Voltage, is still making the film, a gritty, violent drama set in a section of the L.A. prison system reserved for LGBT criminals who won’t survive normal lock-up. It’s just that Kristen is too busy canoodling for the paparazzi and biting her lower lip in overblown tween romances to commit to the film—which still features Goran Visnjic (ER), D.B. Sweeney (Hard Ball), Jason Mewes (Clerks) and Kristen’s brother Cameron, among others.

It’s a total bummer, too. This sounds just like the kind of project KStew needs to break out of her ingenue shell. Seriously, look what Chained Heat did for Linda Blair.
