Some good news for Kristen Stewart (who could probably use some these days). She has been cast as the lead role in "Lie Down in Darkness", a drama being directed by Scott Cooper. The film is an adaptation of a 1951 novel written by William Styron.
The film is about a dysfunctional family and the death of their daughter Peyton (played by Stewart) and the events on the day of her funeral.
The film will be produced by Jeff Sharp.
