The actress has scored the lead in Cali, an upcoming indie movie from Voltage Productions and New School Media, producers announced on Friday.
Stewart will play Mya, who is forced to return home to help “save” her younger sister, years after the trouble-causing Mya and her boyfriend left town.
The Twilight Saga star is also expected to produce the flick, which is slated to begin filming in late summer.
“Kristen is a talented and dynamic actor, with a proven box office draw,” Voltage’s Craig J. Flores tells Variety.
He continues, “Her role in Cali will be edgy and sexy. It will no doubt push the envelope on the public’s view of Kristen’s wide-ranging abilities. Voltage is thrilled to have her as a partner on this fantastic film.”
Stewart will next be seen, of course, in Snow White and the Huntsman, which opens June 1.
