Kristen Stewart has joined Michelle Williams and Laura Dern in Kelly Reichardt’s untitled drama, set in Montana.

Stewart will portray a lawyer from Boise, Idaho, who takes a teaching job several hours from her house. After taking the job, Stewart’s character develops a friendship with a local woman who’s auditing her class.

Stewart was seen most recently in Julianne Moore’s “Still Alice.” She recently became the first American actress to win a Cesar at France’s most prominent film awards show for her co-starring role in “Cloud of Sils Maria.”

Neil Kopp and Anish Savjani are producing the Reichardt project, a series of vignettes in a small town in Montana.

Reichardt most recently directed “Night Moves” with Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning.

Stewart is repped by Gersh.

The news about Stewart was first reported by Deadline.

    They are filming where I work and they are not very nice people. I thought hollywod people were nice and friendly but I got a rude awaking. I thought she would be nice and all but I guess I was wrong. I like her as actress in her films but it makes me wonder if all hollywood people are like that.

    This sounds really interesting. Kristen has been choosing really good, interesting projects – kudos to her.

    FYI to ‘Days’: commenting on Kristen Stewart on an article written about her *is* staying on the subject.

    Can we make the comment section about the article subject ? Thanks.
    Kstew and rpatz fandom are equally dumb.

    She’s making excellent acting choices in boutique indie films that really show off her talent.

    Kristen Stewart’s is soaring. She’s receiving excellent reviews in her last three movies. She has three movies coming up. SHE MADE HISTORY! She’s the first American actress to receive a Cesars Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Clouds of Sils Maria! Kristen makes smart choices and she’s only 24! Her work ethic pays off no matter what tabloids or haters say about her! She’s also received BAFTA award and I know she’ll win an Oscar very soon. Well done!

    No one twisting your arm – we live in a country that we can still decide to watch what we want – no sensoring from the government – problem solved – DON’T WATCH HER MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Why is it that men can have a close relationship with other men and it’s just a close relationship with a man but women who have close relationships with other women it has to be a lesbian relationship. Ms. Stewart can portray anyone she likes – she is an actress after all – that is her job and it appears to pay her well seeing that she doesn’t have to work another day if she decides not too. Try living in 2015, men can marry men and women can marry women, get over it!!!!!!!!

    Not jealous much, are we??????????
