Kristen Stewart Sets Up Next Two Projects

Will star in 'Camp X-Ray' and 'Sils Maria'

Kristen Stewart has lined up her next two projects, committing to the political pic “Camp X-Ray” and the indie “Sils Maria.”

Camp X-Ray” is being written and helmed by Peter Sattler and produced by Gina Kwon and Sophia Lin. Deadline Hollywood broke the news.

Story follows a girl who joins the military to escape her small town, only to come to realize that her tour of duty isn’t what she expected when she is sent to Guantanamo.

In “Sils Maria,” which IFC Films will release, Stewart joins Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz in a pic based on the idea of a middle aged person looking at how she has spent her life and what she has accomplished. Oliver Assayas will direct. Binoche plays an actress obsessed with her previous choices, and Stewart will play her assistant in a role which was previously filled by Mia Wasikowska, who has fallen out. Sils-Maria is a Swiss municipality.

The Gersh-repped Stewart had been on the prowl for her next project since “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” bowed last November.
