Kristen Stewart 'Not Cast In Lie Down In Darkness'
Director contradicts report last year that K-Stew had landed coveted role...
Kristen Stewartwill NOT be taking the lead role in the movie version of Lie Down In Darkness, it has been reported.
The former Twilight star was claimed last summer to have secured the coveted role of Peyton Loftis, from the acclaimed novel by William Styron.
But now director Scott Cooper has told Hitfix that there was no truth to the report that K-Stew had been cast in the role.
"When you're casting a family, all the elements have to come together perfectly and delicately. I'm in the process of talking to a number of actors and actresses."
Jennifer Lawrence - who has since won an Oscar of course - was also reported to have been eyeing up the role of the suicidal depressive Loftis.
