K-Stew Nabs Jennifer Lawrence's Fave Film Role
Kristen Stewart has reportedly been cast in Lie Down In Darkness...
K-Stew has been cast as the suicidal Peyton Loftis in Lie Down In Darkness - the movie adaptation of a novel by William Styron - according to New York Magazine.
But while K-Stew apparently expressed an interest in the role back in May, J-Law had been coveting it more recently.
She told W Magazine: "I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play.
"I worry about them - if someone else gets the part, I'm afraid they won't do it right; they'll make the character a victim or they'll make her a villain or they'll just get it wrong somehow.
"I'm trying to write the director of Lie Down In Darkness a letter to convince him that I should be in his movie. I'll chase him if I have to. I'll sit outside his house.
"I'm beside myself over that script. When I get like that, anything's possible."
However, it is thought that Lawrence's busy schedule with The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire and the follow-up to X-Men: First Class may have ruled her out of the project.
Meanwhile, it has been reported in the US that viewing figures for the Olympic archery have gone through the roof - with the popularity of The Hunger Games being cited as the reason.
NBC Research President Alan Wurtzel said: "Archery is the new curling. The numbers for archery have been nothing less than huge.
"Maybe it's the Hunger Games phenomenon. We're going to keep an eye on that."
We told you yesterday how K-Stew and BF Robert Pattinson are reported to be talking to one another again.
