Kristen Stewart gets employment, costarring with Elizabeth Banks in "The Big Shoe"

Kristen Stewart is set to join the cast of Steven Shainberg's comedy drama "The Big Shoe." Elizabeth Banks is also confirmed for the cast alongside Jim Sturgess.

Marking helmer Shainberg's first feature outing since 2006's "Fur," "The Big Shoe" follows a show designer (Sturgess) whose family want to use his designs to make mass-produced knock-offs for fast profit. The family hires a muse (Stewart) and a psychotherapist (Banks) to lure him back to work when he breaks free from the family.

The film is described by Shainberg as combining eroticism and humor in the same vein as his 2002 film "Secretary."

I'm really pleased with this. Mostly because Kristen seems to be branching out in her filmography now. Plus the fashion lover in me will probably appreciate this.

I don't think she has many branches to leap to :(

She went from OTR (sex kitten) to Focus (sex kitten) to this where she again will play a sex kitten. Can she typecast herself even worse?

I just can't see her as that lol, which is why its so funny. The only roles that have even moderately worked in her favor were the super awkward angsty type roles like Speak and Adventureland.

Of course. Angsty awkward sex kitten. :-D It's not like she will act like a normal human being. The muse will be an awkward teen.

her career is so dead.

If you say so :)

SWATH 2 isnt happening.
Lie Down In Darkness isnt happening.
Focus isnt happening because Affleck will have nothing to do with her, and she was 2nd or 3rd choice for that one as it was.
and now she has a supporting role, for a type casted character, in a film that doesnt even have any financial backing.

RIP Kristen's career, lol.

It's dead but I think she's still got some time to recover. She'll probably get a lucky break late this year or next.

If she gets Snow White 2 then she has a chance. Her team can convince others again that they should cast her because she's so "great" at boxoffice. But without it why should they cast her if they can get Mara or Lawrence?

Or Emma Stone, or Mia W or Carey Mulligan or Emma Watson or Juno Temple or Emily Browning even etc, etc, etc

1. this film doesnt even have financing yet. she cant land a backed production to save her life. she's been without work for over a year now.
2. she's not branching out, she literally has no options aside from who will hire her.
3. and ya, really branching out, playing the oversexed young girl AGAIN.

but stay delusional, bb, if you think her career isn't completely in the shitter.
