Momento Films has confirmed to fansite ItsOktobeYOU that Kristen Stewart will be starring alongside Jullianne Moore in "Still Alice." The movie is a film adaptation of Lisa Genova's novel. “Still Alice” is scheduled to start shooting New York mid-February. CAA is representing the film in the U.S. while Memento Films Intl. handles world sales.
The project is a Lex Lutzus and James Brown production in association with Killer Films. “Still Alice” is fully financed by BSM Studio, the newly launched one-stop-shop financing venture formed between Paris-based Backup Media and Marie Savare.
Moore will portray a cognitive psychologist who faces the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
“Still Alice” has been translated into more than 25 languages and is the writing debut of Genova, who holds a doctorate in neuroscience from Harvard U.
Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland are on board to direct the adaptation. The duo also directed and wrote “The Last of Robin Hood,” which recently launched at the Toronto Film Festival, and “Quinceanera.”
Kristen is set to play Lydia, Alice youngest child.
Last year ELLE interviewed Kristen Stewart, and being a beauty interview the discussion naturally turned to hair. Back then she told us that her next experimental hairstyle would be cornrows, the exact hairstyle she debuted at the Sundance film festival this weekend,
You see Stewart isn’t afraid of experimenting with her hair for the sake of her art, 'I’m pretty much open to anything – if I really loved the part I’d do anything. You know, hair grows, relatively speaking it doesn’t take that long in exchange for a good experience so I think it’s worth it,”' she told ELLE UK. 'I’ve been blonde, dark, I’ve had reddish hair, short, long. I run the gamut, you know”'.
Despite her dedication to the cause, in her own time she prefers low-commitment styles that aren’t so try-hard.
'Last year everyone started shaving the side of their head. I’m shooting for a couple of days in New York but then at the end of November I’m done for the year. I’m going to get a couple of tight cornrows put in. It almost gives the impression of no hair so I’m stoked about that,' said the star. 'I think a shaved head is a little forced, but the cornrows gives you the effect without the commitment.'
Princess Kristen thanks you for your time and wishes you a happy Monday.
