For the last few months, Kristen Stewart has been rumored to be the director’s pick to take over for Angelina Jolie as the female lead in a sequel to 2008′s ultraviolent “Wanted.” While the “Eclipse” star says she can’t confirm or deny the talk, she told MTV News it’s a project she wouldn’t pass on.
“I mean, like, it’s weird to answer questions like this. The only two projects that I’m confirmed in now are ‘On the Road’ and ‘Breaking Dawn’ 1 and 2,” Stewart hedged.
But would she be into the assassin role if she were, in fact, being considered for the part?
“Yes. Definitely, as long as it was good and I mean, it’s really exciting to see [that could be an opportunity],” she admitted. ” ‘Wanted’ was a great movie, like, James McAvoy makes that movie different than most other action movies because he’s a real guy, and I feel like most action movies don’t have that. So if it had that [element], definitely. But I wouldn’t just want to be in a mindless, blow-up movie. I’m not into it.”
Since we were on the topic of the Hollywood rumor mill, Stewart also addressed gossip that had her making her London stage debut soon.
“People have been asking me that. That’s so weird. I don’t know where that came from,” she said. “I would love to. That’s also something that really intimidates me and I have no experience in it. But I would want to, definitely. I’m just not doing that right now.”
