Kristen Stewart Joins Untitled Indie Drama With Michelle Williams And Laura Dern

Stewart steers clear of the studio machine once again.

"Twilight" star Kristen Stewart has joined the cast of indie filmmaker Kelly Reichardt's next film, an as-yet-untitled drama set in a small Montana town (aren't they all?), according to Deadline.

Stewart will play a lawyer from Idaho who takes a teaching job and befriends a woman who’s auditing her class, and the stories will be told in a series of vignettes. She'll star alongside Michelle Williams, Laura Dern and "Mad Men" favorite Jared Harris.

After finishing out the "Twilight" franchise and starring in "Snow White And The Huntsman" in 2012, Stewart has eschewed big-budget studio films, going the art house route. So teaming up with festival favorite Reichardt seems to be a natural fit with her new career direction.

Reichardt’s most recent directorial effort was the 2013 film "Night Moves," which starred Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning. Her new movie will premiere in 2016, according to Indiewire.
