Ashley Greene is going ’80s in the new decade. Fresh photos from her upcoming 2010 Sundance flick, “Skateland,” show the “Twilight” vampire rocking headbands, bangs and retro duds in this story set in a dusty Texas town nearly three decades ago.
The 22-year-old actress plays Michelle Burkham, a seemingly carefree teen who likes to hang with friends, knock back drinks and go skating at the local rink. Teenage complacency, of course, can only shield you for so long, and Michelle, her brother (Heath Freeman), local loathrio (Taylor Handley) and rink manager (Shiloh Fernandez) must contend with some very real—and violent—truths.
“Skateland” has been selected as one of 16 films (out of a submission pool of 1,058) to compete in Sundance’s U.S. Dramatic Competition. Guess who else is in that category? Ashley’s “Twilight” franchise co-star Kristen Stewart, who portrays a stripper in “Welcome to the Rileys.” Ashley will also battle the likes of Ryan Gosling (“Blue Valentine”), James Franco (“Howl”) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“Hesher”).
