There are a couple of soundbites from Kristen Stewart's June ELLE feature which are still making headlines to this day.

First, she told the publication she wanted "something crazy" to happen to her, and voila! She's found herself in the middle of one of the year's biggest Hollywood scandals. And now a second quote from her feature in ELLE has come to fruition... this time, very much in her favor.

According to Vulture, Kristen Stewart has landed the coveted lead role in "Lie Down in Darkness," the William Styron book-to-film adaptation she was gushing over to the mag. 

She'd told ELLE, "Have you ever read 'Lie Down in Darkness'? ... I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life. I want to play her so bad. Peyton is bright, beautiful, suicidal narcissist, preyed upon by her father ... Oh, dude, she f**kin' loves it! She's in love with him. I mean, I think she's in love with him. It's not his fault. They're the most f**ked up family! ... There's a script adaptation I've read, and it's good ... Two people vying for the part of the father are Daniel Day-Lewis and Colin Firth. Daniel would be perfect."

While people might've been saying "Be careful what you wish for" about the former quote, we revise to say "Wish for the right things is all."

Stewart reportedly beat out "The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence for the role, and filming is expected to commence this fall or winter with Scott Cooper on tap to direct.
