Watch out Cheech and Chong, as a new comic is in the works. Kristen Stewartwho starred in several films from Twilight saga to SpencerShe was looking forward to getting behind the camera by trying her hand as a filmmaker. In a new conversation with idolRachel Sinnott of Interview magazine revealed Stewart has one project she currently has in the works. As Stewart explains, she’s co-writing a female-led comedy with her fiancé, Dylan Meyer.
“Dylan and I are writing a movie,” Stewart says. “It’s a great girl comedy, and it’s really dumb. I think you’re going to love it. But the reason I think of this is because our producer is our best friend. We’re starting a company. I’ve worked with a lot of people who haven’t I hadn’t known and loved them for a long time. It was definitely valuable, but also, that’s cool.”
Stewart did not reveal any additional details about the amazing comedy. This wouldn’t be her first foray into the film industry, however, as Stewart has also co-written the script for her upcoming film based on Lidia Yuknavitch. Water chronology. The project will mark Stewart’s directorial debut. Imogen Poots stars in this film, playing Yuknavitch, a role that Stewart described as a role she desperately wanted to play herself, but would direct instead.
“I’m adapting a memoir. It’s called Water chronology‘, Stewart previously said of her film debut at Cannes. Lydia Yoknavitch in Portland. I love her novels but her memoirs…it’s deeply personal to her. It’s in my blood and I knew that before I met her. As soon as I met her it was as if we started this race without any sense of competition. I’m making the movie this summer but other than that, my only goal is just to finish the script and hire a really amazing actor: I’m going to write the best female role. I’m going to write a role that I desperately want, but I’m not going to play it.”

In the Interview Magazine article, Stewart also addressed the approach she wants to take with her films. She wants to keep things on a minimal budget, admitting that major projects have made her feel “scared” lately. However, Stewart also explains how a big challenge that comes with this approach is that it makes it difficult to get bigger names who might want to get involved with the project.
“I’ve been freaking out about anything big lately,” Stewart said. “There is a strange hierarchy that makes me uncomfortable. This is the most corny, rote, predictable, absolutely true thing, but I just want to make Cassavetes. I want my first film to be a student film, even if it takes three years. I also won’t make A movie for more than $5 million, because it makes me feel uncomfortable and it usually sucks. But getting people to agree to do it is very difficult.”
Stewart will continue to work as well. She has several projects pending in development, such as playing Susan Sontag in an upcoming biopic.
