In the wake of the cheating scandal that shocked anyone with a Twitter account, Kristen Stewart has dropped out of her next film, the gritty drama Cali. Stewart was signed up to appear alongside Magic Mike‘s Alex Pettyfer but has removed herself from starring int he project. Read the details below (from the Huffington Post):
Both Variety and GossipCop confirmed that Stewart has dropped out of a leading role in “Cali,” a film directed by Nick Cassavetes and written by Michael Diliberti.
Stewart was set to star in the movie about San Fernando Valley lovers Mya (Stewart) and Chris (Alex Pettyfer), who sell a fake snuff film and escape with the cash only to “return from the dead” to save the younger sister Mya left behind.
GossipCop reports that Amber Heard has been asked to join the “Cali” cast, but it remains unclear whether Heard will take over Stewart’s part.
According to the film’s IMDb profile, Stewart is also credited as an executive producer. There is no word whether she will remain a part of the film in this capacity…
Stewart has kept quite a low profile since she issued an apology to Pattinson via People magazine in July…
Meanwhile, Pattinson has been camping out at friend and “Water for Elephants” co-star Reese Witherspoon’s Ojai, Calif., vacation home. He is scheduled to appear in his first post-scandal interviewswith “The Daily Show” (Monday, Aug. 13) and “Good Morning America” (Wednesday, Aug. 15).
On Tuesday, Sanders was photographed with his model wife, Liberty Ross, outside a deli in Los Angeles. TMZ reports that Ross, who has already seen a divorce lawyer, hopes to work things out with her cheating husband.
Hm. Is this a good move for Kristen Stewart, dropping out of a film over a personal issue, if that is indeed the reason she is stepping away from the film (duh, it totally is)? Or is it good that she’s taking some time off to fix her very messy personal life? Time will tell.
