It’s a It Girl showdown! Both Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart are becoming increasingly vocal over their desire to stare in the upcoming indie drama “Lie Down In Darkness”. Why is this little indie flick so exciting to the two twenty something starlets? Keep reading and find out.
The role that both Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence are fighting for is that of Peyton Loftis, suicidal daughter of the narrating father in William Styron’s edgy first novel, “Lie Down in Darkness.”The book traces the betrayals and infidelities–the heritage of spite and endlessly disappointed love–that afflict the members of a Southern family and that culminate in the suicide of the beautiful Peyton Loftis.
Here’s what K-Stew had to say in the June Issue of Elle magazine about wanting to play yet another depressed girl.
“I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life. I want to play her so bad,” “They’re the most [bleeped]-up family. There’s a script adaptation … and it’s good.”
Jennifer Lawrence, who is also fixating on this downer role described her feeling in W magazine.
“I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play … If someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right. I’m trying to write the director … to convince him that I should be in his movie. I’ll chase him if I have to. I’ll sit outside his house.”
Wow! Those girls certainly get excited over depressing movie characters. We hope Jennifer Lawrence gets the role, but only because she has more than one expression.
