Kristen Stewart to star in two indie films

Kristen Stewart must be trying to keep a low profile seeing that two of her upcoming films are independent releases. She was originally supposed to co-star with Ben Affleck in Focus but she later dropped out of the film shortly after Affleck dropped. She is also set to film the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman at some point, but the film still has no director so that apparently isn't in a huge rush.

Stewart will play a young woman who joins the military to escape a small town in Camp X-Ray. Her character is stationed at Guantanamo Bay and develops a relationship with a male prisoner only to later be abused and hated by Muslim men in her charge. Peter Sattler wrote the project and is making his directorial debut. Filming is set to begin later this year.
She will also star in Sils Maria where she will co-star with Chloe Moretz and Juliette Binoche. The plot and characterization sounds confusing as director Oliver Assayas says Stewart will play an assistant to Binoche, an actress who becomes obsessed with a young actress (Chloe Moretz) who is playing a role who made Binoche's character famous. So I guess it would be like them relaunching Roseanne and Sara Gilbert had an assistant who was obsessed with the girl playing the new Darlene. At least that's what it sounds like to me. Filming for this one begins in Europe this summer.

Personally, and I have said this before, I quite enjoy Kristen Stewart when she is in her element and that honestly is independent film. I am curious about these movies and I am especially intrigued with Camp X-Ray. I think that sounds really interesting.
