Kristen Stewart is one busy gal!
Fresh off the premiere of her Guantanamo Bay drama Camp X-Ray at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the 23-year-old Twilight star has signed on to yet another project and is set to star opposite Julianne Moore in the upcoming drama, Still Alice, E! News has confirmed.
Directed by The Last Robin Hood's Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland and based on the bestselling 2007 novel by Lisa Genova, the film centers on a professor of neuroscience (Moore) who becomes troubled when she discovers she's suffering from early onset Alzheimer's disease. Stewart will play Moore's youngest daughter in the forthcoming drama, which sees the two developing a deep relationship in a manner that was never possible prior to Alice's illness.
Kate Bosworth and Alec Baldwin have also signed onto the film, although their respective roles are currently unknown.
Maria Shriver will executive produce the project, which is reportedly set to begin production in early March in New York City.
Stewart most recently filmed a small role in the Tim Blake Nelson-directed drama Anesthesia, and she will soon be seen opposite Chloe Grace Moretz and Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Sils Maria (she was seen filming the flick in Berlin over the summer).
Robert Pattinson's former flame will also be teaming up with her Adventureland costar Jesse Eisenberg for the upcoming action comedy flick American Ultra, which will begin shooting in April 2014, in addition to starring in Snow White and the Huntsman 2.
And she recently signed on to star opposite Jennifer Lawrence's boyfriend Nicholas Hoult in the Drake Doremus-directed film Equals, calling the flick, "a love story of epic, epic, epic proportion," while admitting she's "terrified" to take on the role.
