Sounds like Kristen Stewart is going to be super-busy this summer.

The actress' post-Twilight career continues to look bright, with the 23-year-old set to join the casts of two upcoming films, her rep confirms to E! News.

Stewart will play a soldier stationed at Guantanamo Bay in the political drama Camp X-Ray, to be directed by Peter Sattler. The film's title is the name of the real temporary detention facility set up when the notorious prison first opened in 2002.

The Olivier Assayas-directed Sils Maria stars Juliette Binoche as an aging leading lady who becomes obsessed with an ingenue played by Chloe Moretz after the younger actress plays the role that got the elder star's career going. 

Stewart is slated to play the assistant of Binoche's character, a role recently vacated by Mia Wasikowska.

Production on both films is expected to kick off this summer.
