kristen stewart's passion project k-11 to shoot this summer

Variety is reporting that, after struggling for two years to achieve financing, Jules Stewart’s long-awaited directorial debut, K-11, is finally set to begin production this summer, after the North American distribution rights were secured by Libertine Films.

K-11 has been in limbo for a number of years, and was developed as a starring vehicle for Kristen Stewart, who, despite there being no official confirmation, we assume is still on board.

Nikki Reed, however, Stewart’s co-star in the hugely-successful TWILIGHT franchise, who was attached to play the second lead role, has since dropped out, with Jason Mewes’ involvement also in doubt.

K-11 is a film that will focus on on two residents of a male prison: Mousey, a tattooed methhead transgender, and an autistic transgender named Butterfly.

With THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN: PART 1 and Walter Salles’ adaptation of acclaimed novel ON THE ROAD both due to be released in the fall, Kristen Stewart looks set to have a busy 2011, capitalising on the phenomenal successful of the vampire films.
