Kristen Stewart to try on Big Shoe

Kristen Stewart looks set to star in new dark comedy The Big Shoe.

The Twilight actress - who has been racking up movie projects following the end of the vampire franchise - has been cast alongside Elizabeth Banks, according to Deadline.

Jim Sturgess was already attached to Steven Shainberg's film, playing a "gifted shoe designer forced to break free from a family who wants to turn his designs into mass-produced knock-offs".

Kristen, 22, is due to play his muse, while 30 Rock actress Elizabeth will star as a psychotherapist.

Kristen is also set to star in comedy Focus, and she is thought to be reprising her role in the Snow White And The Huntsman sequel.

The film has been on the cards for some time but it wasn't known whether the actress - who hit the headlines last year when she admitted to cheating on her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson by having an affair with married director Rupert Sanders on the first film - would return. However, she is now thought to have signed up.
