Kristen Stewart in Talks to Star in Wanted 2 2010-04-22 11:59:12

Kristen Stewart as an Action Star — Spot on or so Wrong?

Could Kristen Stewart be the next Angelina Jolie? May sound like an unlikely comparison, but word on the street is that Stewart is in talks to fill Jolie's badass shoes for the sequel to Wanted. Apparently the director wants the buzzed-about actress to play a new young assassin opposite James McAvoy.

Nothing's set in stone yet, but this would be quite the turn for Stewart. She's got the tortured emo teen character thing down cold, and I could see channeling her angst into something a little more badass (hey, it worked when she played Joan Jett!). Plus, her buddies Taylor Lautner and Kellan Lutz could give her a few tips on beefing up for the role. What do you think of Kristen Stewart as an action star?

Does she actually have the nickname KStew or are all the anonymous the same person? I voted no just cause I don't think she's a good actor, although I've only seen her in twilight.

Sigh. I hate anonymous comments.Anyway, steph, I agree, maybe she would kill the franchise, which would be a great thing! And, before I get jumped on, it's not that I think she's a horrible actress or anything, she just comes across as so mellow. (I honestly think she's high most of the time.) Yes, she was good at Joan Jett, but, that's a whole different type of role than that of an action hero.

@11 Jolie's character can't come back (don't want to spoil the plot) at least not in a normal way. Kristen has what it takes. She got the badass attitude (an amazing Joan Jett) and can do a physical role (runs like the wind and is very nimble, again see New Moon and The Runaways).
