Two of the effervescent leading ladies of Twilight are getting a makeover in their new film K-11 directed by Jules Mann-Stewart. Kristen Stewart and Nikki Reed are set to star alongside each other once again in the highly intriguing new drama written by Kristen's mother. K-11 is the dormitory section of the Los Angeles jail where the film's setting will take place. Both beauties will transform into men who struggle for sanity and self-preservation in one of the darkest places in the LA county jail system.
Jules Mann-Stewart has been a staple in Hollywood for over twenty years as the go to script supervisor. Mann-Stewart has worked on Jack Frost, Are We There Yet? and the musical drama Repo starring Paris Hilton. K-11 will be her debut as a director and has been working on the project for a great deal of time. This will be a dark film, on the complete opposite side of the Twilight spectrum, but from the buzz alone on this film, it could quite possible be award worthy.
Both Reed and Stewart will play men in this film which is a far cry from their flawless beauty depicted in Twilight, a bold and brave move for both these rising stars that has always been willing to take on the controversial roles and push their acting limits. Don't be surprised to see these ladies February 2011 on the red carpet of the Oscars looking to pick up some gold!
Another familiar face will be seen in K-11. You have seen him play the silly Jay in the two-part act Jay & Silent Bob but get ready to see the actor in a whole new light. Jason Mewes has signed on to play David, an inmate that wakes up in K-11 looking to escape. Famed actor, director, and writer Kevin Smith is also rumored to star alongside Stewart, Reed, and Mewes in the film K-11 set to hit theaters in 2010.
Over the past few months, both the Twilight beauties have been giving the press teasers about their upcoming movie and this is what they are saying:
Nikki Reed told MTV, "My character [named Mousey] is a male prostitute, and he goes in and out of the jail because it is comfortable to have a place to sleep and recoup and relax and have food and shelter — [when he] gets sent back out, there is a lot of underground drug stuff that is going on. [K-11] is a world in itself."
Kristen Stewart told MoviesOnline, "K-11 takes place in a dorm of the LA County Jail. It's like where you go if you can't be put into general population. So it’s full of eccentric, crazy, off-the-wall characters, and me and Nikki play two of them. Jason Mewes wakes up in this place and doesn't know where he is and tries to break out for two weeks. He tries to integrate himself into the community. It's a really sweet but really screwed up little family in there."
