Kristen Announces New Role on Oprah

If you want to wait for the show to find out, please stop reading...NOW!! :)


The big Kristen Stewart-related news of the week is that "Breaking Dawn" has, at long last, been gifted with a release date. But a smaller, though no less intriguing, nugget of KStew-y goodness dropped on Wednesday (May 5), when the 20-year-old actress paid a visit to "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
Stewart is attached to the long-gestating adaptation of "On the Road," the seminal 1957 novel by Jack Kerouac that came to define the Beat Generation, according to USA Today.

"I am very much attached to a movie that has been trying to get made forever," she told the paper while in Chicago for the "Oprah" taping. "Not that this is going to help it, but maybe I can just brag a little bit. I am super excited about it, too. I am about to play Marylou in 'On the Road.' So that's a big deal."

Marylou is the wife of Dean Moriarity, the disaffected drifter at the center of Kerouac's book. "Tron Legacy" star Garrett Hedland is reportedly set to play Moriarity, while little-known British actor Sam Riley will play Sal Paradise, Kerouac's narrator and Moriarity's worshipful, cross-country driving buddy. Walter Salles ("The Motorcycle Diaries") has been tapped as director.

USA Today reports that the film is gearing up to start filming this summer, after filmmakers like Gus Van Sant and Francis Ford Coppola have tried for years to adapt Kerouac's film for the big screen. The summer shoot should end well in advance of the start of filming on "Breaking Dawn" this fall. The final film in the "Twilight" franchise will hit theaters on November 18, 2011.
