Kristen Stewart To Make Directing Debut With Short Film ‘Water’
Kristen Stewart will make her directing debut with a short film, titled Water, for the fashion and entertainment website Refinery29.
The news was announced Monday in New York during the NewFronts, an event featuring presentations from various digital platforms. The actress’s short will be included in Refinery29’s ShatterBox Anthology, a collection of 12 short films from female writers and directors. The plot of Stewart’s film, and whether or not she’ll also be appearing in it, has yet to be revealed.
Other famous women involved in the project include Chloe Sevigny, whose film Kitty will premiere at Cannes this month, and Gabourey Sidibe, whose short is called A Tale of Four Women. Both actresses will also be making their directorial debuts with their respective short films.
As Gossip Cop reported, Stewart expressed her desire to get into directing during a Vanity Fair interview earlier this year. “Oh yeah, I’m gunning. I really want that now,” the actress said about getting behind the camera. “I think that I’d be pretty good at getting people on the same plane and on the sort of train.” She added, “Yeah. I can’t f***ing wait.”
In front of the camera, Stewart has several feature films lined up for release in 2016. They include the sci-fi love story Equals, the thriller Personal Shopper, and the new Woody Allen movie Cafe Society, among others.
