Hollywood star Kristen Stewart is set to headline a new romantic thriller titled ‘Love Lies Bleeding’, which will be helmed by Rose Glass, the filmmaker behind the acclaimed British film ‘Saint Maud’. A24, which recently released “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” is backing the film with Film4, The Hollywood Reporter reported.
Besides directing the romantic thriller, Glass also co-wrote the screenplay with Weronika Tofilska, with sources saying the story centers on the extreme qualities needed to succeed in the competitive world of bodybuilding. In the film, Stewart will play the co-lead, protective lover of a female bodybuilder. The film will feature a romance fueled by ego, desire, and the American dream.
A24 will produce alongside Andrea Cornwell for Lobo Films and Oliver Kassman for Escape Plan Productions. Film4 developed the film alongside the filmmakers and will co-finance with A24. The filmmakers hope to cast the lead role in the most authentic way possible, with research currently underway.
Returning to Stewart, she landed her first Oscar nomination earlier this year for her role in the biopic “Spencer,” directed by Pablo Larrain. Before that, she starred in the holiday romantic comedy “Happiest Season.” (ANI)
