Kristen Stewart is currently busy filming the remake of Charlie’s Angels, but it won’t take her long to go back to her indie roots. The actress just landed the lead role in the unconventional holiday drama Happiest Season.
Stewart’s next project tells the story of a young woman who wants to propose to her girlfriend while attending her family’s annual holiday party. Her plan goes sideways after she discovers her partner never came out to her conservative parents.
Happiest Season will be directed by Clea DuVall, who also wrote the script alongside Mary Holland. She made her directorial debut with The Intervention in 2016, and this will be her first movie at the studio level.
It’s safe to say Stewart won’t start shooting her next project before she’s done with Charlie’s Angels. She seemed extremely excited about this remake before the filming started and explained this version won’t simply be an impression of the last one.
“The re-imagining is so grounded and well intentioned and really shows the way women can work together now. It tries to be warm and funny, but it lacks a kitch element that we have seen before that works so well,” said Stewart.
