In 'Camp X-Ray', written and directed by Peter Sattler, Stewart will play a young soldier who escapes her suffocating small town by joining the military, only to find that she isn t going for a tour of duty in Iraq as she hoped. She's sent to Guantanamo.
Met with hatred and abuse from the Muslim men in her charge, she forges an odd friendship with a young man who has been imprisoned at Gitmo for eight years, the Deadline reported.
The actress, who recently broke up with boyfriend Robert Pattinson, will then join French star Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz in 'Sils Maria', directed by Olivier Assayas.
Stewart plays the assistant to Binoche's character, an actress who becomes obsessed with a young actress (Moretz) playing the role that made the older actress famous when she was young. The film shoots this summer in Europe.
