Kristen Stewart in talks to star in new film 'Underwater'

Kristen Stewart is in final negotiations with 20th Century Fox over a lead role in new film ‘Underwater’.

The 26-year-old actress, who has stared in recent pictures ‘Personal Shopper’ and ‘Equals’, is thought to in discussions to take the role as an undersea scientific member of the crew.

The upcoming adventure thriller, which will be produced by Chernin Entertainment, is set to be directed by William Eubank who is best known for his work with 2014’s ‘The Signal’.

Written by Brian Duffield with a revision by Adam Cozad, Stewart will take on a role as ‘Norah’ who appears as a courageous woman leading the fight against a life-threatening earthquake. With filming expected to start in New Orleans next month, Stewart is yet to confirm her involvement in the film and, with her desire not to be part of ‘a million bad movies’, casts some mystery around the picture.

Speaking in the past, Stewart said: “I’m a pretty obsessive person, which is I think entirely necessary. You have to be a little crazy to put yourself through something like that and actually make it happen. I was probably a little bit more controlling than I thought I would have been. My favourite thing in the world is when it feels like something starts to get up and walk itself.

“When something’s really good, and it’s rare – honestly I’ve made a million bad movies. Not bad, it’s just like sometimes they don’t come together in a way that feels miraculous and when they do, it genuinely feels like something is floating and you’re all sort of blowing on it to keep it up and it’s like, that fully happened. It’s so cliché, it feels like super pretentious to say this, but you genuinely feel like this vessel and you’re like, ‘That was sick, I don’t even know what just happened,’ and it’s just fucking real.”
