Kristen Stewart Is An American Girl?

ComingSoon.net recently spoke to actor James Woods about his hopes of casting Twilight Saga actress Kristen Stewart in the upcoming movie An American Girl. Woods is said to have spoken to Stewart about the role long before her vampire movies reached blockbuster status, and the actress is reportedly eager to get it made.
Woods detailed the movie's plot, saying:
It's about a young woman who is really destructive. It's that magical time right after you're out of high school. She was the top swimmer and dive champion in school. Now it's a year later and she lives in a little town in Indiana and the place is dying, she's working in a grocery store and drinking and drugging too much and she's showing off in front of this guy who likes her, and gets involved in a big sex thing with two guys drunk one night at a quarry. She gets taped doing it on somebody's phone and in a small town, her reputation is ruined and on a drunken whim, she joins the Marines, which is ridiculous. She starts to sober up and then she gets into the Linus Program because she's smart where they teach these women to speak Arabic. A tragedy happens and when she comes back to the town where she was a disaster, she rebuilds her life and finds through this tragedy a greater value in herself. It's a phenomenal story and a slam-dunk Oscar for her.
Sounds odd, doesn't it? Whether they're for a specific audience or not, Stewart seems to like smaller movies with more serious storylines — after all, she can't be the vampire girl forever. Lets just hope she'll showcase some of her supposedly hidden talent in this one.
