by at . Comments

Following a week of craziness that saw an affair with Rupert Sanders ruin her relationship with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart has been added to the cast of Lie Down in Darkness.

The adaptation of the 1951 novel by William Styron tells the story of the dysfunctional Loftis family through a series of flashbacks on the day of the daughter Peyton's funeral. Stewart will play Peyton, while no other cast members have been announced.
