Kristen Stewart Pic ‘Seberg’ To Roll Out In February Following Oscar Qualifying Run

DEADLINEEXCLUSIVE: After making its limited qualifying run this Friday, Amazon Studios’ Seberg which stars Kristen Stewart as French New Wave icon and FBI target Jean Seberg will have a platform release starting Feb. 21.

The noir thriller directed by Benedict Andrews and written by Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel, made its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival before continuing to TIFF, Deuville and the London Film Festival among many others.

Breathless star Seberg was the center of the FBI’s attention in the late 1960s because of her support of the civil rights movement and romantic involvement with Hakim Jamal (Anthony Mackie), among others. Seberg’s life and career are destroyed by J. Edgar Hoover’s overreaching surveillance and harassment in an effort to suppress and discredit the actress’ activism.

Producers are Fred Berger and Brian Kavanaugh Jones of Automatik, Marina Acton, Alan Ritchson, Kate Garwood, Stephen Hopkins and Brad Pilz.  Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel also executive produce.

Also in the mix this awards season for Amazon is Honey Boy which received four Independent Spirit noms including best director for Alma Har’el and Shia LaBeouf as supporting male actor (who wrote the feature based on his turbulent experiences with his father as a child actor). Amazon also has France’s official Oscar entry Les Miserables, the Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne reteam The Aeronauts, and Scott Z. Burns’ The Report which has a Golden Globe supporting actress nomination for Annette Bening.

Kristen Stewart to Star in TriStar’s ‘Happiest Season’ (EXCLUSIVE)

VARIETY – Kristen Stewart is in talks to star in TriStar Pictures’ “Happiest Season,” sources tell Variety.

The studio acquired worldwide rights to the pic from writing duo Clea DuVall and Mary Holland earlier this year. DuVall is also on board to direct, which would mark her directorial debut at the studio level.

Marty Bowen and Isaac Klausner will produce with Jaclyn Huntling overseeing for Temple Hill.

The film tells the story of a young woman whose plan to propose to her girlfriend while at her family’s annual holiday party is upended when she discovers her partner hasn’t yet come out to her conservative parents.

Hannah Minghella and Shary Shirazi will oversee the project for TriStar Pictures.

Stewart already has a good relationship with Sony, which owns TriStar, as she is currently set to star in the studio’s reboot of “Charlie’s Angels.” The movie is being directed by Elizabeth Banks and also stars Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.

In addition to “Charlie’s Angels,” Stewart has a handful of films set to bow in 2019 that include the Chernin movie “Underwater” as well as “Against All Enemies,” in which she will star as actress Jean Seberg. She was most recently seen in the Lizzie Borden film “Lizzie.”

She is repped by Gersh.

On opening up about her love life:

“I’m not ashamed, and I’m not confused. Things have changed. And not just with me—we’re really allowed to encourage this new acceptance to develop and be awesome.”


The fest also sets special screenings of Jim Jarmusch’s ‘Gimme Danger’ and Terence Davies’ ‘A Quiet Passion.’
Kristen Stewart and Adam Driver will be honored at the New York Film Festival, the Film Society of Lincoln Center announced Tuesday.

The two actors will be lauded during the annual “An Evening With…” events, which include a dinner and conversation with fest director Kent Jones. Driver, who stars in Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, will be honored on Oct. 2; Stewart, featured in three fest films (Kelly Reichardt’s Certain Women, Olivier Assayas’ Personal Shopper and Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk) will be honored on Oct. 5.

Additionally, Alex Horwitz’s documentary Hamilton’s America, which captures the phenomenon of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical, will make its world premiere at the fest, ahead of its PBS Great Performances broadcast on Oct. 21. Lonny Price’s Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened, a nonfiction account of Stephen Sondheim and Harold Prince’s 1981 musical-flop-turned-cult-favorite Merrily We Roll Along, will also debut at the fest. Both will be introduced by the directors and special guests.

Other special events include screenings of Jarmusch’s Stooges doc Gimme Danger and Terence Davies’ A Quiet Passion, which stars Cynthia Nixon as celebrated American poet Emily Dickinson.

The 54th New York Film Festival runs Sept. 30-Oct. 16.
