Kristen Stewart in On the Road














Stewart will play Mya, a California woman who fakes her own death with the help of her boyfriend, Variety reports.

Described as "lovebirds with a penchant for bad choices and dangerous behaviour", the couple sell a fake snuff film featuring Stewart's character Mya, and disappear with the cash.

Years later, Mya must return from the 'dead' in order to save the younger sister she left behind in California.

"Kristen is a talented and dynamic actor, with a proven box office draw," producer Craig J Flores (300) said.

"Her role in Cali will be edgy and sexy. It will no doubt push the envelope on the public's view of Kristen's wide-ranging abilities."

Stewart will also produce the film, with a director and co-star yet to be named. Shooting is due to begin at the end of summer.

Stewart spoke recently about her role in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, describing her stunts in the film as "terrifying".

Along with Snow White, Stewart stars in Jack Kerouac adaptation On the Road, which has been selected for this year's Cannes Film Festival competition.

Snow White and the Huntsman opens on June 1 in the UK and US.

On the Road is released in the UK on September 21, with a US release date yet to be set.
