Kristen Stewart to Cameo in Her Mother's Directorial Debut K-11 (Collider)
When we spoke with Kristen Stewart way back in 2009, she talked about starring in her mother Jules Stewart‘s directorial debut K-11. Her description of the role:
“I play a young girl who is not a girl. Her name is Butterfly. She’s autistic and that’s it. That’s Butterfly.”
As enticing as that sounds, Stewart’s schedule got crazy, so she is no longer Butterfly. However, E! learned that the Twilight star will appear in the movie, albeit in a very minor capacity—what Jules Stewart calls a “micro-cameo.” You’ll hear her voice as the secretary of “a dissipated record producer (Goran Visnjic), who finds himself locked up in L.A. County’s notorious K-11 unit, which specializes in special protection for LGBT inmates.” Older brother Cameron Stewart will also appear in a role credited on IMDB as “Sledgehammer.” This movie will be freaky.
Extract from Collider's interview with Kristen in 2009:
Kristen, your mom will direct you in an upcoming project. Can you talk about that?
STEWART: I've worked on the script with her a little bit so we have delved into it, in that sense of just writing. It's called K-11. This year for me has gotten really insane and absolutely psychotic. But, hopefully, next year, maybe in January, that's when we hope to do the movie. It's about a dorm that isn't widely known called K-11 that is located in L.A. County Jail. It's specifically for people that can't be put into general population and they need to be protected because they would be subject to a lot of danger. They're an eclectic bunch of people. There are famous people, gay people, cross-dressers, trannies and it's a story about a guy who finds himself in that dorm and he integrates himself into this hierarchy and then breaks out of it a couple of weeks later and it's just about that two weeks of his life in this world of really sort of damaged but functioning family of people.
Who do you play?
STEWART: I play a young girl who is not a girl. Her name is Butterfly. She's autistic and that's it. That's Butterfly.
