That Kristen Stewart is a wily one: Every time we turn around, she's either climbing aboard or jumping ship on one movie or another! Just today, we've got a report that she's said goodbye to her role in the heist flick "Focus"—the second film she's bowed out of in a year. (She also gave up her part in the action movie "Cali," which vanished from the Hollywood radar after her departure.)
For fans of the actress, it's getting the teensiest bit difficult to keep tabs of where and when we'll next see her on the big screen...which is why we, who are experts at tracking Kristen in her natural habitat, have put together this little list of her upcoming projects.
FROM MTV NEWS: Now that Emma Watson and her "Bling Ring" have ransacked Hollywood (and MTV's Sneak Peek Week), the posh French Riviera seems a fitting next stop on their itinerary.
The Cannes Film Festival announced today that the Sofia Coppola-directed crime caper will open Un Certain Regard 2013.
Inspired by an actual group of young bandits who burgled Tinseltown's rich and famous, "The Bling Ring" opens stateside June 14.

Things are getting pretty horny on the just-released "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack sampler.
First off, we need to remind you that Jay-Z is overseeing it. And he’s enlisted the help of Beyoncé, Gotye, Fergie, Florence and the Machine, will.i.am and Lana Del Ray (among others). So, this soundtrack is obviously poised to be one of director Baz Luhrmann’s greatest album hits. And that's saying a lot considering the soundtracks for "Romeo + Juliet" and "Moulin Rouge!" are pretty stellar and unforgettable. “Elephant Love Song Medley,” anyone?
If you liked seeing Kristen Stewart suit up in medieval armor and speak with an English accent in last year's gothic-awesome fairytale reboot of "Snow White and the Hunstman," then you're gonna like the heck out of this: Universal has officially confirmed that the actress will star in the film's sequel, which is very definitely in development for the coming year. Just Jared has the direct scoop from studio chairman Adam Fogelson, who announced the news yesterday at CinemaCon.
The announcement comes on the heels of much speculation about Kristen having been dropped from the sequel last year—a rumor that persisted despite repeated reminders from basically everybody involved that it was all a bunch of horse biscuits. (Director Rupert Sanders, on the other hand, will not be returning.)
Break out your pitch pipe: A sequel to everyone's favorite a cappella comedy has been greenlit by Universal Pictures.
Just days after Rebel Wilson and co-stars Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Ben Platt, Brittany Snow and Utkarsh Ambudkar pitch-slapped us with a brand-new musical mash-up at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, the studio behind "Pitch Perfect" has announced that a cinematic follow-up is slated for 2015.
Now, there's no word yet which stars will return for "Pitch Perfect 2," but with writer Kay Cannon in place, we have high hopes that this flick will be as aca-awesome as the first. But just in case you're a bit dubious, here are the Barden Bellas to demonstrate how you should (and shouldn't) react to this news.
After hearing so much talk of shenanigans on the set of "The Hunger Games," we thought for sure that the newbies in the "Catching Fire" cast would be in for some major hazing at the hands of their fellow tributes (particularly Jennifer Lawrence, whose goat-getting abilities are legend for obvious reasons). But when we caught up with Alan Ritchson, who joined the cast this year as career tribute Gloss, he had nothing but good things to say about his experience making the film.
"No hazing, fortunately," he said, laughing. Instead, he described "Catching Fire" as a great place to be, adding, "But to be a part of that, it was pretty cool. Jennifer's star just continued to rise, even through production...it was just cool to be there."
Ashley Tisdale is no stranger to making us LOL. Look at her work in any of the "High School Musical" flicks for some prime examples of her comedic abilities. But, the singer/actress admitted to us at the premiere of "Scary Movie 5" in L.A. last week that this flick reveals a very different funny side of The Tis.
"I've always been big fan of the movies, and it's such a different type of comedy than I'm used to, so I was super excited just to be a part of it," she explained.
Ashley was joined by a number of surprising folks in the film, including Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, as well as Mike Tyson and Jerry O’Connell who—wait for it—spoof “Fifty Shades Of Grey.” (We think you can figure out who is taking on the Christian Grey role. We hope.)
With the Dauntless train rolling out of the station and production underway on the "Divergent" movie as of last week, there was still one very important question the filmmakers had yet to answer—and that question, of course, was Who's your daddy?!
Because despite the film already having begun shooting in Chicago, one important character had yet to be cast: Andrew Prior, the stoic and selfless father of heroine Tris, whose quiet strength makes him such an asset to the Abnegation faction (and such a cipher to his hot-blooded, action-craving daughter). But now, the Prior family tree is fully fleshed out! According to Entertainment Weekly, actor Tony Goldwyn is officially on board to play the role (and earlier rumors about Aaron Eckhart having been cast were, apparently, all a bunch of hooey).
If you're among the "The Hunger Games" fans who tuned in to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards and witnessed the debut of the teaser for "Catching Fire," your reaction to seeing the first ever peek at what's in store for Katniss, Peeta and the citizens of Panem come November was probably something like AAAAAAAAAGGGGHHHH *HYPERVENTILATES* *RUNS IN CIRCLES* *FLAILS OFF A CLIFF*.
...And that's okay! Because while the rest of us flailed and squealed our way into a concussion, a full-body cast and a lovely night spent behind bars at our local police precinct, MTV had a trio of experts (Erin Gross, The HungerGamesMovies.net; Kimmy West, Mockingjay.net; and Amie Bohannon, HGGirlOnFire.com) ready behind the scenes to offer the sort of eloquent, insightful, sedately non-flailing response to the "Catching Fire" tease that most of us could only have achieved through the use of a full-body straitjacket and a nice shot of horse tranquilizers. Check out the video to see our three cool-as-a-cucumber aficionados as they weigh in on their favorite things about the trailer—including Katniss' brave face as she stared down the barrel of a gun, a grim and grownup Prim preparing to join the revolution and the fact that we didn't see so much as a second of arena action. (No, really, this is a good thing! The experts say so!)
With everything from "Divergent" to "The Fault in Our Stars" to "The Hunger Games" franchise on Hollywood's to-do list, there's no shortage of YA book-to-movie adaptations for audiences to get super psyched about— but you'd better make room on your radar, 'cause things are starting to roll on yet another much-loved novel that's bound for the big screen. We already knew that an option was on the table for the first in Cassandra Clare's "Infernal Devices" series, but the latest news is this: per The Hollywood Reporter, the film has officially got its screenwriter on board!
"Infernal Devices" is the literary prequel to "Mortal Instruments," a series set in Victorian England that explores the world of the driven, demon-slaying Shadowhunters and the supernaturally gifted Downworlders with whom they have an uneasy relationship. Stephanie Sanditz, who also penned the script for an in-development movie adaptation of one of Meg Cabot's books, will helm the writing process.
What this means for fans: Even if the movie adaptation of "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" never sees a sequel (...are words we can barely write without sobbing), there will likely be at least one more movie featuring hottie Shadowhunters and age-old conflicts playing out against a backdrop of awesome urban grit to get excited for. Plus, corsets! Wheeee!
