Kristen Stewart to Play Underage Hooker?

By: stallown3d / September 23, 2010

Kristen Stewart seems to be pursuing some edgy—and quite racy—film roles these days.

First there was her performance as teenage stripper Mallory in the drama Welcome to the Rileys. And Stewart is currently filming the upcoming film adaptation of the classic Jack Kerouac novel On the Road, in which she’ll play group sex enthusiast Marylou.

And now, a report has emerged that the Twilight beauty is eyeing a part as an underage prostitute in an upcoming Ron Howard/Brian Grazer project. Stewart has reportedly expressed her interest in the movie, which is still in its early stages and tentatively titled Little America. Described as a cross between Black Dog and Speed, the film involves a 16-year-old prostitute who inadvertently kills a gang member, forcing her to go on the lam. While on the run she encounters and bonds with a truck driver who’s hauling a lethal toxin.

While Stewart has noted her tentative interest in portraying the prostitute, Jonah Hex actor Josh Brolin has reportedly thrown his name into the “maybe” column as the truck driver.

Do you think K-Stew would make a convincing prostitute? And does this sound like a movie you would check out? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
