Kristen Stewart - Post-Breakup Kristen Stewart Bags Two Lead Roles

Kristen Stewart, star of the Twilight franchise, has landed herself lead roles in political drama Camp X-Ray, and Swiss-set Sils Maria.

The 23 year-old actress, best known for her lead role as Bella Swan in the recently-ended Twilight saga, has been confirmed for the two indie films, set to shoot back-to-back this summer, according to

After reportedly having split in May from on-off boyfriend and fellow Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, who she met on the set of the first Twilight movie in 2008, it seems K-Stew is keeping her mind off the split by staying busy with new projects.

Camp X-Ray, named after part of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba that has now been shut down, will follow Stewart as a small-town girl who enlists in the army, only to be based at Guantamano where she is met with hatred from the Muslim detainees but befriends a young man who has been imprisoned for 8 years.

Sils Maria, directed by Oliver Assayas, will explore "middle age and that introspective period where one questions how they've spent their life so far and what they've accomplished." Kristen will play an assistant to Juliette Binoche in the Swiss town from which the film takes its title.

49 year-old Binoche, known for her role alongside Johnny Depp in French flick Chocolat, will play an ageing, introspective actress who becomes obsessed with a young actress, played by Chloe Moretz (Kickass), who is playing the very same role that made Binoche's character famous when she was young.

Rumours also abound for a sequel to 2012's Snow White and The Huntsman, but this could be precarious territory for K-Stew if she wants to make up with Pattinson - she was previously snapped during a secret affair with Snow White director Rupert Sanders.

It seems LA-born Stewart is trying to move away from her fantasy blockbuster reputation: marking a departure from the big budgets by lining up a string of indies. Can she really leave her vampires behind her though?
