Ready to expand her career now that she's finished off her "The Twilight Saga" filming obligations, Kristen Stewart has reportedly lined up an edgy new role.

According to Variety, the 22-year-old actress will portray the lead character as a young woman named Mya, with the action flick being produced by Voltage Productions and New School Media.

Set in Los Angeles, the movie follows Mya (Stewart) and Chris, who are two lovers who sell a fake snuff film before skipping town with the bundle of cash. Having to return years later for family reasons, the pair must deal with a range of people who want them dead.

With plans to shoot this summer, Michael Diliberti of "30 Minutes or Less" fame wrote the script while the search for a director and Miss Stewart's co-stars is still underway.
