Kristen Stewart & Jennifer Lawrence gunning for same role in Lie Down in Darkness

Two of our most favourite film stars, Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence, are said to be going for the same role in upcoming flick Lie Down In Darkness. NIGHTMARE.

"I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life," Kristen told the June issue of Elle.

"I want to play her so bad. They’re the most f*cked-up family. There’s a script adaptation . . . and it’s good. Two people vying for the part [of the father] are Daniel Day-Lewis and Colin Firth. Daniel would be perfect.”

Jennifer Lawrence is also pretty keen to play Peyton, telling W magazine that "“I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play . . . If someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right.

"I’m trying to write the director . . . to convince him that I should be in his movie. I’ll chase him if I have to. I’ll sit outside his house.”

Have you read the book? Who do you think should get the part?
