Fierce People: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Evans and Kristen Stewart have joined the cast of Fierce People for Lions Gate Entertainment. Griffin Dunne directs, while Diane Lane toplines.

"Fierce" revolves around a woman (Lane) who, hoping for a better life, moves with her son into a world of wealth and privilege after the son has a brush with the law. When the woman is attacked, their new life is shattered.

Evans will play a handsome guy who is the golden boy of high society. His sunny exterior, however, is replaced by a dark side. Stewart plays his younger sister and the new boy's love interest.

Dirk Wittenborn wrote the script.

Stewart starred in "Panic Room" opposite Jodie Foster and in the recent "Catch That Kid." The actress, who is repped by the Gersh Agency, next can be seen in the indie feature "Speak." Evans' credits include "Not Another Teen Movie" and "The Perfect Score."
