In the Land of Women: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Panic Room star Kristen Stewart has signed to join Meg Ryan and Adam Brody in In the Land of Women for Warner Independent Pictures and Castle Rock Entertainment.
Jonathan Kasdan is making his directorial debut on the film, described as a bittersweet comedy. It centers on a Los Angeles screenwriter who heads to the suburbs of Michigan to recover from a breakup. Once in the Midwest, he begins having a relationship with a mother and daughter (Ryan and Stewart) who live across the street.
Shooting starts early next year on the project from a script by Kasdan. By then, Stewart will be segueing from her role opposite Tim Robbins and Dax Shepard in Columbia Pictures' Zathura for director Jon Favreau.
