Whew, have you caught your breath yet? The latest gossip report from E! Online is that the Twilight star and champion lip biter could step in to the action franchise if Angie backs out. Now, don’t get me wrong. I like K-Stew as much as the next gay gal. She has proven herself to be a very promising young actress. I just don’t think a single bone in her body screams Bad-Ass Action Star. Champion brooder? Yes. Kate Moennig look alike? Yes. Inexplicable lover of sparkly vampires? Sadly, yes. But cold-blooded professional killer? Yeah, no.
Of course, this is not to say she couldn’t step into the proposed role of a “young, ass-kicking assassin in the Fraternity” alongside star James McAvoy. On the plus side, we already know she looks great in leather. But lethal looks, not lethal acts are more her style.
The E! Online report says Angelina has dropped out of the sequel (which she would have appeared in in some capacity even though her character died in the first film) over money and scheduling conflicts. But hey, this is a franchise where super assassins have learned how to bend the flight of bullets, so anything is possible — right?
Of course, it’s also possible that the whole sequel won’t happen. Nothing has been finalized with the studio and no stars have been officially attached This K-Stew rumor is more than likely just that — a rumor to draw attention to a fledgling franchise that my or may not make it back to the big screen. But it sure was good for a laugh.
So, what do you think, is action star in Kristen’s future? Now, if by “action” you meant Bella drove a stake through Edward’s heart, then maybe I’d be on board.
