Kristen StewartThere were only two possible directions for Bella Kristen Stewart to take in order for her to avoid being pigeon-holed for ever as that girl from the Twilight movies. One route was to star as a stripper in her next movie, the other would have been to marry Tom Cruise. And seeing as that last opportunity has passed, Ms Stewart has wisely gone for option one.

Kristen StewartThere were only two possible directions for Bella Kristen Stewart to take in order for her to avoid being pigeon-holed for ever as that girl from the Twilight movies. One route was to star as a stripper in her next movie, the other would have been to marry Tom Cruise. And seeing as that last opportunity has passed, Ms Stewart has wisely gone for option one.

The young actress is set to star in Welcome to the Rileys alongside James Gandolfini, a film that centres around a troubled teenager called Mallory (Stewart) who becomes a stripper and ends up reuniting a grieving couple.

As you can tell from the premise, this is no Demi Moore in Striptease type route for our Kristen but rather a powerful drama directed by Jake Scott with a debut set for the 2010 Sundance Festival in January.

Before you ask though, yes, Kristen did film several nude scenes for the film and, no, we don't know if any of them will actually make it into the final cut. No doubt we'll hear more about this film closer to its release in the New Year.

For now, take a look at these shots of Kristen from the movie...
