Having just debuted Camp
An individual close to the project tells The Wrap that Stewart, Alec Baldwin, and Kate Bosworth are all set to join the cast, with Memento Films International shopping the film at the European Film Market out in Berlin next month.
The film is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Lisa Genova. Courtesy of Amazon, here’s the synopsis for the source material.
When Alice finds herself in the rapidly downward spiral of Alzheimer’s Disease she is just fifty years old. A university professor, wife, and mother of three, she still has so much more to do – books to write, places to see, grandchildren to meet. But when she can’t remember how to make her famous Christmas pudding, when she gets lost in her own back yard, when she fails to recognise her actress daughter after a superb performance, she comes up with a desperate plan. But can she see it through? Should she see it through? Losing her yesterdays, living for each day, her short-term memory is hanging on by a couple of frayed threads. But she is still Alice.
Stewart will play Moore’s youngest daughter, who bonds with her mother during her illness in a way they never had previously.
Frequent collaborators Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer (Quinceañera, America’s Next Top Model) will be directing, with production set to start in early March in New York City.
Stewart is coming off the back of warm praise for her leading performance in Camp X-Ray, and has two further dramas set to be released this year. Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria sees her star opposite Chloë Grace Moretz, and she’s recently completed a small role in Tim Blake Nelson’s Anesthesia.
With the Max Landis-penned action-comedy American Ultra on the horizon, in which she’ll star opposite Jesse Eisenberg, along with Drake Doremus’ sci-fi/romance movie, Equals, with Nicholas Hoult, Stewart is continuing to keep her credits as diverse and promising as she always has, and Still Alice has all the makings of another film to look forward to from the young actress.
