Let’s begin by making things clear: Kristen Stewart is not, at the age of 24 and with 33 film credits in the past 15 years, quitting Hollywood. Stewart, however, wants to keep things unpredictable and is always willing to take a chance. “I would love to show people that I can do more than just be ‘Kristen Stewart’ in a different movie, in a different circumstance.” She notes her past role as Snow White in the big-budget fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman could be a jumping off point for a superhero role.

Olivier Assayas marks his return to the Cannes Competition tomorrow with Clouds Of Sils Maria . The director, who has oft had films in various capacities here, was last in the main category with 2004′sClean, and first appeared in the section as the writer of André Téchiné’s 1984 Rendez-Vous. That film starred Juliette Binoche who leads the cast of the English-language Sils Maria as an actress at the peak of her international career who is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous 20 years ago. But rather than reprise her own role, she is offered the part of the older woman her original character drives to suicide.
