So, can Kristen Stewart succeed where her "Twilight" buddy Taylor Lautner failed? She's going to give it a shot as she's lining up an action movie to call her own.

Variety reports that Stewart will the lead the cast of "Cali,"an indie action flick that is still looking for a director. Penned by Michael Diliberti ("30 Minutes or Less"), the story finds Stewart playing Mya, who pairs up with her boyfriend Chris to make a fake snuff film which they sell for a wad of cash before beating it out of the San Fernando Valley. Kids these days. Years later, she's forced to head back to save her younger sister, but to do so she will have to face "angry former business partners, homicidal porn stars, stoner vet techs, an unstoppable killing machine in a cowboy hat" as well as keep a handle on her relationship with Chris.

Frankly, it sounds like every low rent '90s indie movie that came out in the post-Tarantino wave with a sun-baked setting and a bunch of wacky characters ping-ponging against each other. However, Stewart is producing the pic (her first one), so we presume there is some other element to the material that is attracting her to the gig. Production on "Cali" will gear up to start in late summer, and now obsessive KStew fans will have something else to scrutinize other than "Snow White And The Huntsman." We're sure they're already dreamcasting the role of Chris....
