With "Twilight" now firmly behind her and a "Snow White and the Huntsman" sequel on the distant horizon, Kristen Stewart is turning her attentions to more indie fare. The actress has booked a role in Olivier Assayas' "Sils Maria," with Juliette Binoche and Chloe Maretz on board; and war-on-terror thriller "Camp X-Ray," to be helmed by debut filmmaker Peter Sattler.

Both films are scheduled to go into production this summer. In "Camp X-Ray," which shoots first, Stewart will play a woman soldier stationed at Cuba's Guantanamo Bay. 

In "Sils Maria," she'll make a supporting turn as the young personal assistant to Binoche, who plays an aging actress set to star in the play that once made her famous. Binoche's character is now cast as the production's older character, opposite a young actress (Maretz), taking over the iconic role. Stewart's part was previously filled by Mia Wasikowska, who dropped out of the film.
