Kristen Stewart: Backing Out of "Cali" Role?

Posted Wednesday August 8, 2012 4:22 PM GMT

In the wake of her infamous cheating scandal, it sounds as though Kristen Stewart may be calling it quits on one of her upcoming projects.

According to breaking reports, it has been explained that the “Twilight” actress has dropped out of her role in “Cali” - a film she was not only set to star in, but also produce.

As a replacement, it has been rumored that Amber Heard has been offered the part, but, at this time, there's been no comment by reps for the "Rum Diaries" darling as ton whether or not she'll be taking on the project.

Aside from the fact that Kristen’s camp could not be reached for a comment, Voltage Productions (who are behind the film) declined to comment on details - though they did say that there will be an announcement of some sort made in the near future.

The Nick Cassavetes directed flick follows two lovers, Mya and Chris, who decide to return to Los Angeles to save a loved one from a group of unsavory characters. These events all come after Mya previously fled the area years before when she disappeared with cash she took from the production of a snuff film.
