The film, written by Glass and Weronika Tofilksa, is described as "a romance fueled by ego, desire, and the American Dream," and will focus on the extreme qualities it takes to succeed in bodybuilding. Stewart is playing the co-lead of the film, the protective lover of a female bodybuilder.
If Stewart wasn't enough to attract sapphic viewers, the film is sure to have plenty of women with big muscles, something that lesbians love but rarely get to see in movies.
Crimes of the Future is a classic Cronenberg body-horror film about a celebrity performance artist (Mortensen) and his partner (Seydoux) who "publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances."
Stewart plays Timlin, an investigator from the National Organ Registry, who is obsessively tracking the movements of the artist. As she watches, she finds a group whose mission is to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.
The first trailer for Crimes of the Future just came out, and it looks bizarre and uncomfortable as all Cronenberg films. If this isn't your type of movie, hopefully Love Lies Bleeding will be.
In her personal life, Stewart got engaged to her girlfriend of two years Dylan Meyer last November. She revealed the happy news in an interview with Howard Stern.
"We're marrying, we're totally gonna do it," Stewart told Stern on his SiriusXM show. "I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. We're marrying, it's happening."
