“I’m adapting a memoir. It’s called The Chronology of Water. Lidia Yuknavitch is from Portland. I love her novels but her memoires… it’s deeply personal to her. She’s in my blood and I knew that before I met her. As soon as I met her it was like we started this race without any sense of competition. I’m making the movie this summer but other than that, my only goal is just to finish the screenplay and hire a really spectacular actor: I’m going to write the best fucking female role. I’m going to write a role that I want so badly but that I’m not going to play.” KRISTEN STEWART, Festival de Cannes


Kristen Stewart Sets Up The Chronology Of Water As Her Directorial Debut. The Chronology of Water is the story of a lifelong swimmer-turned-artist, and explores the issues of sexuality, grief, and addiction. If that doesn’t sound like a perfect fit for Kristen Stewart, then we don’t know what is. THE PLAYLIST


Kristen Stewart Plans to Direct Bisexual Drama The Chronology of Water. With Stewart planning to kick off production on “Water” this summer, it shouldn’t be too long before she announces the actress who will play Yuknavitch on screen. INDIE WIRE

As a synopsis outlines, “This is not your mother’s memoir,” which perhaps makes it perfect for Stewart. NYLON
