Jennifer Lawrence was “obsessed” with the part. Kristen Stewart wanted it “more than anything.” So just who has ultimately landed the role of Peyton Loftis in Scott Cooper‘s adaptation of William Styron‘s 1951 novel, “Lie Down in Darkness”? Yup, that headline gives it away – Stewart has reportedly grabbed the role of Peyton after years of both actresses making it known just how much they wanted to play the incredibly difficult role. Vulture reports that Stewart will lead the indie adaptation of the classic novel, with Crazy Heart director Cooper at the helm. The fifties-set novel centers on the Loftis family, perhaps one of American literature’s most revolting and damaged families ever put to the page. Led by Milton Loftis (an alcoholic with more problems than just the drink) and Helen Loftis (frigid and emotionally blind), the Southern family has two daughters – the crippled Maudie and the beautiful Peyton. And when the book opens, Peyton is already dead.
