In a ClevverNews exclusive, it sounds like the Twilight actress is tapped to star in an indie film alongside James Franco. She will play a character named Janie, while James will play a guy named Ricky. The plot: “The movie takes place around the time of The Great Depression. It all starts when Janie is forced to move in with a farm family after her grandfather commits suicide. But when the son tries to rape her, she injures him badly and flees the town unaware of whether or not the son is still alive. That’s when she meets the dashing criminal, Ricky, and the two embark on a journey across the country, as they must stay one step ahead of the law and two hired hitmen who are hot on their trail.”
From what we can tell, things don’t end very well for the duo, making it a very Bonnie & Clyde-esque storyline. For more details, watch the video below.
