According to a report in Times of India Kristen Stewart's reputation may have taken a major hit among Twitter-fans after her cheating scandal but people within the movie industry are still willing to give her a shot, as she has landed a major film role by beating Jennifer Lawrence.

According to Vulture magazine, the 22-year-old actress landed a role in 'Lie Down in Darkness,' an adaptation of William Styron's gritty 1951 novel of the same name, Us Magazine reported.

She beat 'Hunger Games' star Lawrence for the role of Peyton Loftis, a young woman in 1950s Virginia desperate to escape the confines of her extremely dysfunctional home life.

A production source said that the buzz was premature.

"While it's exciting to see all the interest the project is generating, the film is still in the pre-production process. No offers have been made yet," a source said.
