Seriously. In James Woods’ “An American Girl”. He has said he won’t make this film without Kristen playing the lead, so he is waiting for her.

Here is his synopsis of the role that may win her an Oscar:

“It’s about a young woman who is really destructive. It’s that magical time right after you’re out of high school. She was the top swimmer and dive champion in school. Now it’s a year later and she lives in a little town in Indiana and the place is dying, she’s working in a grocery store and drinking and drugging too much and she’s showing off in front of this guy who likes her, and gets involved in a big sex thing with two guys drunk one night at a quarry. She gets taped doing it on somebody’s phone and in a small town, her reputation is ruined and on a drunken whim, she joins the Marines, which is ridiculous. The ironic thing is that along the way she starts learning these values she doesn’t expect. They’re just values like you take your brother, they take care of you. It’s not like she’s a gung-ho Marine. She starts to sober up and then she gets into the Linus Program because she’s smart where they teach these women to speak Arabic. When they’re in combat situations, women in the Muslim world were not comfortable talking to men soldiers but they’d talk to the women soldiers so these women learned to speak the language and would ask if there were arms or snipers in the house. A tragedy happens and when she comes back to the town where she was a disaster, she rebuilds her life and finds through this tragedy a greater value in herself. It’s a phenomenal story and a slam-dunk Oscar for her.”
