We're excited for this one!

Kristen Stewart is all set to play fashion house founder, Coco Chanel in a new movie which will be directed by Karl Lagerfeld. 

The short film which will premiere at the Metiers d'Arts show in Rome in December will see Kristen depict an actress who is preparing to play Coco for a movie in the short film.

How meta. 

But it really is no wonder that there is a little twist as Karl Lagerfeld is known for producing the shock factor. 

Women's Wear Daily website reports that the film will be "a fictional, behind-the-scenes look at a yet-to-be-made biopic about founder Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel," starring Stewart as a young Chanel alongside actress Geraldine Chapline, who has also portrayed the fashion house founder in previous biopic films".

Karl, the creative director of Chanel, hired Kristen after she reportedly impressed him in the initial stages of the auditions. 

He revealed that the Twilight actress played the role "really, really mean". 

"You only see her in tests and she's complaining about everything. She's mean with the director, mean with the producer."

Kristen is no stranger to Chanel though, as she has modelled for some of their major campaigns, as well as sitting front row at many of their fashion week runway shows.

Mr Lagerfeld conceived the plot, dialogue, costumes and casting, also convincing Harper’s Bazaar editor Laura Brown to portray an American journalist.

“They make so many movies about Chanel, why can’t I make one?” he shrugged.

We think this is going to be interesting!
