Kristen Stewart and Elizabeth Banks Team for Erotic Comedy The Big Shoe

Secretary director Steven Shainberg is planning a new feature film that is said to blend comedy and eroticism. The Big Shoe, which was announced last year to star Jim Sturgess, has added both Kristen Stewart and Elizabeth Banks to its lineup, Variety reports.

Sturgess will play a shoe designer who, pressured by his family to give up the art of his trade and go into mass-production, is confronted by a muse (Stewart) and a pyschotherapist (Banks), both hired by his family to get him working again.

Stewart is best known for playing Bella Swan in all five films in The Twilight Saga. She recently starred in Walter Salles’ On the Road and in Rupert Sanders’ Snow White and the Huntsman. She is expected to reprise the latter role for a big screen sequel.

Banks, meanwhile, has her own beloved novel-inspired film franchise with The Hunger Games. She’ll reprise her role as Effie Trinket in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and is currently filming a new comedy Walk of Shame, in Los Angeles.

Andrew Lazar is attached to produce The Big Shoe with production beginning June 17.
