The new movie, called Equals, is an adaptation of George Orwell's classic novel 1984, and will be directed by Drake Doremus.
But it seems Kristen feels more than a little trepidation about the forthcoming project, which will begin filming later this year.
Speaking to the Associated Press, the Twilight star said: 'I can't believe I agreed to do it. I'm terrified of it. Though it's a movie with a really basic concept, it's overtly ambitious.'
'It's a love story of epic, epic, epic proportion,' she added. 'I'm scared.'
But Director Drake Doremus, who worked with Jennifer Lawrence on the 2011 film Like Crazy, clearly doesn't share Kristen's worries.
'It became evident in my head that Nick and Kristen would have great chemistry', Drake told Associated Press.
Of course, any romance between Kristen Stewart and Nick will stay firmly on screen, since Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, who star in the X-Men movies together, rekindled their romance back in July 2013 after a short hiatus. Although the young starlets have kept their romance under wraps since then, anyone that saw Jennifer plant a huge kiss on Nicholas's lips at the Golden Globes, will be in no doubt that these two are a solid Hollywood couple.
'I trust Drake's process and I know we will do something really natural and real,' Kristen said. 'But I told Drake, 'Don't expect that I am going to be able to do this. It's too hard.' But he wouldn't take 'no' for an answer. I've given directors disclaimers before, but never this much.'
Kristen, we know you'll be great. Especially with the wonderful Nicholas Hoult on board… yummy.
