Kristen Stewart faces down the FBI as Jean Seberg in new trailer

Kristen Stewart is set to portray the extraordinary life of Jean Seberg on the big screen.

In the late Sixties, Seberg was best known for starring as the American love interest in French New Wave films, most famously in Breathless. But she became a target of the FBI thanks to her support of the Black Panther Party and her affair with Hakim Jamal.

Seberg is directed by Benedict Andrews, from a script by Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel. Alongside Stewart, the film stars Jack O’Connell, Margaret Qualley, Zazie Beetz, Vince Vaughn and Anthony Mackie.

A release date for the film hasn’t been announced yet, but the trailer teases that it will be “coming soon” to select theaters.
