Kristen Stewart's a busy girl. Today alone-while you were downing your first cup of coffee, or furiously finishing up your math homework, or even still hitting your snooze button (hey, we do it too)-she snagged roles in two super buzzy indie flicks. Impressive, especially since it's a Monday and Mondays are universally accepted as The Worst.

First up, she'll be reuniting with her Adventureland costar Jesse Eisenberg on American Ultra, an action comedy from the director of Project X. Details are vague (the movie won't begin filming until next April!), but what we do know is that Kristen will play Jesse's girlfriend who's awesomely named Phoebe (Kristen totally looks like a Phoebe, no?) and that they'll be involved in a government conspiracy of sorts. And that it will be funny because: comedy!

The flick's producer told The Hollywood Reporter, "Simply put, American Ultra will be the most fun you can possibly have in a movie theater without the use of drugs, fireworks, or canola oil." Sounds like...fun?

Kristen's also joining the cast of Anesthesia, a drama presumably about loss of consciousness, but that's supposition based purely on the title. Literally nothing is known about the project except that it's drawn lots of comparisons to Dead Poets Society, but that's based on the one-sentence announcement from the movie studio ("a group of New Yorkers whose lives are touched by the same philosophy professor"), so don't start shaking your fist in the air and chanting "O Captain, My Captain" just yet.
