Kristen Stewart and Elizabeth Banks have officially signed on for Steven Shainberg's THE BIG SHOE from AngelWorld Entertainment. The film is now being shopped to foreign studios at Berlin's European Film Market, The Hollywood Report confirms.

The duo join previously announced Jim Sturgess and Susan Sarandon fo the film that follows Nate (Sturgess), a gifted shoe designer forced to break free from a family who want to cheapen his art for their own commercial gain. Overbearing mother Irene (Sarandon) hires a psychotherapist and a 'muse' to lure Nate back to work.

"The Big Shoe provides the opportunity to explore a playful, romantic, sexy, intimate connection just as 'Secretary' did," director Steve Shainberg said. "The script combines eroticism and humor in such a unique way - where shoes are better than sex."

"This project has all the elements we were looking for to satisfy our financing model," AWE's Darby Angel said. "The script is strong, as is the cast and the creative team. It's great to work with an experienced and reputable producer like Lazar. The Big Shoe ticks all the boxes, especially as our investment criteria are non-negotiable."

Georgina Goodman, the acclaimed shoe designer from England, will design the footwear showcased throughout the film. Recently, Goodman designed a pair of wedding shoes commissioned by the Royal Mint to celebrate the Royal Wedding. Only eleven pairs of the to-die-for shoes were produced, with the first Gone to Kate Middleton.
