Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are reuniting.
The “Adventureland” co-stars are on board for a new action-comedy entitled “American Ultra,” about a lazy stoner named Mike (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart) whose sleepy lives are turned upside down when his past comes back to haunt him in the form of a shady government operation designed to wipe him out. Written by Max Landis (“Chronicle”) and to be directed by Nima Nourizadeh (“Project X”), the film – which is set to begin shooting next April – will be peddled at the forthcoming American Film Market.
Stewart’s upcoming slate includes the indie Guantanamo drama “Camp X-Ray,” Oliver Assayas’s “Sils Maria” co-starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Juliette Binoche, “The Big Shoe” with Elizabeth Banks and Jim Sturgess and a small role in Tim Blake Nelson’s next directorial effort “Anesthesia.” Eisenberg, meanwhile, has Kelly Reichardt’s “Night Moves” co-starring Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard and the Richard Ayoade comedy “The Double” opposite Mia Wasikowska headed for release.
