The Adventureland pair of Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are set to again star opposite one another in the action comedy project American Ultra. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Project X helmer Nima Nourizadeh is attached to direct.
American Ultra, scripted by Chronicle scribe Max Landis, follows Mike, a young stoner who, alongside his girlfriend, Phoebe (Stewart) becomes targeted by a top secret government operation.
Set to begin production in April 2014, American Ultra is produced by Likely Story’s Anthony Bregman and by Circle of Confusion’s David Alpert and Britton Rizzio. PalmStar Media Capital’s Kevin Frakes and Merced Media Partners’ Raj Brinder Singh are serving as executive producers.
