Following 2009’s Adventureland, co-stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart are set to reunite for the action comedy (or thriller?) American Ultra. The film will reportedly follow a lazy stoner named Mike (Eisenberg), living with his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart) in a small, unexciting town. But suddenly, there’s something to get Mike moving as his past catches up with him and he finds himself targeted by a government operation for termination.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Project X director Nima Nourizadeh will direct the film from a screenplay by Max Landis (Chronicle). If the plot doesn’t interest you enough, Producer Anthony Bregman says, “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.” Okay then.
Filming is expected to begin next April. Make sure to check back for more updates on American Ultra as they come our way.
