Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart to Star in Action Comedy Film AMERICAN ULTRA

Lionsgate has announced that production is set to begin today in New Orleans on the studio's action comedy film AMERICAN ULTRA. Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle), the film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Topher Grace, Tony Hale, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman and Walton Goggins.

American Ultra is a fast-paced action comedy about Mike (Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Stewart), is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.

A PalmStar/Likely Story/Circle of Confusion production, the film is produced by Anthony Bregman, Kevin Frakes, Raj Brinder Singh, David Alpert and Britton Rizzio, with Ray Angelic as executive producer. Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions and Eda Kowan, SVP of Acquisitions, will oversee the project on behalf of Lionsgate.
