Kristen Stewart has found her post-Snow White and the Huntsman role, agreeing to star in the LA-based gritty actioner Cali.
Michael Diliberti (“30 Minutes or Less”) wrote the script, which follows Mya (Stewart) and Chris, a pair of San Fernando Valley lovebirds with a penchant for bad choices and dangerous behavior. After selling a fake snuff film featuring Mya, they ride off into the sunset with a bundle of cash. Years later, Mya must “return from the dead” to save the younger sister she left behind in Cali, where the young couple contends with angry former business partners, homicidal porn stars, stoner vet techs, an unstoppable killing machine in a cowboy hat and their own contentious relationship.
The film will also mark Kristen’s first producing credit. Says executive producer Craig J. Flores (300) on the casting:
“Kristen is a talented and dynamic actor, with a proven box office draw,” said Flores. “Her role in ‘Cali’ will be edgy and sexy. It will no doubt push the envelope on the public’s view of Kristen’s wide-ranging abilities. Voltage is thrilled to have her as a partner on this fantastic film.”
Producers are currently in the process of finding a director and fleshing out the cast, as they anticipate a late-Summer production start. Are you excited to see Kristen in this new role?
