Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart set to reteam for Max Landis scripted action comedy American Ultra

Nov. 4, 2013by:

It looks like ADVENTURELAND stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart are about to have a reunion with the Max Landis penned AMERICAN ULTRA, from PROJECT X director Nima Nourizadeh. The action comedy would have Eisenberg "play an unmotivated stoner named Mike, who lives with his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart) in a small, sleepy town. One night, their lives take an unexpected turn when Mike's past comes back to haunt him, and he becomes the target of a government operation set to wipe him out." Sounds like fun, but producer Anthony Bregman seems to have even more enthusiasm for the project, saying:

"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."

A bit hyperbolic to be sure, but I do see potential. ADVENTURELAND was a highly underrated flick, although a lot of that had to do with writer/director Greg Mottola (SUPERBAD) than Eisenberg and Stewart. However, they were certainly both good in the pic and for Stewart's part it was hell and gone something better than her TWILIGHT work. Landis is still building off his success with CHRONICLE, but it's still up in the air if his follow-on work can match it. That said, with the collective talent involved, I'm game to hear and see more.

AMERICAN ULTRA is set to shoot in April 2014.

Eisenberg is turning out to be every part the character he played in the Social Network and I find him to be a good actor but a douche bag of the highest regard. There is no way this man can do action, he would look just as dorky and out of place as he did in Zombieland in terms of action that is

Good, I think Stewart is great and Eisenberg is alright too.

Maybe Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon, I thought they had good chemistry i Walk the Line.

What's underrated about Adventureland, it holds 88% on rottentomatoes. Didnt make a lot of money is the standard?

Loved CHRONICLE

I've liked Jesse Eisenberg in everything I've seen him in so far. Meh on Kristen Stewart but she's good in the right role. I'm willing to give this a shot.

Mike & Phoebe...really?

So are they going to play another version of Paul Rudd's Mike and Lisa Kudrow's Phoebe from Friends? That might light this up a bit.. though I doubt it

Doubt it

How can a movie starring the most boring actress in the world, THE WORLD, be the most fun experience at the theaters? Is Batman gonna roll up in Optimus Prime and kick Tom Brady in the face?

This sounds like about 75% of Jesse Eisenberg movies as in "hey, that might be fun, but it stars that dude who's been playing that same kind of prick for a while now, so no." Really getting tired of his Woody Allen as a sassy teen gimmic.
