Lionsgate announced filming is now underway on American Ultra, the action comedy from director Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and writer Max Landis (Chronicle). New Orleans is hosting the shoot.
American Ultra stars Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Topher Grace, Tony Hale, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman and Walton Goggins. Ray Angelic is executive producing and Anthony Bregman, Kevin Frakes, Raj Brinder Singh, David Alpert, and Britton Rizzio are on board as producers.
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.
