Uma Thurman is in negotiations to join Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in Nima Nourizadeh’s action comedy “American Ultra” at Lionsgate.
Max Landis’ script follows an unmotivated stoner (Eisenberg) who lives with his girlfriend (Stewart) in a small, sleepy town. One night, their lives take an unexpected turn when he becomes the target of a government operation set to wipe him out.
Thurman will play a government worker who spearheaded a secret program to create sleeper agents. Now that someone wants to kill her creation, she will fight to protect them.
Anthony Bregman, David Alpert and Britton Rizzio will produce and filming aims to begin on April 14th.
