Kristen Stewart to Play “Edgy and Sexy” Role in Gritty Action Film Called Cali
Move over, Bella Swan and Snow White. It's time to welcome Mya.
That's the character Twilight star Kristen Stewart will play in a gritty independent action film called Cali, described by The Wrap as a "sexy action movie with a little bit of comedy mixed in."
Michael Diliberti reportedly wrote the script with Kristen in mind for the role of Mya.
According to Variety, the script follows Mya 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 doesn’t have a director yet but they're anticipating a late summer start date.
"Kristen is a talented and dynamic actor, with a proven box office draw," producer Craig J. Flores said (via Variety). "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."
Another exciting note about the film? Variety says KStew will pick up her first producing credit on the project. She’s moving into the big leagues!
