Snow White and the Huntsman’s Kristen Stewart has signed on to play the lead in Cali, an ultraviolet drama that’s reminiscent of films like True Romance and Bonnie and Clyde.
According to Variety, the plot of Cali concerns a couple who decide to make a chunk of money by producing and selling a fake snuff film (a motion picture genre that depicts the actual murder of a person or people); of course, their plan backfires and before they know it, they find themselves mixed up with homicidal porn stars, dangerous businessmen, stoner vet techs and an unstoppable killing machine in a cowboy hat.
Cali comes from the mind of Michael Diliberti, a rising screenwriter responsible for writing 30 Minutes or Less. Diliberti has recently been hired by Todd Phillips (The Hangover II), Seth Gordon (The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters) and directing duo John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (Crazy Stupid Love) for screenwriting work. In addition, Diliberti has just sold his script for Little White Corvette, which Easy A’s Emma Stone is supposedly starring in.
