FIRST LOOK: New Orleans-Shot ‘American Ultra’

by Jordan McGuire on May 17, 2015


The Adventureland adolescent romantic duo is teaming up for the Nola-shot film American Ultra. Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart play pot heads who watch TV together and have plans to get married. Eisenberg wears a long wig in the film and fits the mold of the slacker stoner pretty well. He’s about to propose and WHAM! he’s a secret spy mega beast, and the government is trying to eliminate him? Prepare to see Eisenberg and Stewart go full on Jason Bourne in this film.

Hopefully we’ll hear some Velvet Underground and Lou Reed humming in the background in American Ultra. One thing that brings the Adventureland stars together is pot and bummer music.

MTV reports that director Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) has blended genres and we should expect to see action, comedy and romance. Nourizadeh is directing from a script penned by Max Landis (Chronicle).

The film opens August 21. Check out American Ultra posters here.
