Nick Cassavetes To Direct Kristen Stewart Action Flick 'Cali'

Crime, California and some unsavory characters? Yep, Nick Cassavetes has been there, done that before, with “Alpha Dog” and the director is going to get gritty once again in the Golden State.

Cassavetes has signed on to direct “Cali,” the action flick announced last week that will be co-produced by and star Kristen Stewart. Penned by Michael Diliberti (“30 Minutes or Less“), the story finds Stewart playing Mya, who pairs up with her boyfriend Chris to make a fake snuff film which they sell for a wad of cash before beating it out of the San Fernando Valley. Years later, she’s forced to head back to save her younger sister, but to do so she will have to face “angry former business partners, homicidal porn stars, stoner vet techs, an unstoppable killing machine in a cowboy hat” as well as keep a handle on her relationship with Chris.

So yeah, this could either be wild and ridiculous, or a well-honed little genre piece, but the hire of Cassavetes doesn’t inspire much confidence. His choices are…eclectic…to say the least, ranging from “The Notebook” (his biggest success) to the message movie “John Q” to the aforementioned “Alpha Dog” to stuff like “My Sister’s Sister.” Yet through all of it, he hasn’t had much of a directorial stamp. So we’ll see how this works out, and we suppose an intriguing cast could elevate this. Production is aiming for a late summer start. [Variety]

Mess. You Kristen fans are disgusting just like her. While Robert Pattinson is working with acclaimed directors, and movie stars, Kristen Stewart has to once again rely on a sexual role. Who is giving her these jobs? She has no talent, and her "independent" movies don't make bank at the box office at all.

It's sad that some of you have to resort to bashing Robert Pattinson. So insecure you all are.

this board cracks me up. monday and tuesday got into it, and friday is trying to be the voice of reason.

Friday

Why? always put in rivalry the work R / K , both have good movies to come Cosmopolis & On the Road both films looks very promising and the plots of 'The Rover' & 'Cali' ' looks resourceful & weird in a good way

Wow some of you are crazy (looking at A who fancies herself hall monitor).

This movie sounds like a disaster in the making. Cassavetes' work is all over the place, Stewart is limited (and that's being kind) and the plot sounds dumb.

Oh joy, another movie that will allow Kristen Stewart to bite her lips and mumble and be generally greasy and unappealing.

Michael Diliberti and Nick Cassavetes what a combo.
