Hot off his starring turn in “Magic Mike,” Alex Pettyfer is in final negotiations to play Kristen Stewart’s love interest in Nick Cassavetes’ gritty action pic “Cali.”

Voltage Prods. and New School Media are producing the Michael Diliberti-scripted pic, which follows a pair of San Fernando Valley lovebirds (Stewart and Pettyfer) who sell a fake snuff film and ride off with a bundle of cash.

Craig J. Flores (“300”) and Zev Foreman (“Killer Joe”) will produce for Voltage, while Diliberti will also produce. His manager, Brian Levy of New School Media, will exec produce with Voltage co-owner Nicolas Chartier and Stewart, who will pick up her first producing credit on the project. Production is skedded to start later this summer.

Pettyfer, who previously starred in “I Am Number Four,” “Beastly” and “In Time,” is set to play a supporting role in Lee Daniels’ “The Butler.” He’s repped by WME and attorney Steve Warren.
