Kristen Stewart’s ‘American Ultra’ Gets Release Date

Lionsgate has dated indie action-comedy “American Ultra,” starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, for Aug. 21.

The studio acquired the project last year before shooting started in New Orleans with “Project X” director Nima Nourizadeh helming from a script by Max Landis. Eisenberg portrays a stoner and Stewart plays his girlfriend in a small town with his life taking an unexpected turn when his past comes back to haunt him and he becomes the target of a government operation to wipe him out.

“Ultra” reteams Stewart and Eisenberg six years after they starred in Greg Mottola’s “Adventureland.” Producers are Anthony Bregman for Likely Story, and David Alpert and Britton Rizzio for Circle of Confusion.

Focus is opening “Sinister 2” on the same date.
