Kristen Stewart takes the lead in Cali

28 April 2012

She'll next be seen as the titular warrior princess in Snow White and the Huntsman and word is that Twilight Saga hottie Kristen Stewart has joined the cast of gritty action thriller Cali.

From the pen of 30 Minutes or Less scribe Michael Diliberti the film will see Stewart as Mya, a California woman who fakes her own death with the help of her boyfriend, the pair are described as "lovebirds with a penchant for bad choices and dangerous behaviour".

The film sees the couple sell a fake snuff film featuring Stewart's character Mya, and disappear with the cash. Years later, Mya must return from the 'dead' in order to save the younger sister she left behind in California.

300's Craig J Flores is set to produce and says of Stewart's casting "Kristen is a talented and dynamic actor, with a proven box office draw, her role in Cali will be edgy and sexy. It will no doubt push the envelope on the public's view of Kristen's wide-ranging abilities."

Stewart is also set to produce the film and while the hunt is on for a director and co-star, the plan is to start shooting at the end of the summer.
