Greek-American director Nick Cassavetes is on board to direct the gritty action film “Cali,” starring “Twilight” actress Kristen Stewart, Variety reports.
“Cali” is being produced by Voltage Productions and New School Media and is set to begin shooting towards the end of this summer. The film revolves around a couple from the San Fernando Valley in California who sell a fake “snuff” film for loads of money and run off together. A few years later, the girl (Stewart) must return “from the dead” to save her younger sister.
Producer Zev Foreman says Cassavetes is the “perfect director for this gritty, LA-based story, and will smartly balance the dynamic with a true love story.”
Cassavetes is widely known for directing romance film “The Notebook” as well as the crime flick “Alpha Dog.”
