Uma Thurman has a new role as THR reports that she is in negotiations to board the action comedy American Ultra. Assuming she does sign on, she’ll join the already attached Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart.
The film is about Mike, a lazy stoner (Eisenberg), who lives a quiet life with his girlfriend (Stewart). However one random night their lives change when something from Mike’s past surfaces. He then finds himself in the middle of a government operation that is trying to kill him. It’s not clear who Thurman will play.
Max Landis wrote the screenplay, with Nima Nourizadeh directing. Filming is set to begin in April.
