The American Ultra cast continues to grow. A couple of weeks ago Uma Thurman joined Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in the movie, and now Deadline reports that Topher Grace has signed up too.
The film is about Mike (Eisenberg), a lazy stoner who lives a quiet life with his girlfriend (Stewart). However one random night their lives change when something from Mike’s past in the CIA surfaces. He then finds himself in the middle of a government operation that is trying to kill him.
Uma Thurman will Mike’s old CIA handler, who tries to help stop the G-men killing him. Grace meanwhile will be the bad gut, a recently promoted hotshot agent, who wants to prove himself killing our hero, which will wipe out a problem the government is facing.
Max Landis wrote the screenplay, with Nima Nourizadeh directing. Filming is set to begin in April.
