Though Kristen Stewart’s personal life is apparently all anyone cares about at the moment, she also acts in movies from time to time. Stewart is set to star in the gritty action pic Cali, and director Nick Cassavetes has now settled on the male lead for the film. Per Variety, Alex Pettyfer has landed the role and will star as Stewart’s love interest in a story that takes place in L.A. and revolves around two San Fernando Valley lovers who sell a fake snuff film and take off with the cash. Years later, the girl (Stewart) must “return from the dead” in order to save the younger sister she abandoned.
In addition to starring, Stewart is also making her producorial debut on the project, which is set to start filming later this summer. Pettyfer was most recently seen opposite Channing Tatum in Magic Mike, and he also appeared in In Time, I Am Number Four, and Beastly.
