Nothing’s more dangerous than a stoned cold killer. Jesse Eisenberg & Kristen Stewart in American Ultra 8/21!

So I’m thinking the pitch meeting went something like this,

Writer: “…ok imagine Pineapple Express meets The Long Kiss Goodnight.”

Studio Exec: “The Long Kiss, it that a foreign film?”

Writer: “No, it was an action-spy film starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson”

Exec: “We can’t afford Sam Jackson.”

Writer: “That’s ok, we haven’t asked him. But I’ve got Jesse Eisenberg attached to this. You know, he was nominated for Best Actor in the Social Network.”

Exec: “…But he didn’t win the Oscar?”

Writer: “I also have Kristen Stewart, from the Twilight films?”

Exec: “Great! Lets do it. What’s the title again?”
