Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart's career doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon.

K.Stew has been busy shooting a number of movies—Camp X-Ray, Sils Maria and pretty soon Snow White and the Huntsman 2 to name a few—and will now be starring in the upcoming action comedy flick American Ultra.

The actress will be teaming up with her Adventureland costar Jesse Eisenberg for the Nima Nourizadeh-helmed film, which is being produced by Anthony Bregman for Likely Story, and by David Alpert and Britton Rizzio for Circle of Confusion and will begin shooting in April 2014.

Stewart will play Phoebe, the girlfriend of an unmotivated stoner named Mike (Eisenberg), who live together in a small, sleepy town. One night, their lives take an unexpected turn when Mike's past comes back to haunt him, and he becomes the target of a government operation set to wipe him out.

"Simply put, American Ultra will be the most fun you can possibly have in a movie theater without the use of drugs, fireworks or canola oil," Bregman said.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the story.

E! News also learned that the actress joined the upcoming indie flick Anesthesia. She'll appear in a small role and will be shooting for a few days in New York for the Tim Blake Nelson film, which centers on a group of New Yorkers whose lives have been touched by the same philosophy professor.
