Gold stars to Alex Pettyfer‘s team, as the actor’s possible involvement with the Kristen Stewart-starring Cali has hit the web just as the Twilight star cops to a (totally bizarre) affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director. You capitalize on that Google traffic, A-Petts!
Variety reports (via ComingSoon) that the Magic Mike star is in final negotiations to star in the Nick Cassavetes film, described as a “gritty action” film based on Michael Diliberti‘s script. Cali centers on a “pair of San Fernando Valley lovebirds” (Stewart and the role that Pettyfer is in talks for) who decide to make some big cash by making and selling a fake snuff film that “kills off” Stewart’s character, Mya. That great plan is derailed years later when Stewart’s character is forced to return to her hometown in order to save her younger sister and is, in the process, compelled to reveal she’s not dead and the tape was a fake. This, of course, leads to all sorts of complications with a supposedly wacky cast of characters who, I’m just guessing here, are not too stoked to learn that the snuff film wasn’t actually a snuff film.
Pettyfer recently turned in what is, hands down, his best performance with his co-starring role in Magic Mike, so moving on to something like Cali is a solid and obvious choice. The Internet screams are just a nice bonus.
