Project X Is Getting A Sequel With A Pretty Obvious Title

21 May 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In an unsurprising move, a sequel to 2012.s Project X has been ordered because of the fact that the original made a ton of money off a nothing budget. But rather than breaking the mold with the title for the follow-up, those involved simply decided to name it Project Xx. Which, while pretty obvious, suggests that the raunchy comedy will pick-up right where the original left off. The Wrap were the first to report that the Todd Phillips-produced sequel is currently in pre-production. At the moment though we.re still not sure if either the film.s trifecta of stars (Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, and Jonathan Daniel Brown), its director Nima Nourizadeh, or its writing team of Matt Drake and Michael Bacall will return. However, the last details we had on the sequel suggested that Bacall had been asked to write a draft of the script. Project Xx has »

Project Xx Gets A Release Date

19 May 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It's already three years since director Nima Nourizadeh put the tricks of the microbudget found-footage horror trade to use on the teen comedy genre and came up with Project X. Polarising as the finished product was, a sequel has been talked about ever since, and Warner Bros. have now announced Project Xx's release date, along with arrival times for The Accountant and Arms And The Dudes.Not much is yet known about the hard-partying follow-up, outside the fact that original co-writer Michael Bacall has been working on it solo this time. No director is yet attached, and it's unclear whether Todd Phillips will return as producer. And given the time elapsed and the cast's advanced age, it seems unlikely that any of the first gang will be back - unless we ditch the high-school angle and put them in college or something. Even then, we'll be amazed if they get Miles Teller back. »

Eisenberg & Stewart on First Two Smokin' Posters for 'American Ultra'

14 May 2015 1:46 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Wowza. I don't know how the MPAA let them get away with this, but awesome, let me say that. I'm guessing the lack of any cigarette/joint makes all the difference. Two new posters and a first look photo have debuted for American Ultra, the new film from a script by Max Landis (of Chronicle, The Death and Return of Superman) directed by Nima Nourizadeh. Actor Jesse Eisenberg plays a stoner named Mike who, along with Kristen Stewart as his girlfriend, it turns out is a sleeper agent, and the government is trying to eliminate him. They definitely both look like stoners, with Eisenberg donning a wig, and Stewart dying her hair for the part, the only thing that really is missing is a joint. Take a look at all the new images below. Your first look at American Ultra from MTV, showing Jesse Eisenberg as Mike + Kristen Stewart as »

Kristen Stewart And Jesse Eisenberg Reunite For Genre Mash-Up American Ultra

14 May 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Judging by the first posters for Nima Nourizadeh’s genre mash-up American Ultra, Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart are a long way from the idyllic, low-key setting of Adventureland. For the atypical comedy, the stars will play Mike and Phoebe, respectively, two laid-back stoners who will act as the crux of Ultra‘s tale of love, lust and eccentric hair.

MTV debuted our first look at the dramedy, and the outlet also sat down to talk with Nourizadeh about the creative process behind the film and how it’s proven to be a difficult butterfly to pin when it comes to actually pitching the concept during marketing.

“You start with this kind of like sweet love story. I don’t want to turn people off with that, but what’s really unique about this movie is the fact that it’s like this kind of crazy action-comedy, but really at »

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Get High in First American Ultra Posters

14 May 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Our first look at Lionsgate’s action-comedy American Ultra has arrived, and the Adventureland reunion between stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg actually looks like it could function as a genuine sequel to Greg Mottola’s underrated coming-of-age drama. Written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis and directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X), the story finds a stoner (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend’s (Stewart) life disrupted when a government operation descends upon their small town with the aim of wiping the stoner out. The picture begins as a romance, with Eisenberg’s character aiming to propose to his longtime girlfriend, but it’s soon revealed that he’s actually a sleeper agent. While the movie definitely has an action bent, Nourizadeh explains to MTV that at heart it’s a love story: “You start with this kind of like sweet love story,” Nourizadeh said. “I don’t want to turn people off with that, »

First Picture and Posters from 'American Ultra' Starring Jesse Eisenberg & Kristen Stewart

Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart last teamed together on Adventureland and in they will be working together again on Woody Allen's next movie, but later this year we'll see them in their second project together, American Ultra, from Project X director Nima Nourizadeh. The duo play a pair of stoners whose sleepy, small-town existence is disrupted when his past comes back to haunt him in the form of a government operation set to wipe him out. Clearly, based on the first two posters for the film, the couple are a pair of stoners and Nourizadeh describes the situation to MTV saying, "His world just gets turned upside down and he starts to realize who he actually is," he continued. "For a lot of the movie, he's just like unaware of what's going on, why these people are trying to kill him, and he soon finds out. It's just this weird sort of entertaining, »

Jesse Eisenberg And Kristen Stewart Get High In New Posters For 'American Ultra'

This summer, "Adventureland" buds Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart are finding a new, uh, adventure, with "American Ultra." And in a much different tone from that aforementioned coming-of-age comedy, this one will find them as a pair of stoners who wind up on the run when the government puts their sights on them. The movie is from the director of "Project X," Nima Nourizadeh," and he tells MTV this is more than just a run 'n gun tale. “You start with this kind of like sweet love story,” he explained. “I don’t want to turn people off with that, but what’s really unique about this movie is the fact that it’s like this kind of crazy action-comedy, but really at the core there is this like romance and there’s this love story where all he wants to do is to propose to her.
