Magic Mike star Alex Pettyfer is in final negotiations to star in Cali alongside Kristen Stewart.

The story centers on a San Fernando Valley couple, Chris and Mya (Alex Pettyfer and Kristen Stewart), who decide to fake Mya's death by making a snuff film, before skipping town with loads of cash. Years later, Mya must return home to save her younger sister.

Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook, Alpha Dog) is directing from a screenplay by Michael Diliberti (30 Minutes or Less, Stop Loss). Kristen Stewart is also making her producing debut on the project, alongside Craig J. Flores, Zev Foreman, and Michael Diliberti.

Production is scheduled to begin later this summer, with Nicolas Chartier's Voltage Pictures financing.
