Nick Cassavetes will direct the previously announced Kristen Stewart in the upcoming romantic action comedy Cali.

The Michael Diliberti penned script follows a young San Fernando couple who sell a fake snuff film to make some quick cash. Years later, the woman who supposedly "died" on film must return to her hometown to save her younger sister from trouble. Complications thus ensue.

Producer Zev Foreman had this to say about Nick Cassavetes boarding the project.

"Nick's the perfect director for this gritty, L.A.-based story and will smartly balance the dynamic action with a true love story. Nick's record of working with top talent continues here in his collaboration with Kristen Stewart."

The film is set for a late summer start date.
