and are teaming up for indie comedy American Ultra. Written by Chronicle scribe and to be directed by Project X helmer , the synopsis reads as follows:

Eisenberg will play an unmotivated stoner named Mike, who lives with his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart) 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.

Eisenberg and Stewart worked together before on the sweet coming-of-age indie Adventureland and if they can recapture the chemistry they shared on that movie, American Ultra should be a whole ton of fun.

The movie's producer, Anthony Bregman, certainly agrees, offering this enthusiastic promo quote:

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.

That's a bold claim. There is a hell of a lot of fun to be had with drugs, fireworks and canola oil.
