"American Ultra" Sells in Asia!! @Variety

Good news for "American Ultra"! 

Variety: Indie comedy “American Ultra,” starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, has picked up traction at the American Film Market with multiple market sales for Asia.

Apsara Distribution, IM Global’s pan-Asian rights buying and distribution division, acquired the film from FilmNation for Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam and India.

“Ultra” will re-team Stewart and Eisenberg five years after they starred in Greg Mottola’s “Adventureland.” “Project X” director Nima Nourizadeh is on board to helm from a script by “Chronicle” writer Max Landis.

Eisenberg will portray a stoner who lives in a small town with his girlfriend (Stewart) when his past comes back to haunt him and he becomes the target of a government operation to wipe him out.

Shooting is set to start in April.
