Alex Pettyfer is packing his bags for sunny "Cali."
"Cali" tells the Tarantino-esque tale of Mya (Stewart) and Chris (Pettyfer), two lovebirds who skip town with a bundle of cash after selling a fake snuff film. Years later, Mya's quest to save the younger sister she left behind requires a return to the San Fernando Valley, where she and Chris must face a whole slew of freaks and psychos.
No word yet on whether they'll also be guided by a ghostly rock star mentor played by Val Kilmer.
K.Stew has been attached to the flick since late April, which means it's taken a few months to find just the right love interest for the "Snow White" star. Pettyfer had stumbled a bit with the likes of "Beastly" and "I Am Number Four" but is back at the frontlines after his amiable turn in "Magic Mike." He also recently signed on to appear in both "The Butler" and "Diamond Dogs."
Production on "Cali" will commence at the end of the summer under the direction of Nick Cassavetes, who will no doubt be taking the grittier approach of "Alpha Dog" over the ultra-produced prettiness of "The Notebook" on this one.
