We've got the 420 — er, the 411 — on a groovy new movie.
Kellan Lutz of the "Twilight" saga and Nina Dobrev of "The Vampire Diaries" are set to trade drinking blood for smoking (and selling) weed as they sign on for "Kid Cannabis," according to Heat Vision.
"Kid Cannabis" is based on a 2005 Rolling Stone article that chronicled the exploits of suburban Idaho teens who built a multimillion-dollar marijuana empire. The film is set to star Jonathan Daniel Brown ("Project X") as a depressed 18-year-old who assembles his friends to smuggle drugs across the Canadian border, an endeavor that makes them rich ... and puts them in a situation that's way over their heads.
News of Lutz's casting comes hot on the heels of word that he'll also be playing the title role in a new version of "Tarzan" being set up at Constantin Films. He's also set to play Emmett Cullen one final time in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," opening Nov. 16.
Meanwhile, Nina Dobrev is starting to branch out beyond the realm of "The Vampire Diaries" with a supporting turn opposite Emma Watson in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," opening Sept. 21. She also recently appeared in one of last year's top guilty pleasures, "The Roommate," which brought the terrors of "Single White Female" to a collegiate level.
"Kid Cannabis" is set to be directed by John Stockwell, who knows a thing or two about stories featuring young people in trouble after calling the shots on "Into the Blue" and "Turistas." Production will commence in Canada in July.
