Topher Grace Joins 'American Ultra'

Topher Grace (SPIDER-MAN 3, the upcoming INTERSTELLAR) has joined the cast of the action comedy AMERICAN ULTRA alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, John Leguizamo, and Walton Goggins.

Deadline reports Grace will play a CIA agent who is hired to kill a secret government asset (Eisenberg), a stoner who leads an otherwise uneventful life with his live-in girlfriend (Stewart).

The film, directed by Nima Nourizadeh (PROJECT X) and written by Max Landis (CHRONICLE), was acquired by Lionsgate for US distribution for $7 million following this year's European Film Market. FilmNation is handling international sales on the project, which goes into production this month.
