There Were Probably Better Days To Announce This: Alex Pettyfer Will Play Kristen Stewart's Boyfriend In 'Cali'

This was either the best or worst day to run this news depending on how you look at it, but either way, Kristen Stewart probably wishes it were tomorrow already. With tabloids catching her in the act of canoodling with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, the actress and helmer both issued personal statements to the press apologizing for their indiscretion. How the fabled KStew/RPatz relationship will sustain remains to be seen -- devotees on either sides tend to be fairly extreme -- but business must continue as usual it seems, as the actress' next project keeps rolling.

This was either the best or worst day to run this news depending on how you look at it, but either way, Kristen Stewart probably wishes it were tomorrow already. With tabloids catching her in the act of canoodling with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, the actress and helmer both issued personal statements to the press apologizing for their indiscretion. How the fabled KStew/RPatz relationship will sustain remains to be seen -- devotees on either sides tend to be fairly extreme -- but business must continue as usual it seems, as the actress' next project keeps rolling.

Variety reports that "Magic Mike" badboy Alex Pettyfer has joined indie flick "Cali" with Stewart. Penned by Michael Diliberti ("30 Minutes or Less"), the story finds Stewart playing Mya, who pairs up with her boyfriend Chris (Pettyfer) to make a fake snuff film which they sell for a wad of cash before beating it out of the San Fernando Valley. Years later, she's forced to head back to save her younger sister, but to do so she will have to face a bunch of oddball characters -- angry former business partners, homicidal porn stars, stoner vet techs, and an unstoppable killing machine who wears a cowboy hat -- as well as keep a handle on her relationship with Chris. Zany!

Nick Cassavetes ("John Q," "The Notebook") is directing so at the very least it will be....workmanlike. Production is aiming for a late summer start, and we can only imagine the paparazzi will be keeping an even closer eye on KStew as she moves on from this incident.
