Lionsgate Pays $7 Million For Jesse Eisenberg-Kristen Stewart Pic 'American Ultra'

Deadline:
The appetite for scripts and partially finished films is soaring. Lionsgate is tying up a deal today to pay $7 million to pre-buy U.S. distribution rights to American Ultra, the action comedy that begins shooting in New Orleans in five weeks with Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart starring for Project X director Nima Nourizadeh.
