Kristen Stewart Drops Out of Cali
Kristen Stewart is dropping out of the upcoming movie Cali, a source exclusively tells Gossip Cop.
We’ve reached out for a comment from the actress’ camp, but have not heard back.
Gossip Cop is told that Amber Heard has been asked to join the cast, although it’s not confirmed whether she’d be taking the part.
Heard’s rep would not comment.
The film, with Alex Pettyfer set to play the male lead, will be directed by Nick Cassavetes and revolves around lovers who sell a fake snuff film and run away, only to return to Los Angeles years later to rescue the woman’s younger sister from bad guys.
We’re checking to confirm whether Stewart, reportedly a producer on the film, is still involved in that capacity.
Gossip Cop also reached out to Voltage Productions, the company behind Cali.
Voltage declined to confirm Stewart’s status, but oddly noted that an announcement would be made soon.
