Goggins joins indie comedy…

The awesome Walton Goggins (‘Justified,’ ‘Django Unchained,’ ‘Lincoln’) has become the latest name to be linked to the indie action comedy ‘American Ultra,’ according to Deadline.

With Jesse Eisenberg (‘Man of Steel 2’) and Kristen Stewart (‘Camp X-Ray’) toplining, the film follows Mike, an hapless stoner whose sleepy, small-town existence who has a Jason Bourne-like awakening when his past comes back to haunt him in the form of a government operation set to wipe him out. Topher Grace (‘Interstellar’) and John Leguizamo (‘Kick-Ass 2,’ ‘Ride Along’) are also on board for supporting roles.

Nima Nourizaden (‘Project X’) is attached to direct with the script coming from Max Landis (‘Chronicle’).

Circle of Confusion’s David Alpert and Britton Rizzio are co-producing with Likely Story’s Anthony Bregman.
