Kristen Stewart’s love life may currently be in shambles, but at least her career is on fire.
And it may get even hotter now that “Magic Mike” star Alex Pettyfer is in final negotiations to play her love interest in the upcoming film “Cali.”
Variety reports that Voltage Productions and New School Media are just inches away from signing the Hollywood hottie up for director Nick Cassavetes' action adventure.
The flick is centered around a couple from San Fernando Valley (Stewart and, presumably, Pettyfer) who make a small fortune after selling a faux snuff film.
Producers attached to the movie are “300” producer Craig J. Flores and “Killer Joe” producer Zev Foreman. Shooting is supposed to begin later this summer.
Before his skintastic turn in “Magic Mike,” Pettyfer - who’s also up for a supporting role in Lee Daniels' "The Butler" - starred in "I Am Number Four," "Beastly" and "In Time."
