Kristen Stewart has transformed her dark brunette hair into a flame orange color for her upcoming movie, ‘American Ultra.’

Kristen Stewart looked like she’d gone off her rocker by dying her hair a bright orange color, causing a huge stir on the Internet. But the dye job is for a new role in her upcoming action comedy movie “American Ultra.”

Stewart, 23, will play a girl named Phoebe, who lives with her slacker boyfriend Mike played by Jesse Eisenberg.

Mike is pretty much a dead-ender, but he’s got a secret that makes him the target of government assassins bent on eliminating him.

Uma Thurman will also star in the movie. She plays a government scientist who led a secret program to create sleeper warriors, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
