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.
