The Hollywood Reporter: Kellan Lutz of Twilight fame and The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev are in negotiations to join Project X breakout Jonathan Daniel Brown in Kid Cannabis.
John Stockwell is directing the movie, which is based on a 2005 Rolling Stone article telling the true tale of suburban teens from Idaho who built a multimillion-dollar marijuana empire.
Lutz will play the teen’s older best friend, who loves the thrill in the beginning but soon finds himself over his head.
Dobrev, who has scheduling issues to work out before her deal can be finalized, would play a hot-to-trot 19-year-old who has a thing for the best friend and whose father is one of the biggest pot growers in the province.
The movie has been in development for several years and once almost came together with Chris Marquette and Cam Gigandet as the male leads.
Lutz, repped by Innovative Artists, Zero Gravity Entertainment and Morris Yorn, just signed on to star in Constantin Films’ 3D motion-capture adaptation of Tarzan.
Innovative-repped Dobrev most recently appeared on the big screen in last year’s The Roommate and will appear with Emma Watson in the indie The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
