Kristen Stewart is about to have the ultimate on-set reunion. On April 12, Deadline reported that the “Diana” actor is set to star in a new road-trip comedy called “Sacramento” alongside her former “Speak” co-star and ex-boyfriend Michael Angarano.
“Sacramento” will follow a free-spirited young man named Ricky (Angarano) and his best friend Glenn, who’s now living a domestic life with his wife, Rosie (Stewart). On an impromptu road trip from LA to Sacramento, the group’s pasts come back into view and make them question everything. Angarano co-wrote the script and will also serve as the film’s director.
Michael Cera has signed onto the film to play Glenn, while Angarano’s real-life girlfriend, Maya Erskine, will also join the film as Ricky’s onscreen wife, Tallie. That means he’ll be tasked with directing his ex-girlfriend (he and Stewart dated from about 2005 to 2009) while also acting alongside his current girlfriend.
But based on Angarano’s glowing comments about his cast amid the green-lighting of “Sacramento,” we doubt there will be any awkwardness. After all, much like Angarano, Stewart has happily moved on with her fiancé, Dylan Meyer.
“We feel grateful and very excited to make a movie like ‘Sacramento,'” Angarano told Deadline about the movie. “Chris Smith and I started writing this film years ago, after a pilot of ours didn’t get picked up. We’re honored to be working with this wildly talented cast and crew . . . It’s already been quite a journey, but we’re finally ready to go make a movie.”
Details about “Sacramento” are scarce, but fans will definitely be tuning in to see Angarano and Stewart cross paths onscreen once again.
