Jesse Eisenberg - Jesse Eisenberg joined by Bill Pullman and Tony Hale

Jesse Eisenberg will star alongside Bill Pullman and Tony Hale in 'American Ultra'.

The 'Social Network' actor began filming for the action-comedy yesterday (14.04.14) and it's now been revealed that 'Independence Day' star Bill Pullman and 'Arrested Development' funny man Tony Hale have been confirmed to complete the cast.

The film - which Lionsgate paid $7 million for in March - stars Eisenberg as a ''hapless and unmotivated stoner'' whose small-town life with his girlfriend, played by Kristen Stewart, is suddenly turned upside down when his secret past as a sleeper agent comes back to haunt him, according to Deadline.com.

'Project X' director Nima Nourizadeh is helming the project, which follows a script penned by 'Chronicle' writer Max Landis, and Topher Grace, Romeo and Juliet's John Leguizamo and Walton Goggins will also co-star alongside Pullman and Hale.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind's Anthony Bregman, alongside Kevin Frakes, Raj Brinder Singh, The Walking Dead's David Alpert and Britton Rizzio will produce for PalmStar, Likely Story and Circle of Confusion with Ray Angelic taking on the role of executive producer.

'American Ultra' is slated for release in 2015.
