Fresh off yesterday’s news that “Project X” star Jonathan Daniel Brown was set for new drama “Kid Cannabis“, comes today’s news via THR that “Twilight” actor Kellan Lutz and TV’s “Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev will be joining him.
Based on a 2005 Rolling Stone article which told the true story of suburban teens from Idaho who built a multimillion-dollar marijuana empire, Brown will play 18 year old Nate Norman, who gather his pals together in order to become an elite drug-running team that imports pot from Canada.
Lutz will play Brown’s older best friend who loves the thrill and, providing there are no scheduling difficulties, Dobrev 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.”
It could be a big coup for both Lutz and Dobrev, who have yet to see their stars rise in Hollywood. Lutz had a small role in Tarsem Singh’s “Immortals” but is still most recognizable for his supporting role in the hugely successful vampire franchise “The Twilight Saga“. No stranger to vampires herself, Dobrev is star of TV’s ‘The Vampire Diaries” but can soon be seen in the hotly anticipated adaptation “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” with Logan Lerman and Emma Watson.
