Nina Dobrev And Kellan Lutz May Join ‘Kid Cannabis’

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nina Dobrev is still trying to overcome her scheduling issue before she could finalize the deal.

Should she join the project, the girlfriend of actor Ian Somerhalder (seen here with Ian at this year’s Coachella Music Festival) is expected to star as 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.”

Kellan Lutz is in also in talks to join indie film. The 27-year-old actor – best known as vampire Emmett Cullen in the Twilight films – would join Jonathan Daniel Brown in Kid Cannabis, which is based on a Rolling Stone article telling the true story of an impoverished high school drop-out who built a multi million-dollar drugs empire. 

Project X breakout star Brown will play the lead in the film. Jonathan is set to play a teenager who gets his friends to smuggle marijuana from Canada to Idaho, where he lives. Things take a bad turn when the authorities start snooping around.

Kellan would play his best friend, and Nina would play the love interest of Kellan’s character.
