Kristen Stewart has been stepping up her indie pedigree here lately as she just finished filming 'Sils Maria' and Camp X-Ray, now she has rejoined her 2009's Aventureland co-star Jessie Eisenberg in another indie called American Ultra, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

HR describes Ultra as an "action-comedy" where "Eisenberg will play an unmotivated stoner named Mike, who lives with his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart) in a small, sleepy town. One night, their lives take an unexpected turn when Mike's past comes back to haunt him, and he becomes the target of a government operation set to wipe him out."

Ultra is produced by Anthony Bregman who also produced Stewart's Welcome to the Rileys co-star James Gandolfini's final film (Enough Said).

Ultra is scheduled to begin production by April 2014.

Stewart has already been seen filming in New York City as she just picked up a small role with an "ensemble cast" in another indie called Anesthesia directed by actor/writer/director Tim Blake Nelson.

Anesthesia is about "a group of New Yorkers whose lives are touched by the same philosophy professor," according to Deadline. 

IMDb shows Nelson has been recently acting in films (Lincoln, As I Lay Dying); however, his "last directorial effort was 2009′s Leaves Of Grass." 

Although Stewart has been attached to the indie Equals, there is no word if she has officially signed or when production will begin on The Big Shoe which she has signed on to do.

We will begin looking for any signs of pre-production activity for The Big Shoe which also stars the Hunger Games Elizabeth Banks particulary after Banks completes filming the final Hunger Games sequel Mocking Jay
