Kristen Stewart is set to star in edgy action movie 'Cali'.

The movie will be a departure from her more teen friendly fare in the 'Twilight Saga' franchise, dealing with sex, drugs and murders as Kristen's character Mya will sell a fake snuff film - a movie in which someone is murdered - of herself and disappear with her boyfriend Chris and the money.

However, years later she is forced to return from the dead and come back to California to save her younger sister and Voltage producer Craig J. Flore promises viewers will see a different side to Kristen in the movie.

He told Variety: "Kristen is a talented and dynamic actor, with a proved box office draw. Her role in 'Cali' will be edgy and sexy. It will no doubt push the envelope on the public's view of Kristen's wide-ranging abilities. Voltage is thrilled to have her as a partner on this fantastic film

Michael Diliberti wrote the script and will produce along with Flore and Zev Foreman for Voltage.

Kristen can next be seen on screens in 'Snow White and the Huntsman' alongside Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron.
