Jake Schreier is directing Fox 2000’s coming-of-age movie, which stars Nat Wolff and Cara Delevinge
Austin Abrams, Halston Sage and newcomer Justice Smith are joining Fox 2000’s adaptation of John Green’s bestselling novel ”Paper Towns,” TheWrap has learned.
Nat Wolff and model Cara Delevinge will star in the coming-of-age drama, which is being directed by Jake Schreier.
Wolff will play the lead role of Quentin, whose world changes when the lovely Margo (Delevinge) moves in right next door when he’s nine years old. They become best friends but grow apart over the years only to reconnect in the last few weeks of high school. When Margo mysteriously disappears, Quentin and his best friends go on a journey to find her, and in the course of their road trip, discover a lot about life.
Abrams, Sage and Smith will respectively play Ben, Lacey and Radar — Quentin’s friends who journey with him to New York City to search for Margo.
Abrams closed his deal Thursday evening, while Sage and Smith’s deals are expected to close soon.
Screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber are producing with “Fault In Our Stars” author Green and Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey and Isaac Klausner.
Sage is an up-and-coming young actress who appeared in “Neighbors” and was a series regular on NBC’s “Crisis.” She next stars in Sony’s “Goosebumps” and Paramount’s “Scouts vs Zombies.” She’s represented by CAA, ROAR and attorney Michael Schenkman.
Abrams co-starred on MTV’s “The InBetweeners” and appeared in both “The Kings of Summer” and “Gangster Squad.” He has booked three indie movies in the last month, having recently wrapped “Medicine Men” with James Le Gros and “The Greens Are Gone” with Kiernan Shipka, Catherine Keener and Anton Yelchin. Abrams will also play the leads in Werner Herzog’s “Vernon God Little” and Adam Christian Clark’s “Aaron Baby Superfecta.” He’s represented by APA, Industry Entertainment and attorney Derek Kroeger.
Halston Sage, who next appears in the upcoming Seth Rogen-Zac Efron comedy Neighbors, has nabbed roles in two buzzy, horror-adventure family films.
The actress will co-star in Sony’s Goosebumps, starring Jack Black. In the film, directed by Rob Letterman, Black stars as famed children’s horror writer R.L. Stine, whose monsters, it turns out, are actually real. When they escape from his books and attack an unsuspecting town, it’s up to Stine and two teens to get the monsters back into their stories.
Goosebumps, which comes from a screenplay by Darren Lemke and Mike White, is set for release on March 23, 2016. It’s produced by Neal H. Moritz through his Original Film banner and Deborah Forte of Scholastic Entertainment.
Sage has also nabbed the role of Kendall in Paramount’s Scouts vs. Zombies. Directed by Christopher Landon, the film follows three scouts who must save their town from a zombie outbreak. The screenplay from Landon is based on Lona Williams and Etan Cohen’s draft of an original script from Emi Mochizuki and Carrie Evans.
Also starring Tye Sheridan and Patrick Schwarzenegger, Scouts vs. Zombies is produced by Todd Garner, Andy Fickman, Betsy Sullenger and Bryan Brucks.
Sage, who is repped by CAA, ROAR and attorney Michael Schenkman, kicked off her career with Nickelodeon’s TV series How to Rock and has been building up a strong film slate over the past few years. She appeared in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring, and comedy sequel Grown Ups 2, and will next appear as the girlfriend of Zac Efron’s frat boy character in the comedy Neighbors. She can currently be seen on the NBC series Crisis.
Rising star Halston Sage is joining Christopher Landon’s horror/comedy SCOUTS VS. ZOMBIES. The film follows a Boy Scout troop that must use their skills to battle vicious zombies after their small town suddenly becomes infected. There’s no word yet on Sage’s role in the film but she’ll join Tye Sheridan, Patrick Schwarzenegger and “Anchorman” star David Koechner.
Even though she’s just starting out in Hollywood, she already has some impressive credits to her name. Sage started out with small roles in indie comedy “The First Time” and Columbia’s “Grown Ups 2″ before coming into her own in the upcoming Universal comedy “Neighbors” opposite Seth Rogan and Zac Efron. Sage will also star in the upcoming crime thriller “Poker Night” with “Breaking Bad’s” Giancarlo Esposito and “Sons of Anarchy’s” Ron Perlman.
Sage is repped by CAA and ROAR.
