Death Note is targeting Nat Wolff. The Paper Towns star will lead Adam Wingard‘s adaptation of the popular Japanese manga series, about a notebook that brings death to anyone whose name is written in its pages. Which, okay, sounds kind of dumb when I put it that way. But trust me, it’s cooler than I’m making it sound. Read about the Nat Wolff Death Note casting after the jump. Read More »

Fox 2000 Pictures has released a new trailer for Paper Towns, the new mystery romantic drama following a young man and his friends who go on the “road trip of their lives to find the missing girl next door.” I’m mainly interested in this film because it was written by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber, the screenwriters behind (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now. I also enjoyed director Jake Schreier‘s first feature Robot & Frank when I caught it at Sundance a few years back.

Wednesday afternoon, a rumor began swirling that Sony and Marvel had narrowed down their choices to play the new Spider-Man to five actors. Now, thanks to The Wrap, we know who those actors are. They are Nat Wolff, Asa Butterfield, Tom Holland, Timothee Chalamet and Liam James. Read more about the potential new Spider-Man actors below.
Update: In the days since this shortlist emerged, a new report says that Asa Butterfield is Marvel’s top choice for the role. Since Captain America: Civil War is shooting now and will feature the new Spidey, the actor has to be locked down soon. More details follow our original story.

The Fault in Our Stars author John Green is back this summer with Paper Towns, a somewhat lighter tale of teen romance. Nat Wolff plays Quentin, an ordinary kid who carries a torch for his beautiful and mysterious next-door neighbor Margo, played by Cara Delevingne. But they haven’t much spoken since childhood, so he’s shocked when one night, she beckons him out on an adventure.
Then, things take a turn for the even weirder next morning when she vanishes, leaving a trail of clues for Quentin and his friends to follow. Watch the Paper Towns trailer after the jump. Read More »

This will probably help frame the direction Josh Boone plans to take his adaptation of Stephen King‘s massive post-apocalyptic novel The Stand. While Warner Bros. has cycled through few different filmmakers to adapt the novel, the studio finally landed on Boone, director of Stuck in Love and the upcoming adaptation The Fault in Our Stars. That latter film is going to be HUGE, and there’s little doubt that Warner Bros. hoped Boone could bring a four-quadrant teen appeal to The Stand.
And now he’s writing a role for Nat Wolff, the actor who features in The Fault in Our Stars. Read More »

Gia Coppola‘s debut film Palo Alto premiered at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival and David Ehrlich called it “one of the best movies ever made about high school life in America”. I tend to disagree with Ehrlich most of the time, but even Todd McCarthy calls it “the best feature film directed by someone named Coppola in a number of years.” The filmmaker, cast (specifically Emma Roberts & James Franco), style and setting definitely have me excited to see this film. The movie is a dark drama that follows a group of teenagers whom, of course, have “a penchant for finding trouble.” Watch the second Palo Alto movie trailer embedded after the jump.

Last year, screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber brought us The Spectacular Now, a smart, tender YA adaptation about first love. This year, they’re mining similar territory with The Fault in Our Stars, based on John Green‘s bestselling novel. They even have Shailene Woodley starring once again.
This time, she plays Hazel Grace Lancaster, who falls for fellow cancer patient Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) after meeting him in a support group for sick teens. Josh Boone directs, with Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, and Mike Birbiglia in supporting roles. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

As James Franco prepares to debut his latest directorial effort, Child of God, at Venice and Toronto, another of his movies is on its way to a Telluride premiere. Palo Alto wasn’t helmed by Franco, but it was based on his short story collection and stars Franco in a key role.
Instead, it’s Gia Coppola (granddaughter of Francis Ford and niece of Sofia and Roman) who directed this drama, which follows several interconnected plotlines in the suburban town of its title. Emma Roberts leads the cast as a teenager who gets romantically involved with her soccer coach (Franco), while Jack Kilmer (son of Val) and Nat Wolff play a pair of troubled kids. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

If Girls seems to chalk up Hannah’s bad ideas to her relative youth, the first trailer for Writers suggests such misguidedness may simply be an occupational hazard. In the directorial debut by Josh Boone, Greg Kinnear plays an acclaimed novelist who deals with his divorce by alternately spying on his ex-wife (Jennifer Connelly) and screwing his married neighbor (Kristen Bell).
His kids Samantha (Lily Collins) and Rusty (Nat Wolff) are both budding writers as well, though they take totally opposite approaches to life. She racks up “experiences” in the form of notches on her bedpost, while he pines after a pretty high school classmate (Liana Liberato) with a mean boyfriend. Watch the first trailer after the jump.
