I’ve updated the gallery with additional movie stills & behind the scenes photos from Deepwater Horizon. I had the opportunity to see the movie over the weekend and recommend seeing it. So proud that Dylan was apart of such inspirational, amazing film and the casting couldn’t have been more perfect.
Earlier tonight, we reported that Marvel and Sony plan on sending Peter Parker back to high school in the new Spider-Man that is being planned. At this time, Sony, who will have the ultimate say in who is cast as the new web-crawler, are already targeting two young actors to play the role. In contention are Logan Lerman andDylan O’Brien. The plan is to get someone younger than the 31 year-old Andrew Garfield, who previously played the role in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Logan Lerman is 23 years old, but can still pass for high school age. Dylan O’Brien is the same age, and is equally youthful in his appearance. Sony, who has ultimate say over what exactly the new Spider-Man will be, plan to keep Peter at Midtown High School a little longer, as the main thrust of this new series will focus on Parker’s awkward relationships with fellow students, and how he deals with bullies while at the same time protecting the city he loves as a crime-fighting vigilante in a superhero costume. Both Sam Raimi‘s 2002 Spider-Man and Marc Webb‘s 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man started Peter off at Midtown High, but in both series, he graduated and moved onto life outside of high school. It sounds as though this new iteration may keep him in classes for more than one movie.
While Logan Lerman and Dylan O’Brien are being looked at for the role of Peter Parker, we shouldn’t consider either of them true contenders just yet. While Marvel and Sony named Peter Parker in their press release, it is believed that the two studios are considering other iterations of the character, and may even bring in Miles Morales, a mixed race character whose father is African-American and whose mother is Puerto Rican, instead. Whoever the character is, he will be introduced in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, which begins filming later this year for a 2016 release. So we’ll probably know who Sony and Marvel decide on for Peter Parker sooner than later.
Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Sony’s Amy Pascal will produce the new Spider-Manstandalone adventure, which is set for release on July 28, 2017. Kevin Feige, however, won’t be involved in the spinoffs, since he has an ambitious Marvel Phase Three slate to develop, which includes nine movies being released in the span of three years.
Logan Lerman is best known for his roles in Fury and Noah. He also played the title character in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: Lightning Thief and its sequel Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. Dylan O’Brien recently took the lead in The Maze Runner, and will return for its upcoming sequel The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. What do you guys think? Do you like either Logan Lerman or Dylan O’Brienfor this highly coveted part? Or do you hope they bring Miles Morales in this time around? Any suggestions? Sound off below!
‘Teen Wolf’ actor Dylan O’Brien has reportedly landed the lead role in the found-footage time-travel thriller ‘Glimmer.’
Featuring a Black List script by Carter Blanchard, the sci-fi “follows a group of teenagers who take a camping trip to investigate a series of missing persons and wind up discovering a portal that takes them back in time and traps them in the 1970s. When one of them changes the past, the effects start to snowball with tragic consequences.”
TheWrap adds that Jeremy Allen White (‘Shoplifters of the World,’ ‘Movie 43,’ ‘Shameless’) is in talks to co-star.
Ringan Ledwidge, who made his directorial debut with 2006’s psychological thriller ‘Gone,’ is attached to direct. The film was originally set to begin shooting early this year but had its start date pushed back to accommodate O’Brien’s schedule.
Hopefully this is true & some more information about casting will come out! The plot of the movie sounds amazing!
EXCLUSIVE: DreamWorks is firming up a January production start for Glimmer, and a big reason for that is so that it will allow some scheduling room for Dylan O’Brien to play the lead. O’Brien is busy starring in Maze Runner for Fox, but he’s in talks for the lead, I hear. He’s repped by WME. He’s also in the TV series Teen Wolf, and the schedule was moved so he could complete the season of that show before going off to do feature work. Ringan Ledwidge directs the sci-fi thriller about a group of teenagers who discover a portal to the past. When one of them changes history, the effects start to snowball with tragic consequences. Josh Schwartz and Carter Blanchard wrote the script. Madhouse’s Adam Kolbrenner and Ryan Cunningham produce with Mark Sourian.
Dylan O’Brien, the star of MTV’s “Teen Wolf,” is set to join Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in the 20th Century Foxcomedy The Internship, Variety reports.
The film, to be directed by Shawn Levy, has Vaughn and Wilson portraying two old school salesmen who, finding themselves suddenly unemployed and passed-by in the digital world, try to reinvent themselves by becoming interns at a major tech company.
O’Brien will play a much younger intern at the same company.
Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment and Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show Productions will produce the film, based on Vaughn’s original script.
Filming is slated to begin on June 25.
Congrats to Dylan! This is such exciting news! It’s so great to see Dylan working on projects outside of Teen Wolf. More information about the movie will be posted as it comes out!
