Ansel Elgort will star in the upcoming thriller adaptation NOVEMBER CRIMINALS. The script originated from Sam Munson’s 2011 novel of the same name, which follows two teenagers investigating the murder of their friend in the dangerous underbelly of Washington D.C – all while finding time to fall in love. Elgort will be starring opposite Chloe Grace Moretz as the female lead for the second time in his short career, as the two previously shared screen time in Elgort’s film debut Carrie. Steven Knight adapted the screenplay and Sacha Gervasi will pen the re-write and serve as director.
Much of the young actor’s early success came in the wake of his break-out performance in The Fault In Our Stars, co–starring Shailene Woodley. Prior to landing that role, Elgort played Caleb, brother to Woodley’s character, in the action film Divergent. He can soon be seen stepping back into his former character’s shoes in the second installment of the mega-hit franchise, Insurgent.
