John Boyega is trading in his light saber for a laptop.
The former Attack the Block star and current Star Wars VII actor has been cast in THE CIRCLE, based on Dave Egger’s book of the same name. James Ponsoldt, having just released the amazing film, The End of the Tour, is writing and directing, and the addition of Boyega only strengthens the already stellar cast of Emma Watson and Tom Hanks.
The Circle is about an social media monopoly that links your emails, banking info, and social schedule into one entity, and the differences that type of transparency creates in society. Boyega will be playing Ty, a wunderkind for the company who falls in love with Emma Watson’s character.
Boyega is repped by WME.
