Emerging star Nat Wolff has just been tapped to lead the independent thriller ROSY, in a move that is a far cry from his notable roles in The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns. Jessica Manafort directs the dark thriller, while Jonathan Schwartz produces.
Wolff will star as Doug, a lonely young man who kidnaps the titular Rosy, a struggling actress. However, the deviant’s plans go sour when Rosy proves to be far more difficult for him to handle than he ever could have anticipated.
Before bursting on the scene with his standout role in The Fault in Our Stars, Wolff appeared in pics like James Franco’s Palo Alto, Admission, and New Year’s Eve. After Fault, he commanded the leading role in another John Green adaptation, Paper Towns, and delivered a memorable turn in the Lily Tomlin-led indie Grandma.
Up next, he’ll next appear in another Franco-directed pic, In Dubious Battle, and will soon lead the Adam Wingard-helmed Death Note adaptation, which is set at Warner Bros. He’ll also shoot Warner’s adaptation of Stephen King’s epic tome, The Stand.
