“Fault in Our Stars” actor Ansel Elgort is set to star in the TriStar and MRC pic “Baby Driver” directed by Edgar Wright.

Plot follows a talented, young getaway driver who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. After being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Wright will write and direct “Baby Driver,” with Working Title principals Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan producing along with Nira Park through her Big Talk Productions. David Beaubaire and Nicole Brown overseeing for TriStar.

“Baby Driver” will see a 50/50 financing split between MRC and TriStar, with TriStar handling worldwide distribution.

Variety was the first to report TriStar and Working Title were teaming on the pic and also that Elgort was in early discussions to star. Elgort has since worked out his schedule with the next film in the “Divergent” series, “Allegiant,” which allowed him to close the deal for “Baby Driver.”

Working Title has worked with Wright on several films, including his comedy “The World’s End,” and Hollywood has been buzzing about what his next project will be since he exited “Ant-Man” last summer. Rothman has had a long-standing relationship with Wright and fought hard to land the pic.

Elgort is repped by CAA and can be seen next in “November Criminals” opposite Chloe Moretz.

Ansel will be on Live with Kelly and Michael and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, March 3rd! Be sure to tune in!

EXCLUSIVE: Ansel Elgort has inked his next major role after enjoying a breakout 2014 with hits The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent, both opposite the Golden Globes-nominated Shailene Woodley. Now he’s set to star with Chloë Grace Moretz in November Criminals, the teen thriller adaptation that Hitchcock‘s Sacha Gervasi is directing for Lotus Entertainment.

Steven Knight (Locke, Eastern Promises) adapted the script from Sam Munson’s 2011 novel about two teenagers who venture into the seedy underbelly of Washington, D.C. to investigate a friend’s murder while falling in love for the first time.

Catherine Keener also stars in the film, which Lotus came aboard to co-finance and co-produce during November’s AFM. Beth O’Neil (Jack Goes Boating) is also producing. CAA and WME are jointly repping domestic rights and Lotus will handle international sales.

Elgort, the 20 year-old son of an opera director and a photographer, burst onto Hollywood’s radar last year after making his feature debut in MGM’s Carrie remake. He also starred in Jason Reitman’s ensemble drama Men, Women, and Children and will reprise his role as Caleb this March in Summit/Lionsgate’s Divergent sequel, Insurgent.

Moretz is coming off of the Denzel Washington actioner The Equalizer and teen drama If I Stay. She’ll also be in theaters in March in director Olivier Assayas’ Clouds of Sils Maria with Kristen Stewart and Juliette Binoche.

Lotus has a current slate that includes Xavier Gens’ thriller The Crucifixion, Shekhar Kapur’s Tiger’s Curse, Replicas starring Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry starrer Kidnap, Tom Tykwer’s A Hologram for the King, YA adaptation Fallen, Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie pic Maggie, and Craig Zobel’s Z For Zachariah, which premieres this month at Sundance.

EXCLUSIVE: Ansel Elgort, hot off the male lead of Augustus Waters in The Fault In Our Stars, has signed to play the title role in Van Cliburn, a feature that is being mounted by Temple Hill partners Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen along with Crystal City Entertainment in association with The Johnson Group. Godfrey and Bowen, who worked with Elgort on The Fault In Our Stars, will produce with Ari Daniel Pinchot and Robert M. Johnson is exec producer. Andrew Stern will write the script.

The film is based on the Howard Reich book Van Cliburn, and Elgort will play the pianist in his formative years when, at age 23 in 1958, he emerged from out of nowhere to win the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow. It was the first time the tournament was held, and was organized by the USSR after it had caught up to the U.S. in the nuclear arms race and completed the first successful space launch with Sputnik. Nikita Khrushchev saw the competition as a way to lord Soviet superiority at a time when tensions between the two superpowers were sky high. The lanky pianist from Texas who graduated Juilliard but was taught by his neighborhood piano teacher mother, had a very unorthodox instinctive style that bowled won over the Russian judges and the proletariat crowd that followed every note of the competition. Although some tried to marginalize him so they could knock him from the competition, Cliburn made it to the finals. Judges, fearing exile to Siberia, brought in Khrushchev as they deliberated. The Soviet premier asked them if he was the best, and told them to give him the prize when they answered yes. This was credited with bridging the Cold War gap. Cliburn became a favorite among Russian audiences, and he played for U.S. presidents as well, until he abruptly stopped publicly performing in 1978. The one-time prodigy died last year of bone cancer at 78.

Elgort, a graduate of LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts, started as a dancer and yes, he can play the piano. He appeared in the Carrie remake and co-starred with Shailene Woodley in Divergent, before they starred together in Fault. They are currently shooting the Divergent sequel Insurgent. Elgort also has wrapped Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children, opposite Adam Sandler. He also is a DJ and producer of rlectronic dance music under his Ansolo logo (and Twitter handle @Ansolo_Music). With all the EDM projects percolating in Hollywood, and young EDM fans filling arenas and festivals, can a movie in that area be far behind?

For Temple Hill, that puts the producers in business with both the male leads from Fault, the sleeper summer hit for Fox 2000. They are adapting the John Green novel Paper Towns as a star vehicle for Fault co-star Nat Wolff, with Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter again adapting a bestseller by the author and social-media star. Elgort is repped by CAA and Brookside Artist Management’s Emily Gerson Saines.
