EXCLUSIVE: In what will be his first collaboration at New Line in a very long time, Michael De Luca is at the center of a deal for Dukes Of Oxy, an article in the April 23 issue of Rolling Stone about a pair of teen high school wrestlers from Florida who built a multimillion-dollar business smuggling OxyContin and other painkillers. The deal is coming together quickly for De Luca to produce the film with Ansel Elgort and Emily Gerson Saines (Temple Grandin). The hope is for Elgort, whose star launched with The Fault In Their Stars, to play one of the two drug dealers.

The Rolling Stone article was written by Guy Lawson, who also wrote the article that became the basis for Arms And The Dudes, the drama Todd Phillips is directing right now at Warner Bros with Miles Teller and Jonah Hill starring as two guys who got a government contract to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan.

For De Luca, this is the first major project for him to produce at New Line since he left the company after a storied run as production president who championed such films as Boogie Nights, Se7en, Rush Hour, Austin Powers and others. It’s the first project he has aligned without outside Universal Pictures since he left his post as president of production at Sony to make a Universal producing deal that returned him to the Fifty Shades Of Grey franchise. New Line chief Toby Emmerich was in the middle of this with Richard Brener. Both of them came up with De Luca at New Line.

“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.

Since shooting a snapshot of Kate Moss after she had stepped out of the shower in a robe and towel wrapped around her head, Mario Testino has convinced almost every big name model in the business to pose for his hugely popular Instagram “Towel Series,” including the likes of Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, and Miranda Kerr. Now Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and none other than Justin Bieber are among the latest crop of social media darlings to get the #iwokeuplikethis treatment.

The photographer captured candids of the trio alongside singer Cody Simpson and actor Ansel Elgort while on set for a fashion story in the April issue of Vogue. Jenner appears statuesque and regal with a towel piled high on top of her crown, while Elgort takes a more relaxed pose reclining in his plush white robe. As for Bieber? Clearly he’s aware that with highly worked-out abs like these, there really isn’t much need for a filter—or a towel for that matter.

Ansel is on the April cover of Seventeen magazine. You can check out photos from the covers and outtakes in our gallery. Below are also some parts of interviews Seventeen has been releasing!

“[My friend] Jordan and I used to throw eggs off my roof and hit cars. We got in trouble with the police when I was 15. They came to our door. I told my dad, ‘We were throwing eggs off the roof and you were out of town and they got really mad at us and said if we did it again we would get in trouble, but we’re never going to do it again.’ I said it all in one sentence. He was like, ‘Okay.'” (Read More)

“I like to buy girls shoes and jewelry. I buy stupidly expensive shoes,” Ansel said. “I got Louboutins for my mom and my girlfriend before. My mom was like, ‘I can’t wear these — they’re too high.’ I was like, ‘Mom, you have to try them, they’re so cool. They’re red snakeskin!’ She still wears them every so often but she can’t walk in them.”(Read More)

“I like romantic dates — going on a long walk in Central Park and then taking the subway downtown and going out to eat and ordering oysters. After that, you walk around again and talk. Morning dates are nice, too. I love doing romantic s***. It’s fun. It’s like you’re living in a movie.”(Read More)

Ansel Elgort has experienced the best of all worlds while sharing the screen with Shailene Woodley – being in love with her in one movie and sharing a brother-sister love with her in the next.

As one would suspect, he says the quick change in roles “was definitely really weird.”

“I don’t know how we did it, but we pulled it off somehow,” says Elgort, 20, of playing Woodley’s, 23, boyfriend in The Fault in Our Stars, and then going on to share a blood line with her as a part of the Prior Family in Divergent.

“We’re happy that somehow it worked,” he told reporters during a press day for Insurgent in Los Angeles on Friday.

And while hunky costar Theo James, 30, got the honor to play Woodley’s lover this time around, Elgort offered to sub in while James was feeling a little under the weather.

“I asked Theo if it was alright [to kiss Shailene because] he wasn’t feeling well,” says Elgort.

“I said, ‘Listen, I’ve done it before,’ and guys that do the visual effects in this movie are good, so they could have easily changed our bodies and it would have been cool,” he jokes.

Elgort’s Divergent series character, Caleb Prior, may only appear to be keeping up with the thrilling, dangerous obstacles that Four, played by James, and Tris, played by Woodley, the actor admits that he is a bit awkward.

“The way Caleb runs looks like he’s going to trip over any second because, to tell you the truth, it was never something that he did,” says Elgort of Caleb’s klutzy character.

He adds, “I think Caleb represents the intellectual and someone who wouldn’t be able to run with people shooting him and that’s why he decides to leave them.”

But don’t let him fool you because, in real life, the dance-loving actor would have no problem – and might even exceed – the challenges that are brought before him in the film.

“I’m a physical guy,” says Elgort. “I play basketball and I rock climb.”

And although Elgort has already starred in two massive films, he is still getting used to life in the spotlight.

“Every day, I go on the street and people ask for pictures, which is kind of weird and different than it was before,” he says.

“It’s really nice when people recognize your work because most actors out there really never have the chance to be seen, so I’m really grateful.”
