Ansel Elgort is ready to ride. With his latest feature film Baby Driver and an upstart music career, the 23-year-old actor/dancer/musician is firmly hunkered down in Hollywood’s driver’s seat, testing the limits of both what he can do and shifting gears before getting too comfortable.

If his name sounds familiar, it’s because he comes from a line of artistic provenance. His father, Arthur Elgort, is a legendary fashion photographer whose work has lined the pages of Vogue for the past 45 years, and his mother, Grethe Barrett Holby, is a highly respected opera director and choreographer. Watching Elgort on screen transports you to a bygone era of the matinee idol: his deliberate, low voice and classically handsome looks are reminiscent of old Hollywood.

Elgort jumped onto the screen and into our teen-girl fantasies with starring roles in the Divergent franchise and The Fault in Our Stars. Calling him a “heartthrob” is no understatement. The actor is so beloved, the wooden bench that he kissed The Fault in Our Stars co-star Shailene Woodley on in Amsterdam went missing after the film, presumably stolen by Ansølo-crazed fans (his track-spinning pseudonym). With only a handful of feature films under his belt, Elgort has quickly risen to the top. While he’s known for his work in the Young Adult genre, he’s dovetailing that with meatier, more serious roles where he can really flex his muscles, both literally and figuratively.

Swerving out of the YA lane is his role in Baby Driver, a high- speed, car chase movie that lands somewhere between action and crime genres with a musical twist. Sounds unique? It sure is. Directed by Edgar Wright, also behind the cult-classic Shaun of the Dead, the film casts Elgort as Baby, a “strong but silent type” getaway driver. Although Baby is a man of few words, he is never without a pair of headphones—listening to a personal soundtrack at all times in order to drown out the tinnitus he developed as a child, caused by a fatal car crash that took his parents’ lives. “What makes him an interesting character is that you see him in a lot of different situations,” reasons Elgort. “You don’t just see him with the crime crew, you see him at home, with his foster dad, you see him in the diner with [love interest] Deborah. That’s where you really get to know who he is.”

DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: As he prepares to rev up the Edgar Wright-directed Baby Driver for tomorrow’s opening, Ansel Elgort has been set to play young president John F. Kennedy Jr in Mayday 109, the true story of the future American president’s feats of heroism as a Navy captain during WWII. The film is a co-production between Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures and Beau Flynn’s FlynnPictureCo. Elgort and Emily Gerson Saines will produce alongside Flynn and Iwanyk. The producers are beginning the search for a director.

The script is by Samuel Franco & Evan Kilgore. They scripted Keeper Of The Diary, the Fox Searchlight film about Otto Frank and Barbara Zimmerman’s struggle to publish the diary of Anne Frank, a film that just got Kenneth Branagh to direct and play Otto Frank.

Mayday 109 focuses on JFK’s extraordinary real-life nautical adventures as the captain of a PT boat that was attacked and sunk by a convoy of Japanese destroyers. This led to the young Kennedy’s involvement in one of the most dramatic rescues in Naval history. Elgort’s breakout turn came in The Fault In Our Stars. Iwanyk and Flynn confirmed the deal.

“We could not be more excited about Ansel coming aboard,” said Iwanyk. “Not only is he a tremendous actor, he embodies the charisma, athleticism and looks of a young JFK. We love that this is not a biopic nor a film about politics. This is simply a riveting and unbelievable tale that very few people know – about a young man who was a hero long before becoming the iconic 35th President of the United States. With Ansel, we’ve found our perfect JFK.”

Kent Kubena and Taylor Zea will oversee for Thunder Road. Scott Sheldon will oversee for FlynnPictureCo. Elgort is represented by CAA and Brookside Artist Management. The scribes are repped by Paradigm.

Thunder Road has upcoming the Taylor Sheridan-directed Wind River with Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen; the Sicario sequel Soldado with Benicio Del Toro and James Brolin; the Alfonso Gomez-Rejon-directed The Current War with Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Tom Holland and Katherine Waterston; and the Dev Patel and Armie Hammer starrer Hotel Mumbai. FlynnPictureCo is in production on the Dwayne Johnson-starrer Rampage for New Line with Brad Peyton directing and then Flynn goes right into the Johnson-starrer Skyscraper for Legendary/Universal with writer-director Rawson Thurber.

Earlier today, Ansel attended a photocall for Baby Driver in Madrid. The gallery has been updated with a bunch of photos from the photocall. Enjoy!
