I have added high quality photos of Ansel attending the T-Mobile Un-carrier X Launch on November 10th to the gallery!
THR.com – James Cox will direct the project, which Good Universe is selling at AFM.
Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton, two of the brightest rising stars as far as young actors go, are attached to star in Billionaire Boys Club.
Wonderland helmer James Cox will direct the film, which is a remake of the 1987 film of the same name. The TV movie was based on a true story about a group of wealthy young men whose schemes and manipulative ways eventually lead to murder.
Elgort would play the leader of the group, Joe Hunt.
Cassian Elwes and Holly Wiersma are producing. Good Universe is selling the project at the upcoming American Film Market in November.
Cox directed the 2003 film Wonderland starring Kate Bosworth and Carrie Fisher and the 2013 film Straight A’s with Ryan Phillippe. He’s repped by CAA.
Elgort had his breakout role in cancer drama Fault in Our Stars opposite Shailene Woodley. Along with starring in the Divergent YA franchise, he’s booked a slew of projects, including November Criminals with Chloe Moretz, Edgar Wright’s Baby Drive with Lily James and CIA drama Code Name Veil. He’s repped by CAA, Brookside Artist Management and Morris Yorn.
Egerton also had a big breakout when he starred in Fox’s hit Kingsman: The Secret Service with Colin Firth. He’ll next be seen in Legend with Tom Hardy. He’ll play Great Britain’s first ski jumper to enter the Winter Olympics in the upcoming Eddie the Eagle. Plus, he’ll also reprise his role for the Kingsman sequel, and has booked Lionsgate’s Robin Hood: Origins. He’s repped by CAA and United Agents in the UK.
Ansel attended the InStyle Awards yesterday, October 26th. I have updated the gallery with photos from the awards!
I have updated the gallery with scans of Ansel in the Autumn/Winter 2015 issue of British GQ Style. This is probably one of my favorite shoots Ansel has done!
GQ-MAGAZINE.CO.UK – Ansel Elgort is a name we’ve been hearing a lot recently, and not just for making young girls swoon after he played Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars. At just 21 years old, the New York-born actor and DJ has an impressive resumé compared to most, including the hit four-movie franchise Divergent and his role in Carrie. Here’s an exclusive preview of his interview and cover shoot…
On ‘Ansolo’, his DJ alter-ego:
‘I just do what I like to do. It’s not about being strategic – I could live in LA, DJ Top 40 hits for tons of cash in bottle service clubs. I could take every YA franchise film I ever got offered. But I don’t think about what’s right for me, image-wise. I don’t care about that shit. The whole Hollywood world – the world that the media sells you – is fake, it’s not real.’
On filming the Divergent series of movies:
‘The process of filming an action movie isn’t about the process, it’s about the result. When filming action movies everyone is working towards getting the perfect shots, hit your mark, lines down, emotion more or less at the right place. It is fun but it isn’t the most artistically fulfilling experience.’
On similarly artistically-inclined actors Shia LaBeouf and James Franco:
‘I view them as very genuine. They are both fucking great actors. They’re great artists in general. If you are an artist you just feel the need to express yourself in a lot of different ways. I think that as an actor, you can actually begin to get away with being yourself.’
Ansel has released his first single “To Life” with Too Many Zooz. You can give it a listen below!
