The first teaser trailer for “Allegiant” has released! Check it out below!
THR.com – ‘Kill the Messenger’ helmer Michael Cuesta will direct the drama.
Fault in Our Stars and Divergent actor Ansel Elgort is attached to star in Code Name Veil, the Black Label Media drama set in 1980s Beirut.
In the film, which is inspired by real events, Elgort would play a rookie CIA agent who investigates the attacks against the U.S. Embassy and Marine barracks during the bombings in Beirut in 1983. When his station chief is taken hostage, the young and inexperienced agent finds himself turning to desperate measures to save his mentor.
Kill the Messenger helmer Michael Cuesta is directing the hot-button film from a 2008 Black List script by Matt Billingsly.
Trent Luckinbill, Thad Luckinbill and Molly Smith are producing while Jon Schumacher and Ellen H. Schwartz will executive produce. CAA is repping domestic rights.
Elgort has been in high demand since his breakout role in The Fault in Our Stars, the hit adaptation of John Green’s YA book. The 2014 film, in which he starred opposite Shailene Woodley, earned a massive $307 million worldwide.
Elgort, who is also an electronic dance music producer, stars in Summit’s Divergent YA franchise (also with Woodley), and will next be seen in the franchise’s Allegiant: Part 1, which opens in March. His other upcoming films include November Criminals with Chloe Grace Moretz, and he’s attached to Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver with Lily James. He’s repped by CAA, Brookside Artist Management and Kevin Yorn.
Ansel is on the cover of the September issue of Teen Vogue. You can check out the cover and outtakes/behind the scenes photos from the photoshoot in our gallery! You can also check out a behind the scenes video from the shoot and an interview Ansel did with Teen Vogue below!
When I met Ansel, I didn’t know he was a star. We were in Amsterdam, my hometown, at a Nicky Romero Protocol party about a year ago. The funny thing is, I’ve never seen one of his films because I barely watch movies. We had a crazy-fun night — then I posted a picture with him on Instagram, and the number of comments was ridiculous. I found out who he was a week later. What makes Ansel so cool is his easygoing personality. He’s the most humble guy, and he’s always true to himself. He is supertalented, but still the same person I met last October. And he produces his own music, which is a big deal in an industry where most people hand that job over to someone else. We send each other tracks, and we’ve played onstage together — but our friendship is about more than just music; he’s like a brother to me. I think we’ve exchanged around 200 ugly selfies — I’ll wake up and get one from him, and then I’ll reply back with one. Ansel and I recently met up in New York and had a great conversation, the type you can’t have with just anyone. We relate on so many levels — we’re both young; we love music and life; and we each have great careers and are trying to balance them with our personal lives. It’s nice to have a friend who really understands you. — Martin Garrix
Ansel Elgort: I love how you had no clue I was a DJ back then. When I went into the booth and started playing back-to-back, you were like, “What the hell? Why is he playing with us?”
Martin Garrix: That was an awesome night.
AE: We really became close after the first time you came over to my house in Brooklyn. We have a picture of it, all of us on the water, and I put my Knicks hat on you. That was the beginning of the friendship. We’ve been boys ever since. Then we played Pacha [a club in New York]. Oh, my God, that was epic.
MG: It was crazy. When did you start making music?
AE: My senior year of high school. I began DJing for fun. My friend taught me on a computer with Traktor DJ, and I would play for classmates at parties. But I really fell in love with dance music when I was 18. It took a year before I made anything I was really happy with.
MG: It took me four years, so it’s all good, Ansel.
AE: I was so bad. I called myself “Hanzolo,” but when I told a pal of mine at school, he was like, “Dude, that’s the stupidest name ever. You have to change that. Why don’t you just call yourself ‘Ansolo’?” And I was like, “Oh, word. That’s cooler.” Hanzolo just sounds stupid.
I have added HD screencaptures of Ansel in “Insurgent” to the gallery! The film is out on Blu-Ray/DVD today!
Meet Shirts and Skins – aka the collaboration between Ansel Elgort and Pierce Fulton!
The young DJs, who also happen to be roommates, remixed “Genius of Time – Same Old Place,” so taken a listen below! It’s great!
You know Ansel as an actor (The Fault in Out Stars, Divergent), 21, but he goes by Ansolo when he makes music.
Meanwhile, Pierce, 23, hails from small town Vermont and taught himself to play multiple instruments before getting into house music production.
The first wave of nominees for The Teen Choice Awards have been announced and Insurgent and Ansel have been nominated. Voting for the awards will begin tomorrow, Wednesday at 12PM PST! Teen Choice 2015 will air Sunday, August 16 at 8/7c LIVE on FOX.
