Book-To-Film adaption Freak Show has cast Alex Lawther in the lead role.
Freak Show also stars Bette Mildler as Muv, AnnaSophia Robb, Ian Nelson and Lorraine Toussaint. The book summary:
Billy Bloom is gay, but it’s mostly theoretical, as he hasn’t had much experience. When he has to move to Florida, he can’t believe his bad luck. His new school is a mix of bible belles, amberzombies, and football heroes — none of which are exactly his type.
Billy’s efforts to fit in and stand out at the same time are both hilarious and heart warming.
The film is set begin production at the end of the month.
