Literary popularity does not always translate to box office gold, as the producers of “The Golden Compass” can tell you (that movie made bank overseas, but New Line had sold off foreign territories, so they didn’t see any of that money). The producers of ‘Wallflower’ (one of whom is John Malkovich) are no doubt hoping this project will fall into the "successful" category, and they’ve got a pretty engaging roster of actors to back that up, with Ezra Miller, Johnny Simmons, Melanie Lynskey, Mae Whitman, Nicholas Braun, Dylan McDermott and most excitingly, Paul Rudd (who is apparently not letting his leading man status keep him away from small, interesting roles) all featured in the movie.
Lerman is on the rise, memorably delivering his own shot at the “The Amazing Spider-Man” lead last year, but with the trailer for that Andrew Garfield-led film looking like a snore, it’s possible that Lerman will have the last laugh on this one. Pics below.
