We gotta admit, Alden Ehrenreich as a potential franchise star for a series of young adult books leaping to the big screen, is still a hard concept to adjust to. But like it or not, it's coming, and the actor, who has mostly been playing around with the Coppolas ("Tetro," "Twixt," "Somewhere"), could be a name girls start writing on their binders with hearts around it (do kids even use binders these days?).

While director Francis Lawrence made his name in Hollywood directing big budget flag wavers like "Constantine" and "I Am Legend," the helmer is looking to broaden his horizons and get out of the VFX and explosions game. He's got the Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz led period romance "Water For Elephants" around the corner and earlier this year, he lined up the WWII tale based on Laura Hillenbrand‘s bestseller “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption” over at Universal. At the time it was said that "Crazy Heart" writer/director Scott Cooper might pen the adaptation, but instead an Oscar nominated writer/director has gotten the job.
