Jaeden Lieberher will star as a kid who runs away from home in the search of his estranged mother in The True Adventures of Wolfboy, Variety has learned.
The 14-year-old actor from St. Vincent, It, and Midnight Special will share the screen with John Turturro, Chris Messina, Eve Hewson (from
The Knick), and Chloe Sevigny in this coming-of-age story. Other co-stars include Sophie Giannamore (Transparent) and Tony-nominee Michelle Wilson (Sweat).
The True Adventures of Wolfboy will mark the directorial debut for Martin Krejci, who made the short film Fricassee that played at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight. The script is from Year of the Rooster playwright Olivia Dufault.
Production on the movie will begin in September. UTA Independent Film Group and WME Global will sell the title to distributors.
