One adaptation that we are looking forward to is Alexandra Bracken’s, The Darkest Minds. The books are so addictive and then you add in the casting of Amandla Stenberg – one can’t go wrong.
Earlier, Deadline announced another casting. Harris Dickinson has been added to the cast to play the part of Liam. Liam, like Amandla’s character, develops super powers after a pandemic that he survives.
But who is Harris Dickinson?
Harris is British – so we’re looking forward to that accent. Now we’re not familiar with many of his acting credits, but have heard of Beach Rats. You can follow him on Twitter here.
Jennifer Yuh Nelson is directing the adaptation.
SYNOPSIS: Ruby Daly never thought she would survive the horrible plague that killed 98% of America’s children… but she did. Those who survived the disease were left with unnatural powers that could only be described by a color: the greens (super intelligent), the blues (telekinesis), the yellows (control over electricity), the oranges (power over the mind), and the reds (control fire). Ruby is an orange, a dangerous one. She is sent to Thurmond, a camp for kids like her. She is miserable there and scared of what happened to the others like her. She hides under the facade that she is a green and watched as those like her are taken away. She escapes this horrible place with the help of the children’s league, and from there her life changes forever.
