If you haven’t read All The Bright Places, you are missing out on a book that will truly move you to your core. Lucky for us – in this day and age, books that make a difference can be turned into films and this one is getting the feature film treatment.
The movie had already cast the main protagonist, Violet Markey, around the time that the film was optioned. Elle Fanning was cast in that role. It’s been a challenge to cast the male lead apparently, but good things come to those that wait.
You may recognize the man cast as Finch – Justice Smith. You may recognize him from such things as The Get Down, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and Paper Towns.
Jennifer Nivens, the author of the book, announced this casting on her Twitter.
While All The Bright Places does not yet have a release date, it’s due to start filming soon.
