Behold! Harrison Gilbertson, Addison Timlin, and Jeremy Irvine, the stars of the upcoming YA adaptation Fallen are front and center in the film's first look. And just as you might expect from this supernatural teen romance, they are both enviably stylish and filled to the brim with teen angst.
Yahoo presents this image from the Savannah, Georgia-set Fallen, which has recently wrapped production in Hungary.
Based on the first novel in Lauren Kate's popular YA series, Fallen stars Addison Timlin as Lucinda "Luce" Price, a seventeen-year-old girl whose life is changed forever when she's accused of accidentally murdering a child. Her punishment is to be sent off to Sword & Cross Reform School. But things turn around for Luce when she meets not one, but two handsome boys who appear to be falling for her. But there's more to these two than meets the eye. Jeremy Irvine plays Daniel Grigori, who has a deep connection to Luce that she's only beginning to suspect. Harrison Gilbertson plays Cameron 'Cam' Briel, a bad boy whose charm hides a dark secret.
Fans of Lauren Kate's novels should be happy to spot Luce in a dress similar to the one featured on the series' cover art, as seen below:
Of course, those unfamiliar with the series might nonetheless be compelled by this portrait of three impossibly pretty people. Personally, I was intrigued by how Gilbertson and Irvine here look like two of my childhood crushes. Dare to compare Jeremy Irvine to Doogie Howser-era Neil Patrick Harris:
And Harrison Gilbertson to 10 Things I Hate About You-era Heath Ledger:
Is it just me?
Also on board for the first film in the potential Fallen franchise are Joely Richardson as Ms. Sophia Bliss, Sianoa Smit-McPhee as Mary Margaret 'Molly' Zane, Juliet Aubrey as Doreen Price, Hermione Corfield as Gabrielle 'Gabbe' Givens, Daisy Head as Arriane Alter, Malachi Kirby as Roland Sparks, and Lola Kirke as Pennyweather ‘Penn’ Van Syckle-Lockwood.
Nichole Millard and Kathryn Price, co-writers of the 2007 Dwayne Johnson comedy The Game Plan adapted the screenplay with Touristas's scribe Michael Ross. Scott Hicks, who won acclaim helming such celebrated dramas as the Academy Award-winning Shine and Oscar-nominated Snow Falling on Cedars, will direct. No release date has yet been announced for Fallen, but it's expected the teen romance will open in 2015.
