Kellan Lutz And Camilla Belle Join Love Is All You Need

The plot for Kim Rocco Shields' indie drama Love Is All You Need? sounds like it has a sort of Twlight Zone twist to its setting, with the story taking place in a reality where homosexuality is considered the norm and a plot that involves a man and a woman engaging in a secret romance. The reference may be even more fitting (in a shamelessly punning sort of way) as Twilight star Kellan Lutz has reportedly signed on for a role in the WingSpan Pictures drama.

The Hollywood Reporter posted the news, stating that Lutz has joined Love Is All You Need?, along with Camilla Belle (who is in final negotiations). Based on a short by Shields with the feature script co-written by David Tillman, the film, which follows several storylines set in a world where homosexuality is considered the norm (from the short film's website, the tagline is "…Where ‘gay’ was ‘straight’ – and ‘straight’ was ‘gay’"), will have Lutz and Belle playing an aspiring journalist and a popular star quarterback respectively. They apparently form a secret, romantic relationship which eventually goes public, resulting in them being bullied.

In addition to the Twilight films, Lutz had appeared in Immortals and the 2010 re-imagining of A Nightmare on Elm Street. He's also set to lend his voice to the title role in Constantin Film's CGI animated (with motion capture) Tarzan. Meanwhile, Belle's past credits include From Prada to Nada, Push and 10,000 BC. She's also set to appear in Marcio Garcia's Open Road.

The premise for Love Is All You Need? certainly sounds like an intriguing one, and I'll be interested to see what other storylines are involved, as well as who else is cast as the feature continues to take shape.
