“Shameless” star Jeremy Allen White, pictured, has landed his first lead role in a studio movie, DreamWorks’ found-footage film Glimmer, TheWrap reports.
White is in negotiations to star in the time-travel thriller that Disney will distribute in U.S. theaters under its deal with DreamWorks, which had no comment on the casting.
“Glimmer is a found-footage film about a group of teenagers who take a camping trip to investigate a series of missing persons and wind up discovering a portal that takes them back in time and traps them in the 1970s. When one of them changes the past, the effects start to snowball with tragic consequences.”
Commercials veteran Ringan Ledwidge is directing from Carter Blanchard’s sci-fi script, which was voted to the Top 10 of the 2012 Black List. “Gossip Girl” creator Josh Schwartz handled the most recent rewrite.
