EXCLUSIVE: ‘Stranger Things’ Alum Charlie Heaton To Star In Romantic Comedy ‘The Life And Death Of Adam Riley’
Exclusive: ‘Stranger Things’ star Charlie Heaton has found his next project.
The GWW has exclusively learned that Heaton will be starring in a romantic comedy called ‘The Life And Death Of Adam Riley’. The movie is a romantic comedy with no romance and very little humor. When Adam Riley (Heaton) discovers that his childhood friend has turned his romantic foibles into a screenplay, he’s forced to look back over his life and question how he ended up in such an emotional quagmire.
Heaton is best known for playing Jonathon Byers in the hit Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’, as well playing Cannonball in the yet-to-be released Marvel movie ‘The New Mutants’. Heaton also starred in the horror movie ‘Marrowbone’ with ‘New Mutants’ co-star Anya Taylor-Joy.
‘Random Acts Of Violence’ director Ashely Cahill is writing and directing the pic for Tradition Pictures, with Brian Smith, Matthew Einstein, and Brandon Henry Rodriguez producing. Filming will commence this October in England. No release date has been set.
