Exclusive: Miles Teller, who starred in the Footloose remake (he played the role that Chris Penn originated) and then starred in Rabbit Hole and Project X, will star alongside Shailene Woodley in the James Ponsoldt-directed The Spectacular Now. Pic is based on the Tim Tharp novel, and Teller plays a charming and popular high school senior who lives for the moment and as a project begins to date a social outcast and realizes he has the power to permanently impact someone’s life. Tom McNulty, Billy Rosenberg and Dan Cohen are producing, and production begins this summer in Athens, Ga. Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber wrote the script. I’ve heard that Teller is also being eyed by Sony Pictures for the primary role in The Kitchen Sink, a genre script that has a lot of heat on it at the studio. Not bad for a kid who came »
