“Baby Driver” star Ansel Elgort has reportedly been offered the lead role in “The Goldfinch,” the upcoming film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s acclaimed novel at Warner Bros. Pictures and Amazon Studios.
The story follows a young man named Theodore Decker who survives a terrorist bombing at an art museum – an attack that kills his mother.
From there, he tumbles through a series of adventures that finds him living in Las Vegas with his deadbeat father and, later, involved in art forgeries.
Filmmaker John Crowley had reportedly been meeting with several candidates for almost two months before finally giving Elgort the role of Theo. Filming on the $40 million film begins early 2018.
Elgort can next be seen opposite Taron Egerton in “The Billionaire Boys Club”.
