Hoult, Shannon, Fanning Are “Young Ones”

Nicholas Hoult (“Warm Bodies”), Michael Shannon (“Take Shelter”), Elle Fanning (“Super 8”) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (“Let Me In”) have all joined the cast of Jake Paltrow’s futuristic thriller “Young Ones” for Subotica and Spier Films.

The story is set in a violent near-future where water has become the world’s most precious (and dwindling) resource. The story follows a fourteen-year-old boy forced use his wits to survive.

Paltrow (“The Good Night”) penned the script and is directing. Shooting got underway last week in South Africa’s Northern Cape desert.
