Lucas Cruikshank and Jaime King are attached to star in the graphic novel adaptation "Emo Boy" for Vanguard Films says The Hollywood Reporter.
Stephen Emond's series revolved around the travails of the melodramatic title hero, a high schooler who believes he has "emo powers." Cruikshank will play Emo Boy, and King will play Mrs. Hutcherson, a teacher and "emo sympathizer."
Emond wrote the screenplay, and Kyle Newman ("Fanboys") is attached to direct. John H. Williams and Robert Moreland are producing.
