‘Florida Project’ Breakout Brooklynn Prince Joins Angelina Jolie in ‘One and Only Ivan’

“Florida Project’s” breakout star Brooklynn Prince is in talks to join Angelina Jolie in “The One and Only Ivan,” Disney’s live-action/animated adaptation of the award-winning book penned by Katherine Applegate.

Thea Sharrock will helm the pic from a script by Mike White. Brigham Taylor has come on as a producer, joining Allison Shearmur and Jolie.

The book centers on a silverback gorilla named Ivan who lives in a cage in a shopping mall along with an elephant named Stella and a stray dog called Bob. Ivan does not remember life before the mall, but when a baby elephant named Ruby enters and Ivan finds himself taking care of her, he begins to rediscover his previous life and concocts a plan to take the baby elephant away from their abusive owner.

Prince will voice Ruby opposite Jolie’s Stella. The studio will now start to cast the non-voice actors of the film.

The young star was recently seen in A24’s “The Florida Project,” which is already being considered a major player this award season.

Prince just signed with UTA and is also repped by Thirty Three Management and Hansen Jacobson.
