After landing the role of Iris West in “The Flash” movie, Kiersey Clemons is keeping her hot streak rolling. The “Dope” actress is in talks to co-star opposite Callum Turner in Marc Webb’s upcoming untitled film.
The film was originally titled “The Only Living Boy in New York” and also has Jeff Bridges in final negotiations to star. Amazon could not be reached for comment.
Allan Loeb penned the script, which tells the tale of a young man who learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. The son tries to stop it, but ends up becoming involved with the woman as well.
Amazon Pictures is currently on board to finance and distribute the movie.
Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa are producing. John Fogel will exec produce. The film, while having been on Webb’s radar for some time, was put on hold while financing was worked out. Webb was also finishing production of his Fox Searchlight drama “Gifted” starring Chris Evans.
Clemons broke out after her work in the Sundance film “Dope.” Rick Famuyiwa then cast her as Iris West in Warner Bros. upcoming “Flash” movie.
Clemons recently finished filming Sony’s “Flatliners” remake and was most recently seen in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.”
She is repped by UTA, MJMG and Mach 1 Management.
