Kiersey Clemons to Star in Marc Webb’s Next Film Opposite Callum Turner

Kiersey Clemons is set to star opposite Callum Turner and Jeff Bridges in the Amazon Studios film “The Only Living Boy in New York.”

Variety first reported that Clemons had been offered to play the female lead and sources now say the deal is closed. Kate Beckinsale also stars with Marc Webb on board to direct the film.

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. Details about Clemons’ role are unknown.

Amazon will finance and distribute movie. Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa are producing and John Fogel will exec produce.

Although Clemons is currently working on several projects, this is likely to be the next one released since production is expected to start this fall. She was recently offered the role of Iris West in Warner Bros. “The Flash” starring Ezra Miller. She most wrapped production on Sony’s “Flatliners” opposite Ellen Page and Diego Luna, which is set for release in Aug. 2017. She was also recently seen in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” and the Netflix anthology series “Easy.”

She is repped by UTA and MJMG and Mach 1 Management.
