Kellan Lutz and Camilla Belle are teaming up for a new independent movie called Love Is All You Need?
WingSpan Pictures announced today that they have closed a deal with Kellan and are in final negotiations with Camilla Belle for the indie based on the multi-award winning short. The film is set in a reverse world where homosexuality is the norm. The film follows multiple storylines between several characters – and cleverly illustrates the ripple effects of prejudice and bullying in a paradigm of a middle-American football college town.
In the film, Belle will play “Jude Klein” the star quarterback of Sparta University football team, who is adored by her large fan base and supported by her enthusiastic teammates. One fateful night, at a fraternity party, Jude meets “Ryan Morris” (Lutz) a handsome fraternity pledge and aspiring sports journalist. The two fall madly in love but must express their admiration for each other in secret, knowing how their society deems heterosexuality as disgusting and wrong. When Jude and Ryan’s romance becomes public, the two become publicly punished and bullied in horrific ways.
The feature film screenplay adaptation is written by Kim Rocco Shields and David Tillman, WingSpan’s Rachel Diana will produce along with Shields. The film is casted by Mary Vernieu and Lindsay Graham of Betty Mae Casting (Black Swan, Sin City, The Wrestler).
Sounds like a very interesting project. Congrats Kellan & Camilla!
