“Teen Wolf” star Dylan O’Brien continues to be in demand for big screen roles. Deadline reports found footage thriller “Glimmer” is hoping to snag O’Brien for the lead role, and is even moving the whole production back to January 2014 in order to accommodate him. Barring any new scheduling conflicts with the pushed back start date, O’Brien would join “Shameless” star Jeremy Allen White, who was the first to be cast in the film hoping to be the next “Chronicle.”
Ringan Ledwidge is directing the Carter Blanchard script which landed in the Top 10 of the 2012 Black List. The time-travel thriller centers around a group of teens who take a camping trip to investigate a series of missing persons, only to find a portal that can take them back in time instead. They travel to and are ultimately trapped in the 1970s, where one of them changes something, with – naturally – catastrophic results.
O’Brien plays goofy sidekick Stiles on MTV’s “Teen Wolf” series, now entering its 3rd season, and impressed us with a charming, earnest turn opposite Britt Robertson in last year’s Sundance coming of age drama “The First Time.” He will next be seen opposite Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn and Max Minghella in summer comedy “The Internship” and is currently filming the lead role in Wes Ball’s adaptation of James Dashner’s teen dystopian series “The Maze Runner.”
