The Hollywood Reporter says Lucas Cruikshank and Jaime King are attached to star in Emo Boy for Vanguard Films.
The live-action adaptation of the graphic novels created by Stephen Emond and published by SLG Comics will revolve around the travails of the melodramatic title hero, a high schooler who believes he has “emo powers.”
Emond wrote the screenplay, and Kyle Newman is attached to direct. Vanguard’s John H. Williams and Robert Moreland are producing.
Cruikshank will play Emo Boy, and King will play Mrs. Hutcherson, a teacher and “emo sympathizer.”
