Miles Teller is currently in talks to join Shailene Woodley in the survival film Adrift
Miles Teller (Whiplash, The Spectacular Now) is in talks to join Shailene Woodley (Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars) in the upcoming survival film Adrift from STX Entertainment, according to THR. The film is set to be directed by Baltasar Kormakur (Everest) and is based on the true story about a “woman who sets off on a sailing trip to Tahiti with her fiance. But after a massive storm, the woman finds herself alone at sea with her boat in ruins.” The story reportedly looks back on their relationship as she attempts to save them on the 1,500 mile trip to Hawaii. Teller would play Woodley’s husband in the film. The script was written by Aaron and Jordan Kandell (Disney’s Moana). Adrift would likely begin shooting this summer.
Teller is known for his acting work in films like 2013’s The Spectacular Now, the Divergent series, 2015’s Fantastic Four and 2016’s War Dogs with Jonah Hill and Bradley Cooper. Teller has a couple films coming up, including the true-life fire fighting story Granite Mountain, which will hit theaters on September 22, 2017 and the PTSD film Thank You for Your Service, based on the 2013 based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book of the same name by David Finkel. He’s also set to star in the upcoming original Amazon drama series Too Old to Die Young, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.
Woodley and Teller have worked together a number of times. They’ve co-starred in all three Divergent films as well as The Spectacular Now.
