Upsetting news for all of Dane fans. I can’t bring myself to comment on this, so I’m just posting the news.
The title of the film is also changing to “College Republicans”
British actor George MacKay is set to replace Dane DeHaan in “Young Americans,” which has now been retitled “College Republicans,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
Dane DeHaan was attached to star as Karl Rove in John Krokidas’ sophomore feature, before the casting change. The film also stars Daniel Radcliffe and Amanda Seyfried.
“Unfortunately, I don’t think that movie is really going to work out, at least for me,” DeHaan said in a previous interview with TheWrap. “It’s a movie I’ve been really passionate about for a long time, and it looked like it was coming together so many times, but it’s a really difficult movie to find financing for, I think because of the subject matter.”
“I’m sorry to say that that’s no longer on the plate for me,” he added. “I can’t speak to anyone else involved. I don’t see any time in my schedule to be able to make that.”
DeHaan will star in the upcoming sci-fi movie, “Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” alongside Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen and Rihanna.
MacKay is best known for his movies, “Pride” and “Defiance,” in which he starred alongside Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber and Jamie Bell.
“College Republicans” is being produced by Bruce Cohen, Elizabeth Destro, Frank Frattaroli and Kim Leadford. There is no set start date for the movie’s production as of yet.
MacKay is repped by UTA and Premier PR.
