Young Americans

Dane DeHaan and Daniel Radcliffe with director John Krokidas. PLEASE sign the petition to make the reunion happen

“Young Americans” with Dane DeHaan, Daniel Radcliffe (dir. John Krokidas) has been greenlit!

Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan will be reteaming with their Kill Your Darlings director John Krokidas for another real-life inspired film, trading in their roles as Beat Generation writers for ambitious, would-be politicians.

StarStream Media announced that the company will finance and produce Krokidas’ Young Americans, based on the Black List script by Wes Jones. The film is inspired by the real lives of Karl Rove, played by DeHaan, and Lee Atwater, played by Radcliffe, on a cross-country road trip as ambitious college students.

The film will portray Rove as more of a straight-laced student who is running to be the head of the College Republicans at his university with the help of Atwater. Atwater decides to take his friend on a trip through the American South, during which they run into Katie King, played by Amanda Seyfried, who may pose a threat to the two boys’ ambitions. In real life, Rove would famously become “The Architect” for President George W. Bush’s two presidential campaigns, while Atwater became advisor to both Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, as well as chairman of the Republic National Committee.

Young Americans is set to go into production this fall, produced by StarStream’s Kim Leadford, as well as Liz Destro of Destro Films and Frank Frattaroli from circle of Confusion. XYZ FIlms is coordinating international sales rights at the Cannes Film Festival later this month.

It feels amazing to be a part of this positive, full of love and support fandom. Because of you all we are now one step closer to having Young Americans actually happen.

And of course I would like to say a few “special” thank you’s. (I will be mentioning twitter names, so that other people can follow you guys or express their thank you’s as well). First off all, I’d like to say how grateful I am to @nerdygayidiot for setting up the petition, for coming up with this great idea and for being an inspiration in this whole thing.
Then, of course, a big thank you to @dananddane for coming up with creative posts (as she always does), ideas for tumblr edits that attracted attention of a lot of people. Thank you for being a loyal and great supporter of Dane+Dan+John trio throughout all these months! Thanks for being a real heart and motivation force in this movement.
A very special thank you to my lovely friend @innulya_krasava who was promoting the petition among Dane’s Russian fans in Dane’s biggest & best VK community. Dane has a lot of fans here, and thanks to @innulya_krasava they had a chance to actively participate in the support of the petition.
A few other “personal” thank you’s to @aisu10, @iiikus and @Merlynpink (who is, btw, a center of Dane’s Chinese fan community!) for constantly supporting the petition.

The last, but not the least, I’d like to thank @krokasaurusrex (John Krokidas) for directing a real masterpiece that affected me & other fans in so many ways (I am speaking about “Kill Your Darlings“). I am really hopeful that John will get a chance to re-unit with Dane & Dan in this new project.

Young Americans [originally titled ‘College Republicans‘] is a film that will reunite actors Dane DeHaan, Daniel Radcliffe and Kill Your Darlingsdirector John Krokidas.

The screenplay, by Wes Jones, topped the 2010 Black List [a list featuring the best un-produced screenplays].

The script is based on a true story from 1973 centred around Karl Rove. Rove, claimed to be played by DeHaan, runs a campaign for national College Republican Chairman. Under the guidance of his campaign manager Lee Atwater, supposedly Radcliffe, Rove’s campaign is far from clean.Their campaign includes a wild road trip intended to drum up support. Despite all the political machinations, however, the focus is really on the friendship between the two, and that’s something that Radcliffe and DeHaan could do a lot with.” [from entertainmentwise.com]

From an interview with Daniel Radcliffe:
“If you had a dream project – if there was a movie of any size or scale – whatever – that you could do, what would it be?”

Radcliffe: “Well at the moment the project that I really want to do is called College Republicans. Hopefully, it would be with myself and Dane DeHaan and John Krokidas who directed Kill Your Darlings. And we’d all sort of get to work together again. So hopefully – at the moment, like that’s my dream project. ‘Cause it’s been up and down for a few years now in terms of if we’re gonna get it done. So, at the moment, that’s my dream” [http://youtu.be/MrI5iBh-3dM?t=7m12s]

Encouraged by John Krokidas via twitter (@krokasaurusrex), we are making this petition to say we would love for this film to get made. We adored Dan, Dane & John’s work in Kill Your Darlings and we very much want to see more from them.
