By now, everyone knows that Michael Cera has taken the lead in Dimension Films adaptation of Youth in Revolt. He will play C.D. Payne's popular Nick Twisp character. About the film, Cera stated, "I'm very excited to do the movie, it's my favorite book of all time. And now I won't have to pay to get my hair cut."
Bob Weinstein is excited about the film, too. He said, "Like the book, Youth in Revolt will be a cutting edge film with lots of laughter. Michael Cera is fantastic and I think there is no one more perfect for the role of Nick Twisp."
Youth in Revolt is the irreverent story about the wild adventures of a teenage boy named Nick Twisp who meets the girl of his dreams while on a family vacation and has to turn his life and the lives of all those around him upside down in order to be with her.
David Permut will serve as producer on the film. Permut Presentations vice president of production Steve Longi will co-produce along with Miranda Freiberg. This will be a co-production between Permut Presentations and Shangri-La Entertainment. A director and additional cast are yet to be announced.
