Next Monday, we’re releasing the 2016 Young & Hungry List, our compilation of the new voices making names for themselves in Hollywood, as voted on by industry professionals. In preparation for its release, today we’re taking a look back at the 2012 Young & Hungry List writers — where they’ve been, and where they are today.
Steve McQueen has tapped Viola Davis for his adaptation of the heist thriller Widows. The film, which will be based on the 2002 British miniseries about a caper-gone-wrong, will be co-written Gillian Flynn.
For the fest’s centerpiece film, they have selected STX’s coming-of-age dramedy The Edge of Seventeen starring Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson while the closing night film will be Open Road’s boxing biopic Bleed For This.
