Actress and model Cara Delevingne is in talks to play the female lead in Fox 2000’s Beach Boys-themed musical “All Summer Long,” which will be directed by Michael Sucsy (“The Vow”), TheWrap has learned.
Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who teamed on the hit movie musicals “Hairspray” and “Chicago,” are producing “All Summer Long” with John Stamos, though the film has not received an official greenlight yet.
Sucsy is directing from a script by Susannah Grant, who created a fictional story and characters to compliment the Beach Boys songs that will drive the film, which takes its title from one of the band’s songs/albums.
Meron and Zadan served as executive producers on ABC’s 2000 TV movie “The Beach Boys: An American Family” along with Stamos, who played with and remains close to the legendary group.
Delevingne is on a roll of late, as she’ll star in Michael Winterbottom’s “The Face Of An Angel,” which is set to premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival. She just wrapped Joe Wright’s “Pan” starring Hugh Jackman and the Weinstein Company drama “Tulip Fever.”
The up-and-coming actress, who made her feature debut in Wright’s “Anna Karenina,” also has “London Fields” and “Kids in Love” on the horizon.
Delevingne is represented by WME and United Agents.
