‘The Giver’ Casts a 24 Year Old as 12 Year Old Jonas


Australian actor Brenton Thwaites will be spending plenty of time inside the pages of some very classic tales. He's already starring opposite Elle Fanning in 2014's "Maleficent" (as the prince, fittingly), and now Brenton has booked the lead role in the big-screen adaptation of Lois Lowry's 1993 children's novel, "The Giver."

The "Blue Lagoon: The Awakening" star will play an aged-up Jonas in the dystopian drama, which takes place in a society where pain has been eliminated through adhering to a plan known as the Sameness. Jonas has been selected as the next Receiver of Memory—responsible for the collective consciousness from before the Sameness. He inherits these memories from the Giver (hence the title of the novel). Jeff Bridges (who is also producing) will play the Giver.

Production on the film is slated to begin in the fall in South Africa.
