Zoey Deutch is sure leaving her ingénue days in the dust.
Barring the occasional misfire (for all involved), like Dirty Grandpa, the actress (TV’s Ringer) seems to be making quite the educated choices when it comes to her big-screen projects.
She’s about to be seen in Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!, and she has signed on to co-star opposite Nicholas Hoult in Danny Strong’s Rebel in the Rye, a buzzy and much-anticipated biopic of reclusive American writer J.D. Salinger.
Deutch will play Oona O’Neill, the daughter of the playwright Eugene and a fixture of the New York City social scene once upon a time. She and Salinger enjoyed a tumultuous time together.
Because what would a film be without a little love drama.
