Looks like Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh) has a new project in the works. He is currently in talks to star in Universal’s Endless Love. Here are all the details.
Dayo Okeniyi is in negotiations to star opposite Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde in Universal’s Endless Love.
The role is a big one for Okeniyi, who is best known for playing Thresh in The Hunger Games, as it marks his biggest studio gig since that Lionsgate movie.
Shana Feste is directing, while Scott Stuber and Pam Abdy of Bluegrass Films and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage of Fake Empire are producing. J. Miles Dale is executive producing.
In the story about teens in a love triangle that turns a dark and disastrous corner, Okeniyi will play the role of Pettyfer’s mischievous and daredevil best friend.
Okeniyi will be seen next in the Sundance hit The Spectacular Now with Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller. He recently appeared on NBC’s Revolution and has a bit part in Regency’s September drama Runner Runner with Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake.
