Miles Teller to Reunite with Shailene Woodley in ‘ADRIFT’
Miles Teller is in talks to join Shailene Woodley in the upcoming survival film ADRIFT from STX Entertainment. Baltasar Kormakur will direct the film, which is based on the true story about a woman who sets off on a sailing trip to Tahiti with her fiance. But after a massive storm, the woman finds herself alone at sea with her boat in ruins.
The story looks back on their relationship as she attempts to save them on the 1,500 mile trip to Hawaii. Teller would play Woodley’s husband in the film. Written by Aaron and Jordan Kandell, the film is eyeing to shoot this summer.
This project would mark another collaboration between Woodley and Teller after working on films like The Spectacular Now and all three Divergent.
Teller has two films that will be released, including the true-life fire fighting story Granite Mountain on September 22, the PTSD film Thank You for Your Service, based on the 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winning book of the same name by David Finkel. He’s also set to star in his first TV original series Too Old to Die Young directed by Nicolas Winding Refn for Amazon.
