Following the success of his big-screen debut in Super 8, 15-year-old Joel Courtney has just landed a couple more projects. Variety reports that the actor is currently in talks to star as Tom Sawyer in Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn and he’s also in negotiations for the indie The Healer. Tom Sawyer will be written and directed by Jo Kastner, based on the classic Mark Twain tale. Filming is scheduled to begin this August in Bulgaria, because it’s the one place in the world that looks exactly like 1850’s Missouri.
Additionally, Courtney is in negotiations to star in the indie pic The Healer. Written and directed by Giorgio Serafini, the film centers on two young boys who go out into the woods with their ailing father to renew their bond, only to encounter a supernatural adventure, as all stories that begin with kids going into the woods with their sick dad do. Production is set to get underway this September in North Carolina.
