English model-actress Cara Delevingne may be surfing along with the Beach Boys musical All Summer Long, from producers Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, and John Stamos. The Pan co-star is in talks for a lead role in the musical film which Michael Sucsy is set to direct for Fox 2000. The studio shelled out $2 million in 2010 for the pitch from Susannah Grant along with rights to the Beach Boys catalogue in a 1960s California-set story inspired by the crooners’ music.
Hairspray and Chicago producers Zadan and Meron teamed previously with Stamos on the 2000 ABC TV biopic The Beach Boys: An American Family, which the three exec produced. Further details on All Summer Long are under wraps but Delevingne would play Caroline. Last month the project was selected as one of 26 projects to receive tax credit cash in the California Film Commission’s annual lottery.
Delevingne only recently transitioned into acting after launching a successful modeling career for the likes of Burberry, DKNY, and Victoria’s Secret. She was named Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2012, the same year she made her film debut in Anna Karenina opposite Keira Knightley and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Delevingne has since filmed roles in London Fields with Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, British coming of age indie Kids In Love, Justin Chadwick’s Tulip Fever for The Weinstein Co., and WB’s Pan with Anna Karenina helmer Wright. She next appears in Michael Winterbottom’s Face Of An Angel which premieres next month at the Toronto Film Festival. She’s repped by WME and United Agents in the UK.
