EXCLUSIVE: Actor Nat Wolff is best known for his roles in films like The Fault in Our Stars, Paper Towns and Death Note, but now he is set to take his talent behind the camera with his directorial debut Youngest.
Written by Wolff, the short film will star June Van Patten, Austin Abrams and Michael Gandolfini, the son of James Gandolfini who will continue his father’s legacy in the upcoming prequel to The Sopranos, news that Deadline exclusively announced in January. Olivia Boreham-Wing and Jake Ryan round out the cast.
Making her film debut, Van Patten will star as Autumn, a young girl who recently lost her father. She bonds with Ethan (Gandolfini), one of her older sibling’s friends at a high school house party. When she experiences her first heartbreak, she takes matters into her own hands.
