The Hunger Games alum Amandla Stenberg has signed on to a new YA adaptation. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amandla is cast as the lead in the adaptation of Everything, Everything.
The Nicola Yoon book follows the life of Maddy, who suffers from an immunity disease that renders her allergic to everything and thus isolated from the world. When she gets a new neighbor, Olly, she begins to fall in love with him.
Opposite Amandla will be Nick Robinson as Olly.
This is Amandla’s second YA adaptation project, her third since her role of Rue. Earlier in the year, we heard she was set to star in the movie based on yet-to-be-published The Hate U Give.
