Two of JJJ‘s faves, Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson, are set to star in the big screen adaption of “Everything Everything”.
Via THR, the project is based off of Nicola Yoon’s novel, which follows Maddy (Stenberg), a teen who has severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), a rare disease that causes her to be allergic to practically everything.
She has spent 17 years hiding out in her home, only seeing her mother and her nurse, Carla. But when a boy named Olly (Robinson) moves in next door, Maddy begins to fall in love.
Stella Meghie will direct the movie and set to start production in September.
Amandla Stenberg opens up about youth activism in this poignant op-ed piece for Teen Vogue.
The 17-year-old actress and activist talks about working with No Kid Hungry to tackle the harrowing statistic that one in fives kids in the U.S. can’t count on their next meal.
“Our generation is more than just a hashtag. We are the next generation of hunger leaders and advocates, taking a stand and not allowing our peers and families to go hungry,” Amandla wrote. “We are no different from any committed movement of passionate people who see a brighter future for generations to come. We just happen to talk about it in 140 characters or less. I’m encouraged to see my friends and peers use their online power for the better. They inspire me to stand up for all I care about.”
