‘Stranger Things” Finn Wolfhard is in a new film with Ansel Elgort

The break-out star will appear along with the 'Baby Driver' actor in the forthcoming adaptation of 'The Goldfinch'

Finn Wolfhard is set to star in a new film, The Goldfinch, along with Baby Driver star Ansel Elgort.

The Stranger Things star will play Young Boris in the adaptation of Donna Tartt’s best-selling novel, which is being directed by Brooklyn filmmaker John Crowley.

The Goldfinch, which is being made by Warner Bros. and Amazon Studios, will also star Elgort as Theo, a young man who was taken in by a wealthy New York family after his mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The film will see the narrative split into two parts: one focusing on young Theo struggling to cope following his mother’s passing, and the other following adult Theo as he attempts to recover a stolen painting.

Wolfhard’s character is a Ukrainian student who befriends Theo during his childhood, with the two bonding over the fact that they have both lost their mothers.

As well as Wolfhard and Elgort, the likes of Sarah Paulson, Jeffrey Wright, Luke Wilson and Aneurin Barnard will also star in The Goldfinch, which will begin shooting later this month.

Last week, Elgort shared his latest single ‘Supernova’ – which serves as the title track from his upcoming debut EP.
