Production is set to begin shortly on the upcoming film adaption of the dystopian trilogy book The Darkest Minds. The series follows Ruby Daly, a 16-year-old girl who escapes her camp and joins up with a rag-tag group of fellow camp escapees on the run from the government after a disease called IAAN, kills 98% of America’s children with the surviving 2% developing superpowers and are placed in rehabilitation camp. Chad Hodge has written the script and Jennifer Yuh Nelson is signed on to direct, with Amandla Stenberg starring as Ruby.
A casting call has gone out seeking a young 10 year old light-toned African American female to portray the central character Ruby. Think a younger version of Amandla Stenberg.
