Looks like 1981’s Endless Love is getting a 21st Century makeover: Endless Love (2014) is coming soon, and it stars Magic Mike‘s Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde (from 2013’s Carrie). Lots of new, shiny eye candy for all!
Here’s the synopsis, for folks who haven’t seen/can’t remember the original (or the book these films are based on):
Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike) and Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers) star in Universal Pictures’ ENDLESS LOVE, the story of a privileged girl and a charismatic boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. Directed by Shana Feste (Country Strong), the romantic drama co-stars Robert Patrick, Bruce Greenwood, Rhys Wakefield, Dayo Okeniyi, Emma Rigby and Joely Richardson. Scott Stuber and Pamela Abdy (Identity Thief) of Bluegrass Films are joined by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (Gossip Girl) of Fake Empire to produce the film from writers Josh Safran (Gossip Girl), Feste and Schwartz. Inspired by the 1979 novel and 1981 film of the same name, ENDLESS LOVE will be released on Valentine’s Day, 2014.
Yeah, like you had any doubt this teen chick flick would open on any other day.
Behold, stills from the film. Enjoy!
Has to be better than the original, because no actress could be less talented and less deserving of the role of Jade than the b**** who played her in 1981.
