John Boyega joins Emma Watson in 'The Circle'




John Boyega is certainly working with role model leading men. Boyega, who catapulted from the indie gem Attack The Block to the lead role of Finn in the JJ Abrams-directed film Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens — has been tapped to star opposite Tom Hanks and Emma Watson in the James Ponsoldt-directed and scripted adaptation of Dave Eggers’ book The Circle. In The Circle, Boyega will play Ty, the iconized boy-wonder visionary of the Circle, an Internet monopoly which links users’ personal emails, social media, banking and purchasing with their universal operating system. The result is one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. He and an employee (Watson) develop a relationship as the perils of life in a digital age inevitably arise.

Eden, can the comment above be removed? It's horrifying.

Deleted the two as soon as I saw them. I fear more of the same will be posted though. People are sickening.

Being nosey - what comment was that? I hope it wasn't racist.

Eden said...

It was.

I would truly like to see a diverse multi-cultural cast. I think the cirlce lends itself to this. The cirlce could show the multiple faces of ethnic groups in good actors. I think John Boyega is a good start. I would also like to see Katie Leung. A good book and should be a great movie that makes one think about the direction we are going in media.

it's that African American stormtrooper who is destined to destroy the new star wars movie.

I think that racism should not be encouraged and we should promote the new comer John Boyega which is playing as Finn "The Stormtrooper". He is dressed in a very amazing way which should stop the racism from entering into the fans minds. For a close look on his costume visit my blog http://goo.gl/vDMPhQ
