While he’s had a big year with smash-hit movies The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent, actor Ansel Elgort will soon be filming more projects, including the upcoming film Van Cliburn.
Ansel is set to play the title role of Van Cliburn in the movie.
According to Deadline: “The film is based on the Howard Reich book Van Cliburn, and Elgort will play the pianist in his formative years when, at age 23 in 1958, he emerged from out of nowhere to win the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow.”
Ansel won’t have to learn any new skills for the movie, as he graduated from LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts where he both danced and played the piano!
Congrats to Ansel on his newest role!
