Suki Waterhouse will star opposite Ansel Elgort in Jonathan. The 24-year-old model-turned-actress will play Elena, a woman who strikes up a relationship with one of the twins played by her Insurgent co-star in the sci-fi drama, despite the brothers having a pledge to stay single.
The movie – which has begun shooting, sees an ordinary guy leave his office job at noon every day to go home to sleep. When he wakes up, breakfast is waiting along with a video telling him about the second part of his day when his twin brother has taken over. Chaos ensues when Jonathan discovers John – both of whom are played by 22-year-old Ansel – has fallen in love with Elena, so he seeks the help of controlling doctor Mina Nariman (Patricia Clarkson) as he takes matters into his own hands.
Director Bill Oliver has also written the script, along with Peter Nickowitz and Gregory Davis.
The film is the latest in a string of projects for Suki, who was recently seen in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
She has a number of movies awaiting release, including Future World, The Bad Batch and Billionaire Boys Club.
And the stunning star recently admitted she finds acting much more fulfilling than modelling. She said: “When you model, you are not in control of the picture, of what you wear, of your hair and make-up. It’s fun but if you’re doing it every day, it’s hard to know who you are. With the acting, there’s meaning in what you’re doing, you’re collaborating with other people, you research, you make strong relationships. It’s more fulfilling. If I had to say goodbye to modeling tomorrow, I’d be fine about it.”
Jonathan is scheduled for release next year.
