Mandy Moore has joined Amandla Stenberg in Fox’s dystopian thriller “Darkest Minds,” directed by “Kung Fu Panda 3” helmer Jennifer Yuh Nelson.
The movie is an adaptation of the YA trilogy by Alexandra Bracken in which a pandemic kills most of America’s children and teenagers. When some of the survivors develop superpowers, they are imprisoned.
Fox-based Shawn Levy is producing through his 21 Laps company along with Dan Levine and Dan Cohen. Nelson is directing from a script by Chad Hodge.
