I thought it would come a little later in his career, but War Horse break-out star Jeremy Irvine has already completed his obligatory sappy romance (although, you could argue that his last role had some of that, just of a different kind). In Now Is Good he co-stars with Dakota Fanning, who leads the film sporting a British accent as a 17-year-old stricken with leukemia. With only spare moments left, she creates a bucket list to complete all while falling in love with Irvine.
It looks like a cross between A Walk to Remember and 50/50, with the tone leading towards the former. I’m interested to see where Irvine takes his career and hope he uses this as a jumping off point to get into more promising work. If nothing else, the duo probably had a fun time on set, talking about their Steven Spielberg experiences. Check out the trailer below via Yahoo, along with a poster.
Now Is Good hits UK theaters in April and Sony Pictures has yet to firm up US release plans.
