Secret Life’s Shailene Woodley is officially a big-time movie star. And though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 won’t hit theaters until 2014, when filming kicks off early next year, she’ll have a new man by her side.
Director Marc Webb recently announced that Chronicle’s Dane DeHaan will play Harry Osborn, aka her character Mary Jane Watson’s boyfriend, tweeting:
While Dane isn’t a Hollywood hotshot yet, he has been called a young Leonardo DiCaprio (mostly for his looks), and is known for his starring role in Chronicle and key supporting role in Lawless. Dane also recently completed The Place Beyond the Pines with Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper and Kill Your Darlings with Dexter’s Michael C. Hall and Daniel Radcliffe, and reportedly beat out big names like Eddie Redmayne, Sam Claflin, and Brady Corbet for the role of Harry. We can’t wait to see him and Shailene in action!
