Super 8 star star Joel Courtney has entered negotiations to join both Jo Kastner's new adaptation of "Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn" and the supernatural flavored "The Healer" reports Variety.
Courtney will play Sawyer in the new adaptation of Mark Twain's classic period story that follows the journey of "a white boy who runs off with an older black man".
Shooting begins in August in Bulgaria--with Kastner ready to adapt, direct and produce.
Courtney may then jump to Giorgio Serafini's "The Healer"' which follows an ailing father who takes his two teenage kids into the woods to renew the bond they shared before a divorce.
Shooting begins this September in North Carolina.
Young Joel was quite good in Super 8 for a first timer---He should do well as long as those around him play it smart until he turns 18
