"Super 8" Star Joel Courtney is Tom Sawyer in "Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn"

"Super 8" Star Joel Courtney is Tom Sawyer in "Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn"Submit Comment
"Super 8" star Joel Courtney is in negotiations to star in "Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn" film, which is a big screen adaptation of Mark Twain's classic.

The new movie is written and will be directed by Jo Kastner. The plan is to begin filming this August in Bulgaria. In the book, Tom Sawyer and his pal Huckleberry Finn have great adventures on the Mississippi River, pretending to be pirates, attending their own funeral, and witnessing a murder.

Courtney, who is only 15-years-old, had zero acting credits when he auditioned for "Super 8" last summer while visiting his brother in Los Angeles. He hoped to take a few acting classes and possibly get a part in a commercial, but became involved in a super-secret casting process in which hundreds of kids were told they were trying out for a small indie that Abrams was producing called "Little Darlings."

Good for him. He was quite good in "Super 8" and not half as annoying as child actors use to be.

This could actually be a cool idea I've always liked the characters and we haven't really seen a decent attempt of the film together.

Wonder if they will keep the "N" word?


Good on him too.

He's got talent. Hope it pays off for him.

Super 8 was such a letdown, it just wasn't as good and "magical" as the trailers made it out to be. It was standard in my eyes.

But I liked Joel, as with all the other kids. Especially the fat one... at times.

@jdl107: I agree. Definitely not what I thought it would be. But Joel's acting was acceptable considering he's never had acting experience! Hope he does well as Tom Sawyer!

I like how they're going to to start filming this quintessential American classic...in Bulgaria.

Hey, Shay, maybe you can get the kid some hookers. I'm sure your mother and sisters are up for it. Maybe even you.

I know shay will watch This because is his only chance in appearing in a Hollywood movie and he has a sexual fetish with epic Time piece movies.
