Logan Lerman and Josh Hutcherson in Talks to Star in ‘The Bluff’ Together
It’s needless to say — but we’re going to say it anyway — that Logan Lerman and Josh Hutcherson both caught big breaks this year. (Logan as the lead in The Perks of Being a Wallflower opposite Emma Watson; Josh in The Hunger Games opposite Jennifer Lawrence.) So it was only a matter of time before someone came up with the brilliant idea of putting both stars on the big screen together. And it looks like that time may be sooner than expected…
According to MovieHole.net, filmmaker Jonathan Dillon hopes to cast the two in his next film, The Bluff, a tween/teen take on The Hangover. As mentioned by Just Jared Jr., the movie focuses on two high school seniors (presumably Logan and Josh) who “hover at the bottom rung of the social ladder. After being convinced to hack into his father’s Ameritrade account for a quick insider’s trading bet, Chip [not sure which of the actors] soon finds himself in the hole 750,000 dollars. To get the money back before his parents return from vacation, the boys head to Las Vegas and end up in the middle of the world’s largest poker tournament with not only Chip’s father’s money at stake, but their lives…” Whoa.
This wouldn’t be the first time the boys meet, as Logan and his Perks co-stars presented Josh the title of Best Male Performance at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.
