Tavi Gevinson may be returning to LA sooner than we thought. Following her mega successful Rookie Road Trip, which just wrapped up at Space15Twenty, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the teen blogger sensation has just been signed by esteemed Hollywood talent agency UTA and is set to star in her first feature film.
According to the story, Gevinson has scored the lead role in writer/director Nicole Holofcener's yet-to-be-titled film for Fox Searchlight and will be joined by acting vets Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini. She'll play "Chloe, an only child who never received much attention from her parents, forcing her to grow up faster than her peers."
