The Andrew Stanton helmed adaptation being produced by Disney and Pixar has cast its two leads, Taylor Kitsch (Riggins!) and Lynn Collins, as they will help hopefully prop up a successful franchise for Disney in the future.

Like I said, still a couple of years away, but this is one you need to be excited about. Full story at Variety.
