Spontaneous is based on Aaron Starmer’s young adult novel of the same name. The story is being adapted for the film by Brian Duffield, who will also serve as the director. Spontaneous will be Duffield’s directorial debut, but he’s written a number of films and TV shows, including The Babysitter, Insurgent and Jane Got a Gun.
The story is centred around a high school senior by the name of Mara Carlyle, played by Katherine Langford – who just wrapped up filming season 2 of 13 Reasons Why in December. Mara’s life is turned upside down when her classmates begin to spontaneously combust for no apparent reason. The remaining students band together, fearing the worst, but deciding how to live out their final moments before the impending nightmare claims them too.
Katherine will be joined by Charlie Plummer (Lean on Pete, All the Money in the World) and Hayley Law (who plays Valerie on Riverdale).
