20 year old Bill Milner (represented by Curtis Brown) will star as Tom, a role previously attached to his Son of Rambow co-star Will Poulter, with Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams (represented by Louise Johnston Management) playing Lucy, the girl he secretly loves.
The pair previously appeared together in the BBC ghost story The Secret of Crickley Hall.
They will star alongside Rory Kinnear and Miranda Richardson in the film which is based on the novel by Kevin Brooks.
A super hero thriller for the digital generation. Tom’s average teenage existence is turned on its head when a violent encounter with local thugs leaves fragments of shattered iPhone embedded in his brain. Tom knows, sees, and can do more than any normal boy ever could. With his new powers he sets out seek revenge on the gang, who also assaulted Lucy. Taking the law into his own electric hands he faces moral decisions as well as fearsome local gangsters.
Directed by Adam Randall, and produced by Emily Leo for Wigwam Films, with a script by Joe Barton, iBoy will shoot in London.
