Elijah Wood will put his boyish charm to interesting use in The Late Bloomer, a comedy about a man who learns right before he's about to turn 30 that he hasn't finished puberty. This isn't a high-concept studio comedy, either: The indie production is based on Ken Baker's real-life memoir Man Made: A Memoir of My Body. Randall Einhorn (who's helmed just about every episode of Wood's FX series Wilfred) will direct from a script by Paul Kaplan and Mark Torgove (NBC's Outsourced). [Variety]

• Miles Teller (Project X) is joining Zac Efron in the indie romcom Are We Officially Dating?, about three buddies who pledge to each other that they will each remain single — and then, wouldn’t you know it, they each begin to fall for someone. Writer-director Tom Gormican is making his feature debut with the project. [Variety]

• Richard Madden (i.e. Game of Thrones’ Robb Stark) will romance Rebecca Hall (The Town) in A Promise, a period drama about a budding couple torn apart due to World War I. Director  Patrice Leconte (Man on a Train) co-wrote the script with Jerome Tonnerre (Intimate Strangers). [Variety]
