‘Adrift’ Gallery Updates

I’ve updated the gallery with screen captures from Adrift, one of my favorite Shailene projects and probably her strongest performance (in my opinion, at least). I won’t spoil the film for those who have yet to see it, but please check it out when you have the chance – it’s definitely very underrated, and the fact that it’s based on real events just makes it even more compelling. In addition to captures from the film, the bonus features have also been uploaded to the gallery. Enjoy!

Shailene Woodley Joins Crime Drama ‘After Exile’ With Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf

THE WRAP – “Big Little Lies” star Shailene Woodley has joined the cast of “After Exile,” an indie crime drama starring Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

“After Exile” will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern from a script by Anthony Thorne and Michael Tovo, who wrote the film’s story based on true events from his life.

Woodley will play a character who grew up with LaBeouf’s and whose fractured relationship with him leads him to him turning to drugs and falling into depression.

LaBeouf is playing an ex-convict just released from prison after killing an innocent man following a violent robbery. He tries to re-enter society while working with his father, played by De Niro, to prevent his younger brother from falling into a similar life of drugs and crime. De Niro’s character is also an ex-con who years earlier lost his wife and still struggles with alcoholism and guilt, even as he hopes to prevent his sons from following his same path.

Thorne is also producing “After Exile” alongside Steve Snyder of Pacific Shore Films, which is financing the film. Les Cohen is executive producing, and production is expected to begin this October in Philadelphia.

On the film end, Woodley last starred in the survival story “Adrift” from director Baltasar Kormákur, and she’ll next be seen in Drake Doremus’s love story “Endings, Beginnings,” which will make its premiere at Toronto next month. Woodley is represented by Hyperion, Management 360, and Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.

News of Woodley’s casting was first reported by Deadline.

Shailene for Vanity Fair Italia

I’ve updated the gallery with a new photoshoot of Shailene, this time for Vanity Fair Italia–and it features some really striking looks. The behind the scenes video from the shoot can also be viewed below, with some really gothic and atmospheric vibes that make me hope to see Shailene in something of this style on film one day.

Relaunch of Simply Shailene

After a long period of absence, I am so glad to be able welcome fans back to the site! For some of the visitors who frequented this site prior to my departure in the fall of 2015, I’m Alexa, the original founder of the site back in 2012. I recently took it back earlier this year and have been working behind the scenes in my spare time to try and bring the site back up-to-date and also expand upon existing content. Shailene’s career has taken many different turns in the time since I was last overseeing the site, and so it only felt right to bring the site into this new era, too.

Our previous gallery has been uploaded to a new subdomain, and it expands quite extensively on what was previously offered. This includes improved quality and dimensions of thousands of photos, as well as the addition of many others. To put things simply, my aim has been to refresh the site – and it’s still a work in progress, but I hope you’ll still be able to enjoy all that it currently offers. I’d also like to thank both Annie and Renee for their work on the site during the time they spent overseeing it – and for keeping it online for all of these years!

Please do let me know if you spot any issues with the site, any missing links, or even any suggestions you might have for me. I’m really looking forward to covering the exciting developments of Shailene’s career with you all again!
