Joey King’s dream come true as she’s going to work on Uglies for Netflix
Kissing Booth star Joey King is set to work on the upcoming whimsical novel Uglies for Netflix. Speaking to Deadline at the Bullet Train premiere, the The Princess actress expressed her joy at working on the new film because she read her entire trilogy as a child.
“That’s very interesting to me. The Uglies books meant a lot to me as a kid,” the 23-year-old said on the red carpet at the David Leitch premiere.
She continued, “To be able to do this and be the lead in these movies and also have fun doing it… what a dream come true! I was 11 years old when I loved books.
Meanwhile, Joey set her beats up in a slit white dress consisting of part fringe skirt and part blazer as she attended the premiere with her fiancé Steven Piet.
For starters, Uglies, a sci-fi novel by Scott Westerfield, will be directed by McG while King, Jamie King and Westerfield will serve as executive producers.
