Joey King Is Bringing ‘Uglies’ Book To Life With New Netflix Movie

Joey King will be starring in another Netflix movie!

The 21-year-old The Kissing Booth star is teaming up with director McG to adapt Scott Westerfeld’s popular dystopian fantasy novel “Uglies,” Deadline reports.

Joey will not only star in the film, but she will also serve as executive producer.

If you didn’t know, Uglies “is set in a world in which a compulsory operation at sixteen wipes out physical differences and makes everyone pretty by conforming to an ideal standard of beauty.”

Joey is no stranger to bringing books to screen, as The Kissing Booth movies are based off of a book series. She will also be adapting Jodi Picoult‘s novel “A Spark of Light” into a limited TV series.

Next week, Joey‘s new Blumhouse horror film The Lie will premiere on Prime Video. Check out the trailer here!
