In 2012, Drake Doremus (“Like Crazy”) directed the unique web-series “The Beauty Inside,” starring Topher Grace and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The show centers around a man named Alex, who has a different body every day. This causes problems as he falls in love with a woman, played by Winstead. Every different body Alex finds himself in is played by a different actor, and the film will follow the same path as it will cast several different actors for the lead role, with Clarke taking on Winstead’s role.

The web series was adapted into a Korean movie in 2015, but now Neustadter and Weber will have a chance to put their own twist on the project. The screenwriting team has become a very popular duo in Hollywood, writing such gems as “500 Days of Summer” and “The Spectacular Now.” Doremus’ web series was already a fantastically original idea, winning the Daytime Emmy prize for Outstanding New Approach to a Daytime Series, so it will be interesting to see what Neustadter and Weber do with the project.
