Not Okay star Dylan O’Brien is set to star in the upcoming LGBTQ+ film Ponyboi. The movie, which Esteban Arango directs, follows the emotional coming-of-age journey of the titular character – who is described as an “intersex runaway” living in New Jersey. “He works at a laundromat and hustles as a sex worker.
But after a mysterious encounter with a man from his dreams, he learns that perhaps he is worthy of leaving his seedy life in New Jersey behind,” the official synopsis reads.
Alongside O’Brien’s involvement, writer/director River Gallo is set to play the titular role, with Pose’s Indya Moore and The Haunting of Bly Manor star Victoria Pedretti rounding out the cast.
Back in November, Gallo announced that the film officially wrapped in a heartfelt Instagram post. “That’s a wrap on PONYBOI, my very first feature film I wrote and starred in.
