‘Dear Evan Hansen’ Film Adaptation Adds Amandla Stenberg

When Dear Evan Hansen heads to the big screen from Broadway, it will now have The Hate U Give‘s Amandla Stenberg in the cast. She joins the previously-announced Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart) and Ben Platt, who is rumored to reprise his role as Evan after originating the role on the stage. The story, being adapted by Universal Pictures, follows a socially anxious high schooler (Hansen) who makes up a tale that leads to him befriending the family of a classmate who died by suicide.
