By Maryann Yin Comment

Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen will star in an adaptation of Andy Mulligan‘s young adult novel, Trash.

David Fickling Books, a UK-based company, published this book back in October 2010. Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Stephen Daldry will direct and Richard Curtis wrote the script. Here’s more from Deadline:

Sheen will play Father Juilliard, and Mara will play Olivia, an NGO worker, in the tale of three poverty-stricken boys (played by newcomers Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein) who discover something unusual, mysterious and dangerous in a city dump in the Third World-set story.
