Relative unknown Ed Oxenbould will play Alexander, while Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner will be portraying the protagonist's parents.
Disney has found the child who will be having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
The studio is producing a film adaptation of Judith Viorst’s children’s book "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," which follows Alexander as he makes his way through a truly unfortunate series of events – everything from getting gum in his hair to finding nothing but people kissing on TV.
Actor Ed Oxenbould, who stars on the Australian TV series “Puberty Blues,” was recently cast as Alexander. Steve Carell of “The Office” and “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” actress Jennifer Garner had already come on board to play Alexander’s parents.
Disney is aiming for an October 2014 release date.
