Peyton List's career is on fire right now: right off the heels of her latest movie projects, The Swap and The Thinning, the actress is going to be in yet another upcoming film! It was just announced that Peyton will be starring opposite The Giver and Vampire Academy actor Cameron Monaghan in new movie called Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet, based off of the popular book.
The Hollywood Reporter explains that "the film, described as The Perks of Being a Wallflower meets American Beauty, is an adaptation of Joanne Proulx's novel about Luke (Monaghan), who foresees the death of his new best friend Stan, the most popular guy in school. When the premonition becomes reality, Luke is ostracized and labeled a freak, while at the same time he's falling for Stan’s girl Faith (List) and dealing with more premonitions."
Director Robin Hays already had some poignant words to say about the tale. "Yes, Luke predicts death, but sometimes death teaches us to live," she told THR. "To me, that’s what this story, this film, is about: the moments we should pay more attention to and the spaces between those moments."
Peyton excitedly shared the news of her casting on her Instagram Story, posting a screenshot of a tweet featuring herself and Cameron.
The movie is reportedly set to begin filming on March 23, though no word has been released about when and where we can expect to see the finished product.
This is definitely going to be a dramatically different new role for Peyton, and we simply can't wait to see what she does with the character.
