Get ready for a ton of your favorite stars to come together in an epic new star-studded film. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Jessie's Peyton List, The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev, Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams, The Space Between Us' Asa Butterfield, and Teen Wolf's Tyler Hoechlin have joined the cast of the upcoming movie, Departures, which also stars Community's Ken Jeong, Anchorman's David Koechner, and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Tituss Burgess. Talk about fandoms colliding!
The plot of the coming-of-age drama is all about "Skye [played by Maisie Williams], a spirited teenager with a terminal illness who befriends Calvin (Asa Butterfield), a 19-year-old hypochondriac working as a baggage handler at the local airport," according to the site. "Calvin helps Skye carry out her eccentric 'bucket list' of things to do before she dies. In the process, he learns to confront and conquer his own fears, including falling in love with the beautiful, but seemingly untouchable, Izzy (Nina Dobrev)."
"[Ken] Jeong will star as Officer Al, a sympathetic policeman. [David] Koechner plays Bob, Calvin’s supportive father. [Tyler] Hoechlin stars as Frank, Calvin’s older brother, and [Peyton] List stars as Ashley, Skye’s estranged and concerned friend," THR adds.
The movie is going to be directed Peter Hutchings, who as just a part of Peyton List's recently-released movie, The Outcasts. So not only is this project going to be an amazing coming-together for an all-star cast, but it's also a little reunion too!
"Fergal [Rock] has written a beautiful screenplay and we are excited to work with Peter Hutchings and our friends at BCDF," producer Nicolas Chartier said of the project. "This film will certainly resonate with the vast teen audience the world over."
We can't wait to meet all of these characters!
