Updated the gallery with a couple of images from the set of Lucas’ upcoming movie ‘Every Day’.
Netflix and CBC have announced the Season 2 renewal of praised series Anne With An E, from Miranda de Pencier’s Northwood Entertainment.
Season 2 will see an increased order from eight episodes in Season 1 to 10 episodes in Season 2 for premiere in 2018. Shooting begins this fall.
In addition to McNulty, the series stars Geraldine James (Marilla Cuthbert), R.H. Thomson (Matthew Cuthbert), Corrine Koslo (Rachel Lynde), Dalila Bela (Diana Barry), Aymeric Jett Montaz (Jerry Baynard), and Lucas Jade Zumann (Gilbert Blythe).
According to Deadline, Lucas has joined the YA romantic drama ‘Every Day’ as Nathan.
Maria Bello, Jessie star Debby Ryan and Jacob Batalon, who can currently be seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming, have come aboard MGM/Likely Story/FilmWave’s upcoming YA romantic drama Every Day. The Get Down’s Justice Smith and Lucas Jade Zumann (20th Century Women) round out the cast as production is underway in Toronto with Michael Sucsy at the helm.
The pic stars previously announced Angourie Rice as 16-year-old Rhiannon, who falls in love with a spirit named A, a traveling soul who wakes each morning in a different body, living a different life every day. Jesse Andrews adapted the screenplay based on David Levithan’s best-selling novel of the same name.
Zumann, who plays Nathan in the film, can currently be seen in Netflix’s Anne With An E and is repped by UTA. Batalon, who’s set for the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming and is repped by Paradigm, will play James, an intimidating teen.
There’s a new interview out for Anthem Magazine along with two new images which you can check out in the gallery. There’s a little bit about what he’s up to next as well that might be interesting.
Now I’m wondering what kind of stories you’re interested in telling on the other side of the camera since you mentioned wanting to make films as well. Do you write screenplays?
Actually, I’m currently working on a feature length film. My friends and I are prepping to shoot this summer. It’s no budget, favors and friends, and as much camera equipment as we can find. I’m really attracted to character-driven stuff, even if that means sacrificing the traditional arc of a story or a movie. Even if it’s very dull and straightforward, as long as it’s true to people and relatable, that’s the kind of stuff I’m really into. I find that my writing tends to be that way. I’m not even done writing the script yet and what I did write is 40 or 50 minutes of just dialogue between people. One of my friends were like, “Listen—something needs to actually happen.” [Laughs] So we’re creating an actual story that goes along with it.
Lucas attended a UNICEF Kid Power Event in Chicago yesterday and you can see a few images from that in the gallery.
