Manusco told the publication that he is looking forward to working with Camila Mendes on the project: "I'm beyond thrilled to have Camila's wildly gifted intellect join this special journey of Musica, where we're telling an authentic Brazilian-American story through the eyes of a synesthete."

Mendes is scheduled to star in a new film Do Revenge alongside Maya Hawke from Stranger Things and Sophie Turner from Game of Thrones.
