Laura Chinns feature directorial debut Suncoast, which she also directed, is set to star Woody Harrelson, Laura Linney, and Nico Parker, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Searchlight Pictures has boarded the drama that made the 2020 Black List and is scheduled to begin production in September.
Among protests surrounding controversial medical cases, Parker will play the youngster, Linney will play her mother, and Harrelson will play the activist.
Chinn, an actor turned screenwriter, is perhaps best known for the popular television comedy Florida Girls, which follows a group of four women who navigate their lives while living in a trailer park. Despite a great reception, season 2 of the series was canceled along with several other Pop originals in 2020. The film is going to be a power-packed thriller, given the Florida Girls' popularity among fans and critics.
Harrelson, a three-time Oscar nominee, most recently starred in Triangle of Sadness, which received its worldwide premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, as well as a film adaptation of The Man From Toronto opposite Kevin Hart. Linney was last seen in Netflixs hit crime drama Ozark alongside Jason Bateman and has won four Emmy nominations, two for Searchlights The Savages and Kinsey and another for Kenneth Lonergans You Can Count on Me.
Parker made her debut with Dumbo alongside Micheal Keaton and Colin Farrell. She was recently seen in HBO Maxs Reminiscence and will be next seen in the streamer's next series based on the video game phenomenon, The Last of Us, alongside Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal.
The feature will be produced by Jeremy Plager, Francesca Silvestri, Kevin Chinoy, and Oly Obst. For Searchlight, Taylor Friedman, the project will be led by senior VP, production, and creative director Daniel Yu.
