Riverdale star KJ Apa and Sofia Carson from Disney’s Descendants will join the Michael Bay's pandemic thriller “Songbird,” with previously announced cast members Demi Moore, Bradley Whitford, Craig Robinson, Jenna Ortega, Paul Walter Hauser and Peter Stormare.
The movie is directed by Adam Mason, who also wrote the script with Simon Boyes. Adam Goodman and former Disney exec Andrew Sugerman’s Invisible Narratives, with Catchlight Films and Michael Bay are producing.
“Songbird” takes place two years into the future, as a lockdown has been re-implemented after a more serious virus continues to mutate. In a feeble attempt to keep the sickness contained, the city has been bisected into haves and have nots. “Songbird” follows an essential worker (Apa) who has a rare immunity, a delivery man who delivers goods and hope throughout the city. Like the vast majority of the population, his girlfriend (Carson) is locked within her home, and the couple have no ability to physically be together. To be with the one he loves, he must overcome martial law, murderous vigilantes and a powerful, well connected family, helmed by a matriarch (Demi Moore) who will stop at nothing to protect her family and maintain her way of life.
Apa is best known for starring in “Riverdale.” He recently appeared in Lionsgate’s “I Still Believe,” which marked his first leading role in a studio movie. Carson currently stars in the Netflix feature film “Feel the Beat.”
