“Storm Reid is one of the most talented young actors of this generation. We are thrilled to have her join the cast of One Way alongside an all-star cast with a huge international appeal,” Highland Film Group CEO Arianne Fraser said in an interview with the popular media outlet.
Baird continued, “I was looking for a young actress with the same power and talent as Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver. When my producing partner Martin Brennan showed me Storm, I knew right away we found her. To round out the cast with such great and seasoned talents as Drea, Meagan, Luis and Rhys and the rest of them; I feel extremely lucky. I take great care in casting and this truly is and exceptional ensemble.”
Per Deadline, the plot of the film is pretty interesting. In the upcoming movie, Freddy, (Colson Baker), goes on the run with a bag full of cash after a robbery of his former crime boss goes wrong. With a potentially fatal wound, he slips onto a bus headed into the unrelenting California desert. After a call for help, Freddy’s estranged father, (Kevin Bacon), betrays him, notifying the crime boss where he is. With his life slipping through his fingers, Freddy is left with very few choices to survive.
Also starring in the film are Casie Baker, Drea de Matteo, Meagan Holder, Thomas Francis Murphy, Luis Da Silva Jr., Rhys Coiro, Danny Bohnen and Scotty Bohnen. Andrew Baird will direct from a script by Ben Conway.
Storm Reid got her start in the industry with her role in the box office Disney hit, A Wrinkle in Time. The talented teen also has starred in Don’t Leg Go, The Invisible Man, and will be seen next in the upcoming Warner Bros. The Suicide Squad.
