Thomas Dekker, Juliette Lewis And More To Take A Trip In Foreverland
Since starting off his career as a sick kid fighting over some Yankee autographs with Michael Richards on an episode of Seinfeld, Thomas Dekker's career has slowly moving forward. Starting with roles on shows like Heroes and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, he's now started making his way into films, appearing in the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake and having a part in the Sundance film Kaboom - and he's not done yet.
THR reports that Dekker, Juliette Lewis, Laurence Laboeuf and Max Thieriot have all been cast in Maxwell McGuire's Foreverland. In the film, Thieriot plays a young man named Will Rankin who suffers from cystic fibrosis. After the death of his friend's sister, they decide to take a road trip down to Mexico to visit a healing shrine. Already in production, the film is shooting in British Columbia and Mexico through next month.
While the film's genre isn't explicitly said in the article, is it weird that whenever I hear the suffix -land on a movie title (a la Zombieland, Adventureland, et al.) I expect it to be a comedy? Road movies are typically fun affairs, but the fact that there is death and a debilitating disease also at play, I have my doubts that this is going to be a laugh-out-loud riot.
