Alexie Gilmore, Lucas Hedges and Brooke Smith have rounded out the cast of Jason Reitman’s “Labor Day,” which has started principal photography.

Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin star in the pic, based on the adaptation of Joyce Maynard’s novel. The pic is being backed by Indian Paintbrush and Paramount.

Reitman is writing and directing the film, which follows Frank Chambers (Brolin), an escaped convict who seeks shelter with a depressed single mom (Kate Winslet) and her teen son over Labor Day weekend.

Reitman and his Right of Way Films partner Helen Estabrook are producing with Lianne Halfon and Russell Smith of Mr. Mudd.
