Thorne portrays a 17-year-old with a life-threatening sensitivity to sunlight who’s housebound during the day with only her father, played by Rob Riggle, for company. The world opens up after she ventures out to the local train station to play her guitar — and meets an ex-high school all-star athlete, whom she has secretly admired for years.
The film is currently shooting with Scott Speer directing from a screenplay by Eric Kirsten. Producers are John Rickard, Zack Schiller and Jen Gatien; David Boies, James McGough, Alan Ou, Hiroki Shirota and Speer are executive producing.
Thorne starred in “The Duff” and “Blended” and appeared in season one of MTV’s “Scream.” She recently joined New Line’s horror-comedy “The Babysitter.”
Schwarzenegger’s credits include “Grown Ups 2,” “Stuck in Love” and “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.”
