‘Lizzie McGuire’s’ Hallie Todd Starring in Sports Drama ‘The Last Champion’

Hallie Todd has been cast in the family sports drama “The Last Champion,” currently in pre-production at In House Media Film Partners.

Todd is best known for her role as Jo McGuire on Disney Channel’s “Lizzie McGuire” and “The Lizzie McGuire Movie.” She’s starring in Universal’s “American Girl: Lea to the Rescue.”

Todd will executive produce and perform in “The Last Champion,” a coming-of-age story. Her husband, Glenn Withrow, is set to direct the project from a script he wrote with Todd along with their daughter, Ivy Withrow, who also serves as VP of development for the company.

In House Media Film Partners was born when Todd and Withrow were inspired to create a family production company after Withrow’s experiences working with Francis Coppola on five films, starting with “The Outsiders.”

“As a team of filmmakers, we wanted to write something that other families could watch and enjoy together, the type of family-night movie that has become harder to find in recent years,” Todd said.

The film is scheduled to start shooting in November in Washington State.
