The actress had been linked to “Kodachrome” before the Cannes Film Festival, but producers had not confirmed her involvement with the project until Friday. Shooting is starting this week in Toronto.
Mark Raso (“Copenhagen”) is directing from a script by Jonathan Tropper. The film is based on A.G. Sulzberger’s 2010 New York Times article “For Kodachrome Fans, Road Ends at Photo Lab in Kansas” about a father and son who take a road trip to Kansas in order to develop photographs at Kodak’s last Kodachrome lab before it closes its doors for good.
Producers are Tropper; Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson; 21 Laps Entertainment’s Dan Levine and Shawn Levy; and Leon Clarance of Motion Picture Capital, which is fully financing. Jo Monk and Dan Cohen are executive producing.
Harris and Sudeikis joined the movie just before sales launched at Cannes. Wendy Crewson, Bruce Greenwood and Dennis Haysbert are also in the cast.
Olsen starred in “Godzilla,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and “Captain America: Civil War.” She’s repped by Gersh and Brillstein Management.
