Lucas Hedges, Alexie Gilmore and Micah Fowler have joined the dramedy "Labor Day" says THR.
Based on author Joyce Maynard's book--the action is set on a late summer Labor Day holiday weekend in the 1980s, the story follows a divorced, depressed single mom Adele (Kate Winslet) out shopping with her 13-year-old son Henry (Gattlin Griffith) when they encounter a large, fearsome and bleeding man named Frank (Josh Brolin). He asks for a ride and against their better judgment they agree, later learning the police are searching their town for an escaped convict.
Gilmore plays Marjorie, who is Henry's stepmother; Hedges plays Richard,
Marjorie's son; and Fowler plays Barry, the son of Adele's friend Evelyn.
James Van Der Beek will play a police officer investigating a missing person’s case. Brighid Fleming plays the object of Griffith's affection and a girl with much more awareness of the way the world works than he has.
Clark Gregg, Tom Lipinski and Maika Monroe also star.
Jason Reitman will direct using his adapted script, and will co-produce the film with Helen Estabrook Lianne Halfon and Russell Smith.
Production began on June 5th.
