Alfre Woodard and Talitha Bateman will star in the road-trip drama, an adaptation of Sarah Weeks' young adult novel. The cast includes John Heard, Cloris Leachman, Jacinda Barrett and Dash Mihok.
Stephen Gyllenhaal is directing from a script by Garry Williams, which chronicles the journey of a 12-year-old girl (Bateman) who decides to take a solo cross-country trip and leave the safety of her home life with her mentally challenged mother (Collins) and agoraphobic neighbor, portrayed by Woodard.
Production begins July 13 in Los Angeles.
