The Young and the Restless star Jessica Collins, who will soon be leaving the soap and the role of Avery Clark, already has her next gig lined up. According to Variety, she has landed a role in the upcoming film So B. It.

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.
