John Schultz directed the summer release, based on Megan McDonald’s childrens’ book. Australian actress Jordana Beatty stars in the title role alongside Heather Graham.
Smokewood’s Sarah Siegel-Magness and Gary Magness produced and Bobbi Sue Luther and Andrew Sugerman served as executive producers. CAA brokered the deal with Relativity on behalf of Smokewood.
