#FIRSTLOOK: “FLOAT” BEGINS PRODUCTION IN VANCOUVER
Collective Pictures, Wattpad WEBTOON Studios, and Brightlight Pictures team together with Lionsgate on an upcoming adaptation of FLOAT, based on Kate Marchant’s hit Wattpad romance of the same name. The Film will star Robbie Amell and Andrea Bang, with filming having begun this week in Vancouver.
The exciting and diverse ensemble cast includes Andrew Bachelor (Greenland, Vacation Friends), Rukiya Bernard (Van Helsing, Nancy Drew), Michelle Krusiec (Hollywood, Hawaii Five-O), Sarah Desjardins (Riverdale, Van Helsing), Ghazal Azarbad (Kim’s Convenience, Charmed), and Tristan Arthurs (Kung Fu).
In a spontaneous act of defiance, pre-med bound Waverly (Bang) makes a summer detour to a sunny beach town, where she finds herself dragged into the riptide of a stubborn but charming local named Blake (Amell). Things heat up when Blake learns Waverly can’t swim and offers to teach her. Surprisingly, the two seemingly opposites start to fall in love and Waverly has to decide between her pre-planned future or following her heart.
More details to come!
