Haley Lu Richardson On A Roll With “White Lotus” And “Montana Story”

On a break from shooting the second season of the critically acclaimed HBO series The White Lotus in Italy, rising star Haley Lu Richardson is at a seaside hotel overlooking a harbor filled with small, colorful boats bobbing along on the waves.

Phoenix-native Richardson, best known for her guest-starring role as queen bee Tess on the supernatural teen drama series Ravenswood and more recently the indie female buddy dramedy Unpregnant, now stars as a young woman overcoming trauma and finding forgiveness in the drama Montana Story.

As Erin, she returns to her estranged father’s Montana ranch as he lies in a coma following a stroke. There, she uncomfortably reunites with her younger half-brother, Cal (Owen Teague) whom she also hasn’t seen in seven years after she ran away from home as a teenager.

Haley Lu Richardson: “I’ve retired from playing teenagers”

The 27-year-old star of Edge of Seventeen, Columbus and Unpregnant is growing up with indie Montana Story and a role in the next season of The White Lotus

In the last half decade, Haley Lu Richardson has amassed an impressive variety of roles, from slapstick comedies and indie dramas, united in their striking naturalism.

As the popular best friend to Hailee Steinfeld’s misanthrope in teen comedy Edge of Seventeen, a star-crossed lover with cystic fibrosis in Five Feet Apart and an architecture nerd who befriends a grieving older man in Kogonada’s critically acclaimed Columbus, the 27-year-old American actor’s warmth consistently elevates what could be flat or derivative characters into full-blooded people. She is remarkably good at the more casual, throwaway aspects of life that often translate poorly to screen – Googling Planned Parenthood in Unpregnant, shooting a glance in the memories of a techno-sapien robot in After Yang or, in the case of her new film Montana Story, calling an Uber to her father’s ranch in Big Sky country.

Netflix Nabs YA Romancer ‘The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight’

The streaming giant acquired world rights to the feature from the producers of ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.’

Netflix has picked up the global rights to YA romance film The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight.

The feature is from ACE Entertainment, the producers of the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise. Haley Lu Richardson, Ben Hardy, Jameela Jamil, Rob Delaney, Dexter Fletcher and Sally Phillips will star in the romancer, with Vanessa Caswill directing a script by Katie Lovejoy.

Lovejoy (To All the Boys: Always and Forever) penned the screenplay based on the novel of the same name by Jennifer E. Smith. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight sees strangers Hadley and Oliver begin to fall for each other on their flight from New York to London, only to face misfortune or fate as they separate on landing.

The probability of ever finding each other again seems impossible, but love — and London — may have a way of defying the odds. The latest franchise pic continues a partnership between Netflix and ACE, who produced the streamer’s upcoming YA feature Hello, Goodbye and Everything In Between, as well all three films in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise.

Matt Kaplan is producing the feature through his ACE Entertainment shingle, with Max Siemers, Matthew Janzen and Aubrey Bendix overseeing the project.
