Haley Lu Richardson joins the cast of “After Yang”

Golshifteh Farahani (Paterson), Justin Min (The Umbrella Academy), Sarita Choudhury (Homeland) and Haley Lu Richardson are set to join Colin Farrell in A24’s robot drama After Yang from writer-director Kogonada, Collider has exclusively learned

After Yang is based on Alexander Weinstein‘s short story Saying Goodbye to Yang, which was set in a world where robotic children are purchased as live-in babysitters. The story followed a father and daughter as they try to save the life of their robotic family member, Yang, who was programmed to help his little sister learn about her cultural heritage.

The film will follow a couple, played by Farrell and Farahani, who adopt a young Chinese girl as well as an A.I. sibling named Yang (Min). When Yang suddenly becomes unresponsive, the family goes to great lengths to repair him. Choudhury will co-star as a museum director who takes great interest in Yang, while Richardson will play another A.I. who strikes up a relationship with Yang.

Theresa Park will produce under her Per Capita Productions banner along with Cinereach (We the Animals). They teamed to acquire the short story last summer and tapped Kogonada, hot off Columbus, to write the script.

Farahani recently starred opposite Adam Driver in Jim Jarmusch‘s drama Paterson, and she’ll soon be seen alongside Chris Hemsworth in the action-thriller Dhaka. She has worked with Ridley Scott twice, on Body of Lies and Exodus: Gods and Kings, and she also appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. She’s repped by CAA, which did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Best known for playing Ben Hargreeves on Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, Min also has a role in Nicolas Winding Refn‘s upcoming Amazon series Too Old to Die Young. He’s repped by The Kohner Agency, Authentic Talent and Literary Management.

Choudhury recently starred opposite Tom Hanks in Tom Tykwer‘s A Hologram for the King and appeared in both Mockingjay movies in the Hunger Games franchise. In addition to M. Night Shyamalan‘s Lady in the Water, she also starred on Hulu’s The Path and Showtime’s Homeland. Choudhury is repped by Buchwald and Washington Square Films.

Kogonada is the South Korea-born writer-director who made his feature directorial debut with the 2017 romantic drama Columbus starring John Cho and Richardson, whose credits also include Split and The Edge of Seventeen. She currently stars opposite Cole Sprouse in Five Feet Apart. Richardson is repped by the Gersh Agency and 3 Arts Entertainment.

Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson Give First Details About New Movie “Five Feet Apart”

Cole Sprouse is no stranger to star-crossed relationships onscreen — after all, Northsider Betty Cooper and Southside Serpent Jughead Jones didn’t exactly have an easy go of it when they first started dating on Riverdale. Soon, however, he’ll portray another character in a rule-breaking relationship when he and Haley Lu Richardson play two teens with cystic fibrosis who fall in love in the upcoming film Five Feet Apart.

Teen Vogue has an exclusive new image of Cole and Haley as their characters Will and Stella, who must maintain a distance of five feet in order to prevent cross-infection. In the photo, Will and Haley are seen flirting poolside, while yes, remaining feet from each other. Over the course of the movie, the two realize their affection for each other can transcend physical touch, according to the synopsis.

Cole told Teen Vogue that he felt a responsibility to ensure his character reflected true experiences of living with CF. “There are some roles that carry a real responsibility for accurate representation, this was one of them,” he said. “Some say the currency of poetry is the acceptance of other poets, and I desire no audience more greatly than those who resonate with the challenges shown by the characters of this film. It’s my hope that we did them justice. This was all for you guys.”

Director Justin Baldoni, who also directed Jane the Virgin, first had the idea for the movie after talking with a friend with CF about dating while having the disease, and the complications that can bring into a relationship. “I have always wanted to find a way to show young people in particular, that love is so much more than what we often see being celebrated and exploited in the world around us,” he told Teen Vogue. “So we set out to ask the question: What if the most intimate relationship of your life, was with someone you couldn’t be physically intimate with? Could love transcend human touch during the most vulnerable time of our life?”
Haley, who costarred alongside Hailee Steinfeld in The Edge of Seventeen, explained that the experience of making the movie affected the way she thought about her own life.
“One of my favorite lines in the movie is, ‘I’ve been living for my treatments instead of doing my treatments so I can live,'” she said. “I think those words are the heart of Stella and Will’s story and I’ll hold on to them forever as a reminder that the point of life is for it to be lived.”

Justin also revealed that he knew almost immediately that Cole and Haley were the perfect choices to play Will and Stella. “[Haley] gave Stella a vulnerable strength and depth that blew away my wildest hopes for what the character could be,” he said. “Haley has a humanity and sincerity that lights up the screen and I think that so many people will see themselves in her portrayal.”

As for Cole? “I only took one meeting — and that was with Cole,” Justin said. “He’s intimidatingly intelligent and super creative but can strike up a conversation with anyone about anything and put them at ease. His character is an artist and I loved the parallel to Cole who is also an extraordinary photographer. This is Cole Sprouse like you have never seen him before.”

The movie is in theaters on March 22, 2019.

“Columbus” UK Release Date + Total Film Scan

Great News! Columbus, film directed by Kogonada and starring John Cho & Haley Lu Richardson will be released in the UK on October 5, 2018! 1 scan from the magazine TOTAL FILM (September Issue) has been added to the gallery and you can read the transcript of the interview below:

How did you get the part?
I got a script and an offer. It was a big deal. I was like, “Why are they offering it to me? How do they know about me?” I just loved the story and thought, “Whoever wrote this is a genius.” The simplicity and the subtlety was in the script. It was so ordinary and so magical at the same time.

Did you know about architecture before the film?
No, but my dad is a golf-course architect and my mom’s a graphic designer, so my parents ingrained in my head, subconsciously, the value of presentation.

Is Casey basically you? It’s such a natural performance…
I’m 23 and not the wisest in how to act, so every character I’ve played I’ve had to find how I relate, or else I’m putting on a shtick. In Columbus, It was the relationship with her mom. I mean, my mom is not a former drug addict but I’ve always felt this best friendship with her. But Casey isn’t me – I’m a very loud person and a move-my-hands-when-i-talk kinda gal, so it really excited me to do a movie and a character with a tone that’s so still.
