The Foster’s Maia Mitchell has joined the cast of The Last Summer alongside Riverdale’s KJ Apa as his love interest.
The Last Summer follows a group of high school grads living in Chicago the summer before they go to college. Mitchell will be playing a character named Phoebe who is “a budding filmmaker in the midst of shooting a documentary about her peers.” The romantic comedy will be directed by Bill Bindley who co-wrote it with Scott Bindley. It will start principal photography later this month.
Mitchell is coming off of five seasons of The Foster’s, which will air a three-part finale later this summer, and will then star in the spinoff with Fosters co-star Cierra Ramirez.
Are you excited to see the two teen drama small screen stars team up on the big screen?
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
