We love Maia Mitchell and can’t wait to see her expand more beyond The Fosters and Disney Channel movies. That’s part of the reason we’re so excited that she’s been cast in a movie opposite KJ Apa.
As we learned last night, KJ is currently in Atlanta to film The Hate U Give. But after that wraps, he will be moving on to The Last Summer from Gulfstream Pictures. Maia has been cast opposite Apa as his love interest.
The Last Summer follows a group of students in Chicago as they celebrate their last summer before heading off to college. Maia plays a filmmaker, named Pheobe, who is shooting a documentary with her friends.
It had previously been reported that The Last Summer was to start principal photography April 23rd. We’re not sure if that’s still going to happen with Apa shooting The Hate U Give, bu we’re interested to find out.
Excited for Mitchell to join the film!
