Deadline is exclusively reporting that Camila Mendes is the latest name to join the cast of STXfilms comedy-drama American Sole.
Set in the world of after-market sneakers, one of the fastest-growing areas of in-demand streetwear, the film focuses on two twenty-somethings with mountains of college debt who use the fast cash of after-market sneaker reselling to achieve their American dream. But when their startup runs out of cash and a shady investor is their only way out, the dream quickly becomes a nightmare.
Camila Mendes (whose credits include Riverdale and Palm Springs) will be playing the role of Jess, the girlfriend of Pete Davidson’s character in the film.
The film is being written and directed by Ian Edelman. Stadium Goods, the world’s premier sneaker and streetwear marketplace, will serve as consulting producer on the project. John McPheters will serve as executive producer, on behalf of Stadium Goods, alongside HartBeat’s Bryan Smiley. Drew Simon and Patricia Braga will oversee the project for STXfilms.
