Netflix has confirmed the cast for “Windfall” from director Michael Scott. Leading with Camila Mendes, the film also stars Jessie T. Usher (Independence Day: Resurgence, Shaft), Jamie Chung (The Gifted, Big Hero 6), and Cam Gigandet (Ice, Twilight, The Magnificent Seven). Netflix also confirmed that Sasha Alexander (Shameless, Bernard and Huey) and Elliott Gould (Ocean’s Eight, Ray Donovan) will be featured in the upcoming thriller.
Produced by Margret H. Huddleston and Stephanie Slack, Netflix describes the story adding, “When a wealthy elderly man dies and unexpectedly leaves his estate to his new caregiver, she’s drawn into a web of deception and murder. If she’s going to survive, she’ll have to question everyone’s motives — even the people she loves.”
Harvey Kahn and Michael Scott serve as executive producers on the project, with David Golden serving as a co-producer.
Netflix made the castings official today, but we don’t have a premiere date for the film at this time. Usher is also working on George Nolfi’s drama “The Banker” with Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, and Nicholas Hoult, and Jamie Chung is voicing Go Go on the hit animated show “Big Hero Six: The Series,” as well as playing the role of Violet on Hulu’s “The Misfits.”
As we mentioned earlier, all of these stars are joining Camila Mendes in the project, who currently stars as Veronica Lodge on CW’s hit YA drama “Riverdale.” Mendes is also featured in Sara Seligman’s thriller “Coyote Lake” with Charlie Weber and Adriana Barraza, and Max Barbakow’s upcoming comedy “Palm Springs” with Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti.
Fans of the cast will have to wait a little longer to get the premiere date for the new Netflix project, which will probably be released with a teaser trailer over the next few months.
