Evan Rachel Wood is heading to Bytown this month! The filming of ‘Adulthood,’ also known as ‘The Adults,’ is set to begin in Ottawa, Ontario, on May 20 and conclude by June 20. As disclosed earlier, Wood will star alongside Josh Gad and Anthony Carrigan in this murder mystery film by Alex Winter.

In the movie, written by Michael M.B. Galvin, Wood and Gad will portray Megan and Nathan, siblings grappling to survive in contemporary America. Their lives take a drastic turn when they stumble upon a long-buried corpse hidden in their parents’ basement, propelling them into a dark journey of crime and homicide.

Winter most recently appeared as Vlad in the horror comedy ‘Destroy All Neighbors,’ in which a struggling prog-rock musician is thrust into a nightmarish scenario after accidentally killing his neighbor from hell. As a director, he helmed the documentary ‘The YouTube Effect,’ offering a revealing exploration of the impact and evolution of YouTube in shaping our perceptions and experiences. The filmmaker also directed the acclaimed documentary ‘Zappa,’ which delves deep into the life and artistic legacy of the iconic musician Frank Zappa. His other directorial endeavors include ‘Showbiz Kids’ and ‘The Panama Papers.’

Wood portrayed Eileen McNamara in ‘Backspot,’ which follows Riley’s journey as she joins the Thunderhawks all-star cheer squad, navigating her anxiety, relationship dynamics, and the pressure to impress her new coach ahead of an impending competition. The actress portrayed Madonna in ‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story,’ a biopic delving into Yankovic’s rise to fame and his colorful personal life. Wood’s credits include acclaimed shows like HBO’s ‘Westworld‘ and films like ‘Viena and the Fantomes.’

Gad’s most recent performance was in the Peacock series ‘Wolf Like Me,’ in which he stars as Gary alongside Isla Fisher. The series follows Gary, an emotionally shattered man struggling to support his daughter after his wife’s passing, and Mary, who harbors a secret she’s unable to disclose. In the sci-fi comedy show ‘Avenue 5,’ which is about a space cruise ship, the actor played Herman Judd.

Carrigan recently appeared in Bill Hader’s ‘Barry’ as NoHo Hank. He starred as Squire Naljaimon in ‘Killer Whales,’ a feature film about a filmmaker facing unexpected challenges while making a true crime documentary. His other recent credits include ‘Captain Fall’ and ‘Fatherhood.’

Winter has commented on the project, stating, “I’m thrilled to be working with Evan, Josh, and Anthony on this darkly comic crime drama, which takes a candid look at the challenges we all face today, trying to survive in the modern world.”
