Elizabeth Olsen is set to star in Kodachrome, appearing alongside Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis in the upcoming drama.

The actress had been previously linked to the project before Cannes, where The Solution Entertainment Group launched it in the market (CAA are repping North America), but her name was subsequently removed.

Set to start shooting in Toronto on Aug. 28, Kodachrome tells the story of a record label boss who embarks on a road trip across the U.S. in order to fulfill his father’s dying wish and have a roll of Kodachrome film developed, only to find there’s just one remaining shop accepting them. Bruce Greenwood, Dennis Haysbert and Wendy Crewson will also star in the film, to be directed by Mark Raso (Copenhagen) from a script by Jonathan Tropper. Tropper previously adapted his novel This is Where I Leave You with Warner Brothers, which starred Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Corey Stoll and Rose Byrne.

Kodachrome is being produced by Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson and 21 Laps Entertainment’s Dan Levine and Shawn Levy, alongside Topper and Leon Clarance of Motion Picture Capital, which is fully financing the film. Jo Monk and Dan Cohen are executive producing.

The film joins a growing list of films on the slate of Motion Picture Capital, which only this week announced Steel Country, a U.S.-set thriller to star Andrew Scott (Spectre, Pride) and recent Olivier best actress winner Denise Gough (’71, Jimmy’s Hall) which went into production Friday. Simon Fellowes (Malice in Wonderland) directs, while Gareth Ellis-Unwin (The King’s Speech) produces alongside Clarance.
