Riverdale‘s own KJ Apa, along with Descendants star Sofia Carson, will be joining Songbird, a pandemic thriller that also stars Demi Moore, Bradley Whitford, Craig Robinson, Jenna Ortega, Paul Walter Hauser and Peter Stormare. Adam Mason serves as director, also writing the script with Simon Boyes. Former Paramount production chief Adam Goodman and former Disney executive Andrew Sugerman’s Invisible Narratives are producers, as well as Catchlight Films and Michael Bay.

According to VarietySongbird 

takes place two years in the future, as a lockdown (to prevent the spread of coronavirus) is re-implemented after a more serious virus continues to mutate. The movie centers around an essential worker, played by Apa, who has a rare immunity and is therefore able to work as a delivery man. Carson portrays his girlfriend, who’s sheltering at home. To be with the one he loves, he must overcome martial law, murderous vigilantes and a powerful family, headed by Moore’s character.

With principal photography beginning in Los Angeles on July 8, Songbird officially became the first film to shoot in the city since lockdown started.
