EXCLUSIVE: Rising star Mckenna Grace, who was last seen as the young Tonya Harding in the Oscar-nominated film I, Tonya, has landed a lead role opposite Viola Davis in the Amazon Studios film Troupe Zero. Bert & Bertie are directing the pic from a script by Lucy Alibar.
No plot details have been released. Todd Black, who produced Fences, the film which earned Davis the Best Supporting Actress Oscar, is producing Troupe Zero for Amazon.
Grace is perhaps one of the busiest young actors in the biz with a long list of credits that includes Fox Searchlight’s Gifted, Amityville: The Awakening as well as ABC’s Designated Survivor and Netflix’s Fuller House. She just completed production on The Haunting of Hill House, also for Netflix, and was recently announced as part of the cast of Disney/Marvel’s highly anticipated Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson.
Grace is repped by Paradigm, Management 360 and attorney Stewart Brookman.
