EXCLUSIVE: Actor and musician Tyson Ritter has landed three back-to-back upcoming projects. The All-American Rejects frontman is set to co-star alongside Jennifer Garner in the Lakeshore Entertainment/STXfilms’ thriller Peppermint, which follows Riley North (Garner), whose life was destroyed when gunmen, working for a drug dealer, kill her family and she spends the next five years training to return to Los Angeles to retaliate. Ritter will play Sam, a homeless man who joins Riley on her journey. Pierre Morel is directing pic from a screenplay by Chad St. John.
In addition, he will join Julianne Moore in Sebastian Lelio’s American adaption of his 2013 Chilean-Spanish drama, Gloria. From producers Pablo Larrain and Juan de Dios Larrain, the film centers on a divorcee in her 50s with two grown children, seeking companionship and rediscovering her strength and love for life.
