The pic set in current day Los Angeles follows Daphne (Woodley), a thirtysomething woman navigating love and heartbreak over the course of one year. During that time, she will unlock the secrets to her life in a sudden turn of events and in the most surprising of places. Sloane will play Billie, the foil sister to Woodley’s free spirit character. Billie is the financial shoulder for Daphne to lean on, and is married with a baby on the way. Also starring in Doremus’ latest is 50 Shades of Grey and A Private War star Jamie Dornan, Captain America‘s Sebastian Stan and Criminal Minds veteran Matthew Gray Gubler.
Sloane, whose film credits include the Horrible Bosses franchise, The Other Guys and Bring It On, is repped by Gersh and Haven Entertainment.
