Emmy and Golden Globes winner Henry Winkler and Rosa Salazar (Fox’s Alita: Battle Angel) have come aboard Stampede’s Pink Skies Ahead, along with Lewis Pullman (Bad Times At The El Royale, Battle Of The Sexes) and Devon Bostick (I Am The Night, Okja). They join star Jessica Barden in the drama written by Kelly Oxford, who will make her feature directing debut.
Slated to begin filming this June in Los Angeles, the pic tells the story of a young woman who discovers she has an anxiety disorder after dropping out of school and moving back home.
Winkler, who recently picked up an Emmy award for his performance in the HBO series Barry, will take on the role of Dr. Cotton, Winona’s (Barden) friendly doctor – who used to be her pediatrician – who she visits when she discovers something alarming.

Stampede’s Greg Silverman and Lisa Zambri are producing with Divide/Conquer’s Greg Gilreath and Adam Hendricks. Executive producers are Gideon Yu and Chris Bosco from Stampede as well as Zac Locke.
Winkler is repped by CAA and Management 360; Salazar by Paradigm Talent Agency and Vanderkloot Law; Pullman by ICM and Anonymous Content; Bostick by Innovative Artists, Noble Caplan Abrams, and Principal Entertainment LA.
