EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has added a bevy of actors to the Michael Scott-directed original feature thriller Windfall including Jessie T. Usher (Independence Day: Resurgence, Shaft), Jamie Chung (The Gifted, Big Hero 6), Cam Gigandet (Ice, Twilight, The Magnificent Seven) with Sasha Alexander (Shameless, Bernard and Huey) and Oscar nominee Elliott Gould (Ocean’s Eight, Ray Donovan).
All of them join previously announced Riverdale actress Camila Mendes in the David Golden scripted project. In Windfall, when a wealthy elderly man dies and unexpectedly leaves his estate to his new caregiver, she’s drawn into a web of deception and murder. If she’s going to survive, she’ll have to question everyone’s motives — even the people she loves.
Margret H. Huddleston and Stephanie Slack are producing with Golden co-producing. EPs are Harvey Kahn and Michael Scott.
Gigandet is repped by ICM Partners and Luber Roklin Entertainment. Usher is repped by CAA. Chung is represented by Gersh, 3 Arts and Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Krintzman Rubenstein Kohner & Gellman. Alexander is with Gersh, Circle of Confusion and Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson. Gould, who was nominated for a 1970 supporting actor Oscar for Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, is repped by APA and Forefront Partners..
