Maika Monroe joins LABOR DAY

It’s about damn time for this to get up and moving.

With starring roles in films like THE BLING RING and opposite Zac Efron in a yet-to-be-titled film from Ramin Bahrani, actress Maika Monroe may have just found her biggest role yet, thanks to one Jason Reitman.

Variety reports that Monroe is set to star in the upcoming film LABOR DAY, Reitman’s long-gestating adaptation of the Joyce Maynard novel of the same name.  Already starring Josh Brolin, Kate Winslet and Tom Lipinski, Monroe will play Brolin’s love interest during his early days before heading off to Vietnam, and later his wife.

The film has been floating on Reitman’s slate for years and has been something of a passion project for the director.  Personally, I think the cast and crew on this sound absolutely top-notch and while I haven’t been too fond of Reitman’s canon, I do have huge hopes for this project.
