KJ Apa (Riverdale) and Sofia Carson (Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists) will star in the pandemic thriller Songbird, joining previously announced cast members Demi Moore, Bradley Whitford, Craig Robinson, Jenna Ortega, Paul Walter Hauser and Peter Stormare.

Songbird producers announced on July 8 that they had launched principal photography in Los Angeles – the first film to shoot in the city since the start of coronavirus-induced lockdown.

SAG-AFTRA issued a "do not work" order on the production on July 2, but rescinded it the next day.

The movie is directed by Adam Mason, who also wrote the script with Simon Boyes.

Songbird takes place two years in the future, as a lockdown (to prevent the spread of coronavirus) is re-implemented after a more serious virus continues to mutate.

The movie centers around an essential worker, played by Apa, who has a rare immunity and is therefore able to work as a deliveryman. Carson portrays his girlfriend, who's sheltering at home.

To be with the one he loves, he must overcome martial law, murderous vigilantes and a powerful family, headed by Moore's character. – Reuters
