After years in development, things seem to be moving forward on Jason Reitman's adaptation of Joyce Maynard's coming-of-age novel "Labor Day," with professional kiteboarder-turned-actor Maika Monroe the latest addition to its ever-growing cast.

Monroe joins Josh Brolin, Kate Winslet and Tom Lipinski in the story of an escaped convict who seeks shelter with a depressed single mom and her teen son over a Labor Day weekend. Monroe will appear in flashback sequences with Lipinski (who plays the young version of Brolin's convict and bears a frightening resemblance to him) as Mandy, a farm girl romanced by Brolin/Lipinski before he left for Vietnam, who will later become his wife and the mother of his child.

The actress is currently shooting Sofia Coppola's 'Bling Ring' and recently featured as Zac Efron's love interest in Ramin Bahrani's untitled drama. Coppola and Reitman; not a bad duo to kick off your acting career. Lensing on Reitman's pic is slated to begin this summer. [Variety]
