LOS ANGELES, April 4 — The star of The Fifth Element and Resident Evil, Milla Jovovich, and Game of Thrones and John Wick actor Alfie Allen are among those joining Emma Roberts in fantastical boarding school tale Paradise Hills.
Jovovich (The Fifth Element), Allen (John Wick), Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), and Awkwafina (Neighbours 2, Ocean’s Eight) are joining the cast of Paradise Hills, the first feature film from Spanish director Alice Waddington.
Already announced were Emma Roberts (Nerve, Scream Queens), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver, Jem and the Holograms) and rising star Danielle Macdonald (Patti Cake$, Dumplin’, Bird Box).
