Katie Holmes has joined the cast of THE GIVER alongside Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites and Odeya Rush. The story follows a perfect world where there is no conflict, racism or sickness. Every member of this society has a specific role, and 12-year-old Jonas (Thwaites) is selected to be the Receiver of Memories and he slowly uncovers the truth behind his world’s past. Holmes will play Jonas’ mother, who is a firm believer in their society’s ways.
Michael Mitnick (“The Current War”) wrote the most recent draft that Phillip Noyce (“Salt”) will direct. Producing will be John Heyman.
Holmes was last in “Jack and Jill” and will next appear in “Miss Meadows.”
She is repped by ICM.
