Jenny Ortega’s new movie Finestkind will be coming to streaming later this year.
The Wednesday star leads the cast of the crime thriller, which is produced by Yellowstone’s Taylor Sheridan and written / directed by Legend’s Brian Helgeland.
Ahead of the movie premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday (September 8), it has been confirmed that Finestkind will stream on Paramount+ in the UK and the US in November.
In Finestkind, two brothers, Tom and Charlie (Emancipation’s Ben Foster and Neighbours’ Toby Wallace), are reunited as adults after years of estrangement in two very different upbringings.
The brothers try to strike it rich with a commercial fishing operation, but hard times force them to make a potentially-deadly deal with a local crime family.
This agreement ends up putting an innocent young woman, Nicky (Jenna Ortega), and the boys’ father (Tommy Lee Jones) in serious danger that only Tom and Charlie can save them from.
Finestkind’s supporting cast includes Law & Order: Organized Crime’s Lolita Davidovich, Lethal Weapon’s Clayne Crawford, Fear the Walking Dead star Aaron Stanford and Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power actor Ismael Cruz Córdova.
This is one of several major projects Jenna Ortega currently has in the works, including the second season of her hit Netflix series Wednesday.
She was recently filming the long-awaited Beetlejuice sequel with Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder for director Tim Burton in London before it was shut down by the SAG-AFTRA strike. She is set to star opposite Paul Rudd in the dark comedy Death of a Unicorn and produce the romantic drama Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall.
When she hasn’t been busy with her high-profile film and TV projects, Jenna has also had to recently deny “ridiculous” rumours that she is dating Johnny Depp – who she says she has never actually met.
