Kathryn Newton Hints About Season 2 of Big Little Lies: “My Role Is So Challenging”

After telling us about her hilarious new film, Blockers, the actress gave us some scoop on the hit HBO show.

COVETEUR – You know those movies that produce genuine, uncontrollable laughter that lasts for way longer than you’d actually like it to? That’s how I felt while watching Blockers. The base storyline is a classic—teens trying to lose their virginity on prom night—but this time, it revolves around a group of young women, their #sexpact2018, and their hilarious pack of parents (Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, and John Cena), who of course try to sabotage it. I left the theater still smiling, and was even more eager to talk to Kathryn Newton, who plays Julie in the film.

‘Big Little Lies’ Actress Kathryn Newton to Star in Live-Action Pokemon Movie

VARIETY Kathryn Newton, who broke out in her turn as Reese Witherspoon’s daughter in “Big Little Lies,” is in negotiations for the female lead in Legendary’s Pokemon film titled “Detective Pikachu,” based on the titular character, sources tell Variety.

“The Get Down” star Justice Smith will co-star opposite Newton.

Rob Letterman is on board to direct from a script by Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch.

First introduced in Japan in 1996, Pokemon has spawned more than 295 million video games sold worldwide, 23.6 billion trading card game cards shipped to 74 countries, and an animated series spanning 20 seasons. The hugely popular “Pokemon Go” app saw the pocket monsters surge back into the pop culture consciousnesses last year.

Universal Pictures will handle distribution of the live-action film outside Japan, as it has done with Legendary’s other films for years. The Pokémon Company’s long time movie collaborator, Toho, will handle distribution of the film franchise in Japan, which it previously did for its partnership with Legendary on “Godzilla.”

Newton’s credits include HBO’s Emmy-winning “Big Little Lies” and movies “Lady Bird” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Upcoming projects include the role of Amy March in the BBC’s “Little Women” miniseries, the CW/WB’s Supernatural spinoff “Wayward Sisters,” the Universal comedy “Blockers” for Point Grey Pictures, and “Ben Is Back” opposite Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges.

She is represented by Innovative Artists and Management 360.

Lights, Camera, Kathryn Newton in Action

The actress has had a breakout year, with her list of projects only continuing to grow.

WWD – Kathryn Newton maintains that she’s just a normal kid. A normal kid in one of the biggest Emmy winners of the year and two Oscar-season contenders.

“I’ve had a really great time — this past year has been, like, nonstop for me,” says the bubbly 20-year-old before ticking off her current slate.

“I just finished a movie five months ago in Atlanta called ‘Blockers,’ and then I had no break and went straight to Ireland from Atlanta to start shooting ‘Little Women’ for the BBC. Then I went home for a week, and then I started my pilot ‘Wayward’ in Vancouver. I started at 5:30 in the morning and wrapped at 10:30 p.m., and made a flight at 10:50 — I made my flight by two minutes. And then I got here and I got to the premiere of ‘Three Billboards’ in New York. So much fun. And in between I was traveling — I went to the London premiere, too, which was insane. It was the biggest premiere I’ve ever been to. Like, I got out of the car and people were just screaming.”

‘Wayward Sisters’: The CW Spinoff Adds ‘Supernatural’ Trio & Newcomer To Cast

DEADLINEEXCLUSIVE: This is the Wayward Sisters core cast Supernatural fans had been wishing for — Briana Buckmaster, Kathryn Newton and Katherine Ramdeen from the original series have closed deals to join the proposed Supernatural spinoff toplined by fellow Supernatural standout Kim Rhodes. Also cast in the project, which is being developed as a planted spinoff and will have a backdoor pilot airing as an episode of Supernatural‘s upcoming 13th season, is young actress Clark Backo (Designated Survivor), who would play a newly created character.

Wayward Sisters, from a quartet of Supernatural writers-producers — showrunners Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer as well as Phil Sgriccia, Robert Berens — tells the story of Sheriff Jody Mills (Rhodes) and a group of troubled young women — all orphaned by supernatural tragedy — these “wayward sisters” emerge as a formidable force against the supernatural, under Mills’s training and protection. Unlike the original series, which centers on a biological brothers, Wayward Sisters is about a sisterhood of girls in a foster family.

Lending Jody a hand will be series fan-favorite Sheriff Donna Hanscum (Buckmaster), a relative novice to the hunter’s life, but a close friend who Jody can confide in.

Newton will reprise her role as orphan Claire Novak, who was introduced to the supernatural world when her father became the vessel for the angel Castiel (Misha Collins). Now, a gifted hunter, she lives with Jody, but struggles against her rules.

Ramdeen is runaway Alex Jones, who had been put under Jody’s care. She was rescued by the Winchesters from a family of vampires who used her as a lure for unsuspecting humans. Traumatized by the violence, she has resolved not to hunt…until a threat emerges in Sioux Falls that threatens her new family.

Backo will play Patience Turner, a new member of the Wayward Sisterhood. A high school over-achiever, Patience’s life is turned upside down when she discovers she’s a powerful psychic, a gift she inherited from her estranged grandmother (and season one Supernatural character) Missouri Moseley. Hunted by dark forces for her power, Patience finds refuge with Jody and her wayward family.

Loretta Devine, who played Kansas psychic Missouri Moseley in a memorable appearance as a Winchester family friend in the season one episode “Home,” will return to Supernatural for an episode from the upcoming season.

Written by Berens and Dabb, Wayward Sisters hails from Warner Bros TV, which produces Supernatural. Dabb, Singer, Sgriccia and Berens executive produce.

Jody, Claire, Alex and Donna have been the dream quartet of characters of a spinoff fans had been rallying for, dubbed Wayward Daughters. Named in part after the title of the Kansas song that opens every Supernatural finale, “Carry On Wayward Son”, the Wayward Daughters spinoff idea was the result of a grassroots fan effort that started two years ago, soon after Bloodlines, the first proposed Supernatural spinoff, did not go forward. The idea had been embraced by some of the Supernatural actresses who have supported the effort on social media.
