Camila Mendes is doing a little Sole searching…
The 26-year-old Brazilian American actress and Riverdale star has joined STX’s after-market sneakers high-stakes feature drama American Sole.
The film follows two twentysomethings (Pete Davidson and O’Shea Jackson) with mountains of college debt who use the fast cash of after-market sneaker reselling to achieve their American Dream. But when their startup runs out of cash and a shady investor is their only way out, the dream quickly becomes a nightmare.
Mendes will star as Jess, the girlfriend of Davidson’s character in the film, which has been billed in the vein of STX hit Hustlers.
The film will be written and directed by How To Make It In America creator Ian Edelman and produced by Kevin Hart and NBA All-Star Chris Paul.
Stadium Goods, the world’s premier sneaker and streetwear marketplace, serves as a consulting producer on the project.
Mendes most recently starred in the indie film Palm Springs opposite Andy Samberg and Christin Milioti, which scored a record acquisition deal at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year by Hulu.
Mendes stars opposite Jesse T. Usher in Netflix’s thriller Dangerous Lies, as well as The New Romantic alongside Jessica Barden, which premiered at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival and was released by The Orchard.
Her additional credits include The Perfect Date starring opposite Noah Centineo and the Sara Seligman directed film, Coyote Lake.
Mendes has more than 22 million followers on Instagram.
She’s also a new spokesperson for Urban Decay make up.
