Camille Guaty is seeing purple…
The 45-year-old Puerto Rican and Cuban American actress is set to star opposite Zachary Levi, Zooey Deschanel, Lil Rel Howery and Ravi Patel in Sony Pictures’ live-action adaptation of Harold and the Purple Crayon.
Hailing from Oscar-nominated director Carlos Saldanha, the film is based on the 1955 children’s book by Crockett Johnson that follows Harold, a curious 4-year-old who, with his purple crayon, has the power to create a world of his own.
David Guion and Michael Handelman handled the screenplay adaptation. John Davis is producing through Davis Entertainment.
The film is slated for release in theaters on January 27, 2023.
Guaty recently wrapped a major recuring role on ABC’s hit series The Rookie. She’s previously appeared in series including The Good Doctor, Daytime Divas, Scorpion and Prison Break, and in such films as David Wain’s National Lampoon biopic A Futile and Stupid Gesture and Haifaa Al-Mansour’s Nappily Ever After for Netflix, and Damiel Barnz’ indie Cake, starring Jennifer Aniston.
