Eugene Levy is joining the cast of Castille Landon’s Summer Camp as Diane Keaton’s love interest for a wholesome new comedy.
After making minor appearances in various projects since wrapping up his 80-episode run on Schitt’s Creek, Eugene Levy is returning to feature films. Levy is joining the cast of Summer Camp as Diane Keaton’s (Book Club 2: The Next Chapter, Annie Hall) love interest for the upcoming comedy. Castille Landon (After franchise) directs from a script she wrote, with production starting next month in North Carolina. In addition to Levy and Keaton, Kathy Bates and Alfre Woodard will star in the laugh-out-loud concept.
According to Deadline’s exclusive report, Summer Camp tells the story of Nora, Ginny, and Mary, who have been best friends since childhood, spending their summers together inseparably at sleepaway camp. As the years have passed, they’ve grown apart, seeing each other less and less. Still, they agree to meet by the fire pit when a summer camp reunion is up for grabs. Some are looking forward to the reunion, while others are reluctant to reconnect. They’re different people than who they aspired to be as children, but one thing is sure – Nora, Ginny, and Mary need each other, and summer camp reminds them why.
“The opportunity to work with a comedic genius like Eugene is a dream come true as a filmmaker, and I am so grateful for the thoughtful, precise work he has already put into his character,” Landon told Deadline. “I think he’s the perfect counterpart to Diane, and I can’t wait to see them play off one another.”
Levy is a four-time Emmy winner, actor, producer, and writer. Today, it was announced that Levy would join philanthropists James and Louise Temerty and singer, actress, and philanthropist Jackie Richardson as Honorary Fellows of The Royal Conservatory of Music.
Per the Royal Conservatory’s official press release:
“The Honorary Fellow is The Royal Conservatory’s highest designation and is awarded to those who have had a profound impact on society through their contributions to the arts,” said Dr. Peter Simon, Michael and Sonja Koerner, President & CEO, The Royal Conservatory. The 2023 honourees will receive their designation at the signature event held annually at the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning in Toronto, home of Koerner Hall, to support diverse initiatives at The Royal Conservatory.
