VARIETY – In a release plan fitting for a movie about a deadly pandemic that’s forced everyone into lockdown, STX’s sci-fi thriller “Songbird” won’t play in theaters and instead will debut on home entertainment.

Starting on Dec. 11, audiences can rent the film for $19.99 for a 48-hour period. STX said “Songbird” will land on a streaming service following its premium video-on-demand run, but the studio declined to disclose which one.

“The pandemic has affected every aspect of our business, from production to release, but ‘Songbird’ demonstrates that a nimble studio like STX can find effective and profitable ways to make their movies work,” said STXfilms Motion Picture Group chairman Adam Fogelson. “The show must go on. ‘Songbird’ is a thrilling movie that will speak to audiences in this moment as it keeps them on the edge of their seats.”

Produced by Michael Bay, “Songbird” was filmed entirely during the coronavirus crisis. It was the first movie to shoot in Los Angeles in the middle of the ongoing pandemic.

The film takes place years in the future, in which a mutated strand of coronavirus, called COVID-23, continues to wreak havoc on the world’s population. As the country-wide lockdown stretches into its fourth year, infected Americans are forced into quarantine camps. Amid the dystopia, one courier (portrayed by “Riverdale” star KJ Apa) who is immune to the virus, falls in love with an aspiring artist (Sofia Carson), who is believed to become infected.

Adam Mason directed the movie from a script he co-wrote with Simon Boyes. “Songbird” also stars Craig Robinson, Bradley Whitford, Demi Moore and Paul Walter Hauser.

VARIETY – KJ Apa and Sofia Carson will star in the pandemic thriller “Songbird,” joining previously announced cast members Demi Moore, Bradley Whitford, Craig Robinson, Jenna Ortega, Paul Walter Hauser and Peter Stormare.

Songbird” producers announced on July 8 that they had launched principal photography in Los Angeles — the first film to shoot in the city since the start of coronavirus-induced lockdown. SAG-AFTRA issued a “do not work” order on the production on July 2, but rescinded it the next day.

The movie is directed by Adam Mason, who also wrote the script with Simon Boyes. Producers are former Paramount production chief Adam Goodman and former Disney exec Andrew Sugerman’s Invisible Narratives, with Catchlight Films and Michael Bay also producing.

Songbird” takes place two years in the future, as a lockdown (to prevent the spread of coronavirus) is re-implemented after a more serious virus continues to mutate. The movie centers around an essential worker, played by Apa, who has a rare immunity and is therefore able to work as a delivery man. Carson portrays his girlfriend, who’s sheltering at home. To be with the one he loves, he must overcome martial law, murderous vigilantes and a powerful family, headed by Moore’s character.

Apa is best known for starring in “Riverdale.” He recently appeared in Lionsgate’s “I Still Believe,” which marked his first leading role in a studio movie. Carson currently stars in the Netflix feature film “Feel the Beat.”

Apa is repped by UTA, Mandy Jacobsen at Red11 Management, Matt Luber at Luber Roklin Entertainment and Jackoway Austen Tyerman Wertheimer Mandelbaum Morris Bernstein Trattner & Klein. Carson is repped by WME, Ziffren Brittenham and Kleinberg Lange Cuddy & Carlo. ICM Partners and Endeavor Content are handling worldwide sales for the film.

TEEN VOGUE – Every week on Riverdale, we hope to get one step closer to finding out who murdered Jason Blossom. But before we get to the bottom of the small town’s biggest mystery, it seems we’re always thrown another twist or surprise. Plenty has happened so far during the suspenseful first season: we’ve watched Archie and his teacher Ms. Grundy fall into a very illegal relationship — only for her to eventually depart; witnessed Veronica fall into some family drama with her mother; and felt our hearts break for Jughead as he navigates school, friends, and a pretty terrible home life. There’s been plenty more happening in the supposedly quiet town of Riverdale, and we just simply can’t stop get enough of the CW show.

What’s also been great to see is just how much the cast totally loves hanging out with one another. KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse who play Archie and Jughead respectively are total bromance goals. There’s even speculation that Jughead and Betty are dating IRL. And they all have some pretty strong feelings about who actually killed Jason Blossom.

It’s always a little unclear exactly what will happen next on Riverdale, and we’re excited to see how the mystery gets wrapped up (and the possibility of zombies in the show’s second season). In the meantime, it looks like the show’s cast paid homage to another CW classic: Gossip Girl. Teen Vogue received some glamorous photos of the actors, giving their best Manhattanite eleganza. They’ve gone from Riverdale and straight to the Upper East Side. And most importantly, this most definitely makes Jughead the show’s Gossip Girl considering all his snooping and voiceovers, right?
