Lynn Collins was introduced in season 10 as Leah on The Walking Dead series. Her character formed a bond and eventually a romantic relationship with Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus). He would later discover she was a member of the Reapers, a group who had terrorized Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and her group, the Wardens. She would go on to betray Daryl and his group, and he would allow her to escape. When they encounter her again, Daryl isn’t so kind, and as she attacks Maggie, he shoots her in the head. Collins did a fantastic job as a villain, and now she has been cast in a new movie, Someone Like You.
Variety announced the cast members for this new movie that has already begun filming in and around Nashville. Collins will join Sarah Fisher, Jake Allyn, Robyn Lively, Bart Johnson and Scott Reeves.
Someone Like You is the first novel to screen adaptation by Karen Kingsbury Productions, and Tyler Russell directs the film. Based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Karen Kingbury, the story follows a woman whose beautiful life is built on a lie. She must face her past to ensure a beautiful future by overcoming and forgiving while she tries to reconcile with her family.
The film is scheduled to wrap production in November 2022, with an expected release in the fall of 2023.
Collins shared her excitement about the production on Instagram.
