Selena Gomez isn’t the only former “Wizards of Waverly Place” star to land a new movie role. Jake T. Austin has found one too!
Variety revealed that Jake will take on the lead role in the indie Grantham and Rose, which will begin filming next month in Georgia.
The 17-year-old will star as a young man struggling to find his way as an adult in New York City. A petty crime thrusts him into the company of a feisty 81-year-old African American woman, who teaches him about life and love, and together they take a road trip back to their roots.
The movie will be directed by Kristin Hanggi and produced by Michael Urie, Meghan-Michele German, Evangel Fung, Ryan Spahn and Hanggi via Wonderfalls Entertainment.
