Starring Brian Cox and Kelly Reilly, Little Wing begins production this month from Awesomeness for Paramount+

Paramount+ today announced the start of production and cast for the service’s latest original coming-of-age film, LITTLE WING, from Awesomeness and inspired by the New Yorker article of the same name by Susan Orlean. The film starts production this month in Portland, Ore.


LITTLE WING follows Kaitlyn, a 13-year-old girl who, reeling from her parent’s divorce and the pending loss of her home, is drawn into the world of pigeon racing. She hopes to solve her family’s financial woes by stealing a valuable bird but instead forms a bond with the owner who cultivates her love of the sport.

Starring in LITTLE WING are Brian Cox (“Succession”) as Jaan, the pigeon racer; Kelly Reilly (YELLOWSTONE, “Here,” “A Haunting in Venice”) as Maddie, Kaitlyn’s mom; Brooklynn Prince (“Cocaine Bear,” “The Florida Project”) as Kaitlyn; and Che Tafari (“Me Time”) as Adam, Kaitlyn’s classmate and friend.

Written by Academy Award nominee John Gatins (“Flight”), the film will be directed and executive produced by DGA Award nominee Dean Israelite (“Are You Afraid of the Dark?,” “Power Rangers”). John Gatins and Naomi Despres serve as producers. LITTLE WING is executive produced by Karen Rosenfelt, Donald De Line, Susan Orlean, Brian Cox, Don Dunn, and Liz Brandenburg.

Little Wing begins production this month and will be available on Paramount+ sometime in the future.
