“Wish You Well”
Posted by Linny on October 10, 2012

Seamus has been cast in the screen adaptation of David Baldacci’s bestselling book Wish You Well. Principal photography has just begun on the film and it’s set to continue throughout early November in Giles County, VA.

WISH YOU WELL is a coming-of-age story set in the 1940s. After a family tragedy, a young girl moves from New York with her younger brother to live with their great-grandmother on a Virginia farm and comes closer to understanding the land and roots that inspired her father’s writings while discovering herself, the love of family and the power of truly believing.

The film is being directed by Darnell Martin and stars Josh Lucas, Mackenzie Foy and Ellen Burstyn with Ned Bellamy, Laura Fraser, Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick, Alano Miller and introduces Virginia native JP Vanderloo as Oz. The film is a collaboration between Life Out Loud Films, Baldacci Entertainment and Copper Beech Productions.

I’m not sure yet as to who Seamus is playing but I think it’s the role of Jimmy “Diamond” Skinner. Here’s the casting call discription for Diamond.

“Diamond” is a mountain boy.  He is unique, confident, strong-willed, opinionated and charming.  Diamond marches to the beat of his own drummer…fishing, exploring, and sometimes getting into trouble. 10-13 yrs old.  Caucasian.
