Last month, Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard joined Ansel Elgort, Sarah Paulson, and Nicole Kidman in NYC to begin filming The Goldfinch.
Elgort stars in the lead role of Theo who, after his mother dies in a terrorist bombing at an NYC art museum, finds himself living in Las Vegas with his deadbeat father before getting involved in a series of art forgeries. Wolfhad plays a troublemaker Theo knew when he was young, while Paulson will play Xandra, the girlfriend of Theo’s father, and Kidman will play a New York socialite who takes also takes him in.
