Ritter will play Sam, a homeless man who joins Riley on her journey. Pierre Morel is directing pic from a screenplay by Chad St. John.

In addition, he will join Julianne Moore in Sebastian Lelio’s American adaption of his 2013 Chilean-Spanish drama, Gloria. From producers Pablo Larrain and Juan de Dios Larrain, the film centers on a divorcee in her 50s with two grown children, seeking companionship and rediscovering her strength and love for life.
