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, Oregon.

Little Wing follows Kaitlyn, a 13-year-old girl who, reeling from her parents' 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.
