Sam Trammell, Katharine McPhee Foster, ‘Playing With Fire’s Christian Convery Join ‘The Tiger Rising’ – Sam Trammell, Katharine McPhee Foster and young actor Christian Convery are set to star alongside Queen Latifah, Dennis Quaid and Madalen Mills in The Tiger Rising. Ray Giarratana is directing the film from a screenplay he adapted based on the 2001 New York Times bestselling children’s book by Kate DiCamillo. The story centers on Rob Horton (Convery), a 12-year-old who finds a caged tiger in the center of the woods near his home. Shortly after, Rob meets Sistine Bailey (Mills), a girl who shows her feelings as readily as Rob hides his. As they learn to trust each other and become friends, Rob and Sistine prove that some things – like memories, heartaches and tigers – can’t be locked up forever. Trammell and McPhee Foster will play Rob’s parents, Robert Horton Sr. and Caroline Horton. – Read more at Deadline
