Kelly Preston and John Travolta’s daughter Ella Bleu Travolta becomes Alice in the upcoming modern retelling of Alice in Wonderland, named Get Lost. “I am very pleased to announce this opportunity that has come to me and I am looking forward to working with Daniela Amavia and Michael Mendelsohn on this exciting new project!” she wrote on Instagram.
Under the direction of Daniela Amavia, the film will follow Travolta’s character on an adventure through Budapest. According to Deadline, Alicia/Alice decides to fulfill her mother’s last wish of backpacking across Europe; however, her trip takes an unexpected route when she runs into “an enigmatic young man and with a bunch of other unlikely individuals.”
The film will start production this summer in Budapest, Hungary. Patriot Pictures’ Michael Mendelsohn and Lynn Kressel are in charge of the production, while Valerie McCaffrey is the Casting Director, and Natalie Perrotta will be the executive producer. Mendelsohn’s Union Patriot Capital Management fully finances the movie.
The actress started following her famous parents’ steps in Old Dogs (2009) and The Poison Rose (2019). Recently, she appeared with her dad in a Scotts Miracle-Gro commercial aired during Super Bowl LV. In the ad, Ella Bleu recreates her dad’s iconic dance moves from Grease.
Last month she took social media to wish John Travolta a happy birthday. “Happy Birthday to the most incredible man I have ever known. You are not only the best Dad ever, but you are also my best friend,” she gushed. ”Thank you for raising us, helping us and loving us and thank you for all of the good you do every day.”
Adding that “the world is so lucky to have you and so are we. I love you Daddy. I had the best time celebrating your birthday with you yesterday. ❤️❤️❤️.”
In July 2020, she dedicated beautiful words to her mom Kelly Preston, who passed away at the age of 57 after battling for two years with breast cancer. “I have never met anyone as courageous, strong, beautiful and loving as you,” she wrote. “Anyone who is lucky enough to have known you or to have ever been in your presence will agree that you have a glow and a light that never ceases to shine and that makes anyone around you feel instantly happy. Thank you for being there for me no matter what. Thank you for your love. Thank you for your help and thank you for making this world a better place. You have made life so beautiful and I know you will continue to do so always. I love you so much mama.”
