As a child, Madison Iseman was obsessed with the magical world of the ‘Harry Potter’ book series. She wanted to be a film editor when she was a kid because the little girl was lured by the words falling on the screen while projecting the film. But later, she shifted her focus to the glitter and charm of stardom. By the age of 16, Madison decided to move to Los Angeles with her mother to pursue a career in acting. She made an unforgettable debut as a co-host in the 2013 web series ‘Mahomie Madness’ from AwesomenessTV.com. She got the right person at the right time as a mentor when she was cast in CMT series ‘Still the King’ alongside the legendary Billy Ray Cyrus. ‘Still the King,’ which premiered on June 12, 2016, earned positive reviews for Madison’s performance as Charlotte, the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus’ character, and it ultimately launched her career as an actress.
The actress got her next breakthrough when she was cast in the 2017 movie ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.’ Madison played the character of Bethany Walker alongside Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. She has also appeared in the ABC sitcom ‘Modern Family‘ as the character of Henry Danger. Her other roles include Pam in ‘Beauty Mark’ and Sarah in ‘Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween.’ So now you must be wondering what is the next Madison Iseman movie?

4. Clouds (2020)
‘Clouds’ is an upcoming drama movie from Justin Baldoni, who acts as the director and producer. The script comes from Kara Holden, Patrick Kopka, and Casey La Scala. From what we can understand, this is the kind of movie that will tug at your heartstrings and have you reaching for the tissue, by showing the depths of human love and emotions. The movie is based on the novel titled, “Fly a Little Higher: How God Answered a Mom’s Small Prayer in a Big Way”, by Laura Sobiech.
The premise follows a teenager who is diagnosed with a very rare form of bone cancer. Instead of letting the news of his impending demise get him down, he decides to inspire others in the little time that he has left. We are seeing a slew of disease-related movies coming out recently. The films uphold individual courage and how we go out of our ways to help others when we have nothing left to lose. Basically, when faced with our demise, we react in the most selfless ways possible, because we understand that there is no outrunning or outmaneuvering the upcoming situation.
It is quite obvious that the upcoming movie will be intense and will rest on flawless performances to deliver the message. Madison Iseman is sure to stand out amidst strong performers as she tries to make her role memorable. Being in the post-production stage, there is no release date for ‘Clouds’ yet.

‘Nocturne’ is the first movie which is a part of a very exciting deal struck between Blumhouse and Amazon. The plot follows a greedy individual who makes a deal for greatness, trying to take the shortcut, only to get in over her head. Knowing Blumhouse’s past works, the movie has rightly been touted as a horror thriller.
It comes from Zu Quirke, who has also written it. The premise is rather straightforward. A very talented pianist makes a Faustian deal to overtake her sister at a prestigious academy for musicians. One can only expect the kind of horror that will come as a consequence of the deal.
That being said, it is evident that the movie will have intense performances in order to portray the plot’s seriousness. Therefore, we can thank Madison Iseman for being a part of the cast, since she will surely go above and beyond to make the performance memorable. The movie is currently in post-production stages and does not have a release date yet.

We are introduced to a working-class Italian-American Catholic boy, who happens to be nice. He decides to invite an affluent, Ivy League Protestant girl to his family’s traditional feast.
