There’s a new dream team in town!

Two of our all-time faves, Charles Melton (who plays Reggie Mantle on “Riverdale“) and Yara Shahidi (who plays Zoey Johnson on “Grown-ish“), are joining forces for a brand-new movie! The two are set to star in the on-screen adaptation of “The Sun Is Also A Star,” the New York Times best-selling book by Nicola Yoon.

According to a recent report, the film centers on Yara’s character, Natasha, a girl in New York City whose life changes when she falls in love right before her family is set to be deported back to Jamaica.

We can’t wait to see it come to life on the big screen! In the meantime, stay up-to-date on all the behind-the-scenes action on social media:
