Our favorite small screen actor is heading to the big leagues!

KJ Apa is having a great week. The breakout teen drama where he plays Archie Andrews, ‘Riverdale,’ was renewed for a third season and now he’ll be starring in a new movie called, “The Hate U Give.”

The movie follows a teen in high school, Amandla Stenberg, who witnesses a police officer murder her best friend. The 20-year-old will play Amandla’s boyfriend in the film! The movie also stars Sabrina Carpenter and Megan Lawless.

There’s no word on a release date yet, but with an all-star cast like this we know it’s going to be amazing!
