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:
10 months ago @nicolayoon posted a pic of her book “The Sun is Also A Star” asking who should play Daniel. That same day i bought the book and read it in two days. Those 10 months led to destiny today and i am so excited to be a part of this film opposite of the lovely @yarashahidi Special thanks to my reps & special thanks to MGM & WARNER BROTHERS for this opportunity With so much love, Charles i love u mom & dad
In case you missed it, Charles isn’t the only “Riverdale” star working on a new project! Cole Sprouse’s upcoming movie just got a release date.
