Fans of the book are excited that director Matthew Lopez has revealed the movie will stay true to McQuiston’s novel due to her involvement behind the scenes. More specifically, Lopez said, “It is an adaptation, not a recitation. I like to think that, as a fan of the novel, I was able to find the balance of serving Casey’s story while also serving the needs of the movie.”

The cast of this film is excellent with Taylor Zakhar Perez and Nicholas Galitzine playing the leading men, Alex Claremont-Diaz and Prince Henry. You may recognize Nicholas Galitzine from Camila Cabello’s Cinderella and Taylor Zakhar Perez from The Kissing Booth 2 &3. Uma Thurman is cast as Alex’s mother, who also happens to be the newly elected United States President. Other names that join the cast include Rachel Hilson, Clifton Collins Jr., Stephen Fry, Sarah Shahi, Ellie Bamber, Aneesh Sheth, Polo Morin, Ahmed Elhaj, Sharon D. Clarke, Malcolm Atobrah, Thomas Flynn, and Akshay Khanna.

We can’t wait for this enemies-to-friends-to-lovers story to come to life on August 11!
