Deadline — Haley Lu Richardson has been set to star opposite Cole Sprouse in “Five Feet Apart, CBS Films’ romantic drama that is being directed by Jane the Virgin‘s Justin Baldoni. The pic is now set to begin production in May.
The screenplay from Mikki Daughty and Tobias Iaconis centers on Stella and Will, two young people who refuse to be defined by the obstacles that separate them, asking the question what would love look like if you were forbidden to touch? Moises Arias has also been cast as Poe, Stella’s lifelong best friend.
Oscar-winning producer Cathy Schulman (Crash) is producing through her Welle Entertainment along with Baldoni via his Wayfarer Entertainment. Mark Ross is overseeing for CBS Films.
The move reunites Schulman and Richardson, who executive produced and co-starred, respectively, in 2016’s The Edge of Seventeen. Richardson, whose recent film credits also include Split and Columbus, is repped by Gersh, 3 Arts Entertainment and Coast to Coast Talent.
Earlier today (March 11), Haley Lu attended the ‘The New Romantic’ Premiere during 2018 SXSW Festival in support of fiancé Brett Dier who stars in the film. Images have been added to our gallery.
