Bella Thorne and Patrick Schwarzenegger have been cast as the leads in the upcoming movieMidnight Sun. The film is based off of the YA book by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer and is set to start shooting in September.
The movie centers around Katie, played by Bella, a 17 year old who has a rare skin disease that has kept her indoors her entire life. When she meets Charlie, played by Patrick, her summer will heat up and the two embark on romantic journey full of ups and downs.
Judging by Patrick’s steamy performance in Ariana Grande‘s “Right There” music video, we have a feeling we’re going to love seeing him as the lead in Midnight Sun. Of course, we can’t help but wonder how Bella’s boyfriend Gregg Sulkin feels about the whole thing – he and Patrick have been friends for a long time, and now he’s going to have to kiss Bella quite a bit.
While we’re sure Gregg understands (after all, he’s in the industry too!), there will probably be plenty of jokes between the two besties. Plus, Bella’s friends with Patrick’s ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus – talk about a crazy web of connections!
