Look, we’ll basically watch anything that Robbie Amell does – cause like he’s easy on the eyes and a good actor. Gonna admit though that we didn’t see this next move in his career coming.
The actor has signed on for a new film role. He is set to star in and produce that adaptation of Float. Float is a Wattpad novel from author Kate Marchant. The story is in the top 20 stories in the teen romance category of Wattpad.
The story centers around, “Waverly, who after her parents’ messy divorce finds herself yanked from her comfortable life in Alaska to spend the summer in her aunt’s sunny beach town. Waverly quickly begins to clash with one of her new neighbors and the polar opposite of everything she represents: an arrogant, jaded beach bum named Blake (Amell). Things take a turn after Blake learns Waverly’s embarrassing secret — that she can’t swim — and her one-time nemesis, who’s the town lifeguard, offers to teach her.”
“Kate wrote such an incredibly touching and relatable love story,” Amell said in a statement. “I hope the fans are as excited as I am to see these characters come to life.”
I haven’t read the story, so don’t know what to think. I will read it though, cause again, Robbie Amell.
Wattpad has teamed with Collective Pictures. Collective Pictures’ Jeff Chan, Robbie Amell and Chris Paré will produce, alongside Wattpad’s Aron Levitz and Jamie D. Greenberg. Wattpad’s Allen Lau will executive produce. Sarah Timmins of Black Birds Entertainment will also executive produce.
