Sofia Alvarez, the screenwriter behind the Netflix hit To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, has teamed up with Netflix to write the adaptation for Dessen’s book, Along For The Ride.
And even more exciting – she’s set to direct the movie that has a pretty great cast so far.
Emma Pasarow and Belmont Cameli star alongside Kate Bosworth , Laura Kariuki, Andie MacDowell, Dermot Mulroney, Genevieve Hannelius, Samia Finnerty, Paul Karmiyran, Marcus Scribner and Ricardo Hurtado. I mean, you can’t argue that cast isn’t amazing.
The story centers around, “Auden, who during the summer before college meets the mysterious Eli, a fellow insomniac. While the seaside town of Colby sleeps, the two embark on a nightly quest to help Auden experience the fun, carefree teen life she never knew she wanted.”
We’re excited to see this one come to life. It’s definitely time for a reread to prepare ourselves for the greatness.
The movie is set to film in North Carolina. You can be that this is one that we will be following closely.
