Ever since Chilling Adventures of Sabrina ended, we have been wanting to see Kiernan Shipka on our screens again and, finally, our wish came true as she, alongside Nico Hiraga, will star in the film Sweethearts. If you want to discover more, keep reading!
Here we go!
According to Deadline, Kiernan Shipka and Nico Hiraga are set to star in Sweethearts with Dollface creator Jordan Weiss on board to direct. The film will be produced by Picturestart for New Line Cinema and is currently in production. Weiss also co-wrote the script with Dan Brier. Caleb Hearon, Tramell Tillman, and Christine Taylor are also part of the ensemble.
As for the plot of the movie, we have some pretty interesting details. The film tells the story of two college freshmen who decided to stick with their high school sweethearts and now to have to pull a “Turkey Dump” and break up with them over “Drunksgiving” – the one chaotic night before Thanksgiving in their hometown that puts their codependent friendship to the test.
The story is quite familiar but it never gets old because we can all identify with the dilemma of risking exploring something new at an age where you are not very clear about what you want or should do.
Sweethearts also feature Erik Feig and Jessica Switch, which are producing, and Julia Hammer, Samie Kim Falvey, and Shayne Fiske Goldner are executive producing on behalf of Picturestart. Brier will also executive produce.
In any case, Sweethearts has a team of heavyweights in the industry and we’re sure that the plot will have a twist that will make us not forget the movie. We’re ready for Sweethearts to take us from comedy to drama. Also, Kiernan Shipka and Nico Hiraga together…POWER COUPLE!
