Haley Lu Richardson is set to be the female lead of new romantic drama Five Feet Apart from CBS Films alongside Cole Sprouse (Riverdale).
The film follows 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? Justin Baldoni will direct a screenplay from Mikki Daughty and Tobias Iaconis. Production on the project will begin in May.
Haley Lu Richardson has appeared in high profile films including Split and The Edge of Seventeen.
