Lili Reinhart (The CW’s Riverdale) is set to executive produce and star in Amazon Studios Coming Of Age Drama Chemical Hearts.
In Chemical Hearts, 17-year-old Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a romantic, but the once in a lifetime kind of love that he’s been hoping for just hasn’t been in the cards for him—at least not yet. Instead, he’s been happy to focus all of his attention on finally becoming the editor of his high school newspaper. Then, on the first day of senior year, he meets transfer student Grace Town (Reinhart) and knows everything’s about to change.
The film is based on the novel Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland. Production is already underway in New Jersey. Richard Tanne will write and direct the Amazon Original which is set for Amazon Prime Video.
