Open Road has bought U.S. rights to Bella Thorne and Patrick Schwarzenegger’s romantic drama “Midnight Sun” and set a July 24 release date.

One night, she meets an ex-high school athlete (played by Schwarzenegger) she’s secretly admired for years and embarks on a romance while hiding her condition from him.
