Heartstopper and Young Royals fans: this one’s for you. The highly-anticipated live-action adaptation of Red, White & Royal Blue, the iconic New York Bestseller from Casey McQuinston, has received a release date and teaser poster.
Launching 11 August on Prime Video, the film stars The Kissing Booth’s Taylor Zakhar Perez as Alex Claremont-Diaz and Cinderella’s Nicholas Galitzine as Prince Henry.
The novel follows the story of Alex, the son of America’s first female president (played by Uma Thurman, how camp!), and his complicated relationship with his royal counterpart across the pond.
As per a synopsis from Amazon Prime Video: “Separated by an ocean, their long-running feud hasn’t really been an issue, until a disastrous—and very public—altercation at a royal event becomes tabloid fodder, driving a potential wedge in U.S./British relations at the worst possible time. “Going into damage-control mode, their families and handlers force the two rivals into a staged “truce.” But as Alex and Henry’s icy relationship unexpectedly begins to thaw into a tentative friendship, the friction that existed between them sparks something deeper than they ever expected.” Produced by Greg Berlanti, Red, White & Royal Blue will also star Clifton Collins Jr., Sarah Shahi, Rachel Hilson, Stephen Fry, Ellie Bamber, Thomas Flynn, Malcolm Atobrah, Akshay Khanna, Sharon D Clarke, Aneesh Sheth, and Juan Castano.
