Robbie Amell has landed a new movie role in a YA novel adaptation.
The star of Upload and The Flash will both star in and produce Float, based on a novel by Kate Marchant, which originated on Wattpad.
The story has racked up 25.5 million reads on the site and is one of Wattpad’s the most popular teen romance stories.
Float follows 17-year-old Waverly who after her parents’ messy divorce finds herself yanked from her comfortable life in Alaska to spend the summer at her aunt’s beach house in Florida. There she clashes with her arrogant jaded beach bum neighbour named Blake (Amell).
“Kate wrote such an incredibly touching and relatable love story. I hope the fans are as excited as I am to see these characters come to life,” Amell said in a statement.
