Noah Centineo fans, get ready to add a new movie to your watchlist, because Netflix has acquired the rights to his latest rom-com, The Perfect Date.
Centineo, who starred in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and Sierra Burgess is a Loser – both released on Netflix last year – has become a veritable Netflix star and , an internet meme in his own right. Need proof? Just look at his Instagram count, which rose from 0.8 million before the release of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before to 13.4 million.
With a sequel to that film already on the way, Netflix is doubling down on Centineo’s status as the internet’s dream boyfriend, snapping up the global rights to The Perfect Date from producers Awesomeness Films and Ace Entertainment.
Centineo will literally become that dream boyfriend as he plays Brooks Rattigan, who, to raise funds for college, creates a dating app where he’ll “stand in” for non-existent boyfriends. But playing a different character every night of the week leads him to question who he really is, and who he wants to be with.
Noah stars alongside Riverdale’s Camila Mendes, Laura Marano (Lady Bird, Austin & Ally), Odiseas Georgiadis (Trinkets) and two-time Emmy nominee Matt Walsh (Veep).
Te film is directed by Chris Nelson (My Dead Ex) and written by Steve Bloom and Randall Green, with Matt Kaplan and John Tomko producing and Jordan Levin, Brett Bouttier, Matthew Signer, Marc Beinstock, Robyn Marshall, Scott Levine, Don Dunn, Steve Bloom and David Blackman on board as Executive Producers.
The deal continues Netflix’s relationship with Awesomeness Films, which previously partnered with Netflix on 2017’s You Get Me as well as To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.
