Staff Reporter | On 02, Aug 2020Reading time: 1 mins
Riverdale star Lili Reinhart is heading to Amazon Prime Video this summer in new film Chemical Hearts – and a new trailer gives us a first glimpse.
Written and directed by Richard Tanne, the film is based on the book Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland. It follows 17-year-old Henry Page (Austin Abrams), who has never been in love. He fancies himself a romantic, but the kind of once-in-a-lifetime love he’s been hoping for just hasn’t happened yet.
Then, on the first day of senior year, he meets transfer student Grace Town (Lili Reinhart) and it seems all that is about to change. When Grace and Henry are chosen to co-edit the school paper, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious newcomer. As he learns the heartbreaking secret that has changed her life, he finds himself falling in love with her — or at least the person he thinks she is.
The film is produced by Tanne and Alex Saks, with Reinhart also exec-producing. She and Abrams are joined in front of the camera by Sarah Jones, Adhir Kalyan, Kara Young, Coral Peña and CJ Hoff. You can see them all in action on 21st August, when the film premieres on Amazon Prime Video.
