Lily Collins & Sam Claflin to Play Love Interests in ‘Love, Rosie’

By  | 



Although Sam Claflin missed his chance to play Harry Osborn in the second installment of The Amazing Spider-Man, a role that went to actor Dane DeHaan, he still has plenty of work to look forward to this year. Most recently, the upcoming romantic-comedy, Love, Rosie, alongside Lily Collins. Yes, besides starring in Snow White-themed films in 2012 (Snow White and the Huntsman and Mirror Mirror, respectively), Sam and Lily both have another commonality.

Based on Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern (who also penned P.S. I Love You), the flick is scheduled to begin filming this May. According to Deadline, Lily will play the lead, Rosie, while Sam will portray her best friend/star-crossed lover, Alex. “The pair are planning to head to the States for college together when Rosie discovers she’s pregnant after a crazy night out with the most popular boy in school. She encourages Alex to go without her and over the next 12 years their lives change but an undeniable connection remains.”

This is shaping up to be a knockout year for both stars. Lily recently wrapped up filming The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones with on- and off-screen love Jamie Campbell Bower, which hits theaters August 23, 2013. Meanwhile, Sam finished shooting another mega-watt movie, The Hunger Games‘ sequel, Catching Fire, opposite Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, in theaters November 22, 2013.
