Star Wars’ John Boyega and Black Panther’s Letitia Wright are to star in a sci-fi romance story. The film is based on author Katie Khan’s novel, Hold Back the Stars.
The book is about a couple who reminisce on their love and life together on Earth with only 90 minutes of oxygen left. “Hooray! Some absolutely dream casting for my novel,” Khan tweeted.
Well, I see that secret I was so anxiously keeping is out. Hooray! Some absolutely dream casting for my novel, Hold Back the Stars, here (BESIDE MYSELF WITH EXCITEMENT) ✨ @TransworldBooks @GalleryBooks https://t.co/UvjLLcNIpq

“Beside myself with excitement” she continued.
However, this isn’t the first time the British breakout stars have united. Long before rocking the Met Gala red carpet together (and fuelling many rumours of dating), the pair have actually been good friends for a while, dating back to their days as students of the Identity School of Acting.
