Get ready, guys, because Lana Condor is saying goodbye to Lara Jean Covey and hello to a brand new role! That’s right, the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before star is taking her acting talents to HBO Max for a brand new romantic comedy called Moonshot, and we’ve got all the exciting deets.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming film — set to be produced by Greg Berlanti — will have a major sci-fi twist. Get this — the publication reported that, “Moonshot is set in a future where Mars is terraformed and colonized by the best humanity has to offer. Two very different college students wind up joining forces and sneak onboard a space shuttle to the red planet in order to be united with their significant others.”
Lana is set to star as Sophie, a girl who’s headed to Mars looking for her boyfriend, Calvin. Chris Winterbaue is set to direct it, while Max Taxe will write the screenplay. Sorry, guys, we don’t have a release date just yet, but hopefully the streaming service will announce one soon.
As fans know, this isn’t the only movie on the horizon for the 23-year-old actress. Yep, the third installment to TATBILB, To All The Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean, is set to hit Netflix soon. Unfortunately, there’s no release date for that highly-anticipated flick either, but Lana did spill some tea on what fans can expect. Back in February, when talking to Entertainment Tonight, she explained that her character definitely grows up in the third film, calling it the “most mature” out of all three movies.
“She really starts to make decisions for herself that might be unpopular but I think at the end of the day, as a young woman, you have to protect your own heart and make the decisions that are truly right for you regardless of the other people around you,” Lana dished. “Lara Jean loves love and she loves the guys, but at the end of the day, I know that she’s good on her own as well. We’ll see. It’s very satisfying, like, ‘Yes, girl! Get your life!’”
