Now this is the pairing of our dreams! Vanessa Hudgens and Charles Melton are teaming up for an upcoming movie, and we could not be more excited! The High School Musical legend and Riverdale hottie will be joined by Will Smith and Alexander Ludwig in Sony’s Bad Boys 4 Life, the last installment of Bad Boys. According to Variety, Vanessa, Charles and Alexander are portraying “a modern, highly specialized police unit that collides with the old school Bad Boys.” As for who will be playing the villain role, that’s still being sorted out.
Naturally, Vanessa and Charles are beyond pumped about their new project – so they each took to social media to share the news and express their excitement with fans.
Charles’ Riverdale co-star and IRL bae Camila Mendes even re-posted an article on her Instagram Stories about Charles’ new achievement – ugh, what a supportive girlfriend she is!
Vanessa has sure been up to a lot lately! Fans totally loved her recent role (er, roles – since she played look-a-likes!) in Netflix’s film The Princess Switch. And of course, we can’t wait to see her upcoming film, Second Act, which she stars in alongside Jennifer Lopez. Up next? In 2019, you can catch her in the Netflix thriller Polar and Fox’s upcoming production of Rent: Live, which is set to air on Jan. 27.
As for Charles, he’s got a lot in the works too! Aside from playing the oh so swoon-worthy jock, Reggie, on Riverdale – he previously appeared in Glee and American Horror Story. Up next for him is The Sun Is Also A Star with Yara Shahidi that comes out on May 17, 2019. We can’t wait!
The movie is set to start production next month and will hit theaters in January of 2020 – so don’t get too excited. The film is still a whole year away!
