Riverdale’s Madelaine Petsch will soon be teaming up with Emma Roberts for a brand new romcom.
According to Deadline, actress Madelaine Petsch is the latest to join the cast of About Time starring Emma Roberts.
Directed by Marius Weisberg, the forthcoming romcom centers on two people who believe in love, but haven’t ever been able to find its true meaning. Lucky for them, fate intervenes on a stormy New Year’s Eve and thrusts them into each other’s lives.
For her part, Madelaine Petsch is set to play the role of an excited girlfriend who just can’t wait for her boyfriend to pop the question on New Year’s Eve.
Others already on board to star in the upcoming romantic comedy include Thomas Mann, Anna Akana, and Lewis Tan.
Behind the camera, the movie features a script written by Tiffany Paulsen. Paulsen and Roberts are no strangers to working together— in fact, Paulsen also penned the script for Netflix’s Holidate which also starred Roberts.
Currently, there’s no word on when we can expect to see About Fate premiere, but fans of Petsch can catch the actress starring in The CW’s Riverdale as Cheryl Blossom.
Riverdale season 5 returns to The CW on August 11, 2021.
