Sabrina Carpenter to star, executive produce ‘The Distance From Me To You’ adaptation

Sabrina Carpenter is gearing up to help bring another YA book to the big screen.

According to Deadline, actress and singer Sabrina Carpenter has signed on to star in the big screen adaptation of The Distance From Me To you.

Based on the YA novel of the same name by Marina Gessner, The Distance From Me To You is described as a romance turned thriller.

The story focuses on two teens named McKenna and Sam. Both set out separately to hike the entire Appalachian Trail which spans from Main to Georgia for very different reasons. McKenna is fresh out of high school and determined to prove everyone who thinks she can’t hike the trail’s entirety wrong. Meanwhile, Sam sets out on the trailer in an effort to escape an abusive family situation.

The pair meet out on the trail where they fall in love, but the euphoria is short lived. After accidentally going off trail, both must figure out how to persevere against all odds if they have any hope of making it out alive.

In addition to starring in the upcoming adaptation, Carpenter will also serve as a producer on the project.

Sabrina Carpenter’s involvement in The Distance From Me To You marks her latest dive into the world of book-to-film adaptations.

Most recently, the Girl Meets World alum co-starred in George Tillman’s adaptation of Angie Thomas’ best-selling young adult novel, The Hate U Give.

There’s currently no word on when we can expect to see The Distance From Me To You in theaters.

That being said, fans of Sabrina Carpenter can next catch the actress starring opposite Jordan Fisher, Keiynan Lonsdale, and internet super star Liza Koshy in Netflix’s Work It.
