Gearing up for an exciting new project, Sam Claflin and Lily Collins have signed on to star in Constantin Film’s forthcoming feature “Love, Rosie.”

Directed by Christian Ditter and written by Juliette Towhidi, the flick will be based on Cecelia Ahern’s bestselling novel “Where Rainbows End.”

Per the synopsis, “Rosie Dunne and her best friend Alex take a leap of faith, both on life and on each other, when they decide to go to America together to attend University.”

“But fate has other plans for Rosie who discovers that she is pregnant after a crazy night out with the most popular boy in school. She encourages Alex to go without her, hopeful that she’ll catch up with him eventually.”

“Over the next twelve years, their lives change dramatically but the undeniable connection remains. At the back of Rosie's mind is always the question, what if fortune had taken another turn and they were meant to be more than just good friends. When ultimately presented with the opportunity, will they gamble everything for the chance to be together?”

Studio honcho David Garrett told press, "We anticipate buyers will appreciate the fusion of a first class script by Juliette from Cecelia's wonderful book, a visionary director in Christian, and two gifted rising young stars in Lily and Sam."
