Last year Sam Claflin appeared in Snow White And The Huntman, while Lily Collins was in rival fairy tale movie Mirror Mirror. However working on competing Snow White tales hasn’t made them enemies as Deadline reports that they’re teaming up for the romantic comedy, Love Rosie.
The film is based on a novel by Cecila Aherne (P.S. I Love You), which has been known as Where Rainbows End, Rosie Dunne, or Love, Rosie. Collins and Claflin will be Rosie and Alex, two Irish best friends who plan to move to the US together for college. However, Rosie gets pregnant after a wild fling with a popular schoolmate, which leads to the duo taking very different paths. They never lose touch thanks to lively e-mails, notes and letters.
Juliette Towhidi (Calendar Girls) is on screenplay duty, with German director Christian Ditter set to make his English-language debut with the movie. Shooting will start in May.
