The former Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, Jimmy O. Yang, and Riverdale star Charles Melton are set to star in the Netflix romantic-comedy film “Love Hard.” The film will be produced by McG and Mary Viola through their Wonderland banner.
The film follows an LA girl, unlucky in love, falls for an East Coast guy on a dating app, and decides to surprise him for Christmas, only to discover that she’s been catfished. But the object of her affection actually lives in the same town, and the guy who duped her offers to set them up IF she pretends to be his own girlfriend for the holidays.
Elsewhere and About Us Director Hernán Jiménez will direct the feature which is written by Danny Mackey and literary agent-turned screenwriter Rebecca Ewing.
Steven Bello will be an executive producer.
Dobrev was most recently seen in the CBS comedy series “Fam.” Her film credits include “Flatliners,” “XXX: Return of Xander Cage,” “Run This Town,” and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” She has recently also signed up to star in Series adaptation of Greer Macallister's novel “Woman 99.”
The breakout star of the HBO comedy Silicon Valley, Yang had a busy 2020 so far with Like A Boss and the Fantasy Island movie at Sony. He already has strong ties with Netflix after co-starring with Steve Carrell in the comedy series Space Force.
Melton can still be seen on the hit CW show Riverdale as Reggie, which is going into its fifth season. On the film side, he was most recently in the latest installment in the Bad Boys franchise, Bad Boys 4 Life.
