Nicholas Galitzine (Purple Hearts) has been tapped to star alongside Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway in Prime Video’s film The Idea of You, based on Robinne Lee’s bestselling contemporary love story of the same name, which goes into production in October.
Nicholas Galitzine will play Hayes Campbell — the 24-year-old lead singer of the “hottest boy band on the planet,” August Moon — who has been speculated by fans of Robinne Lee’s bestselling debut novel to be inspired by Harry Styles.
The film follows Hathaway’s Sophie, who saves the day after her ex-husband Dan (who left her for a younger woman) cancels his Coachella trip with their 15-year-old daughter. When she decides to brave the crowds and desert heat to take her daughter to the music festival, Sophie meets Hayes (Galitzine), and the 40-year-old’s life really heats up.
“The Idea of You” will be directed by Michael Showalter (“The Big Sick,” “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” “The Dropout”), from a script by Jennifer Westfeldt, who will also executive produce. The Amazon Original movie is produced by Oscar winner Cathy Shulman (via her Welle Entertainment label), joined by Gabrielle Union (for her I’ll Have Another banner), Hathaway (via her Somewhere Pictures label), Lee, Eric Hayes, Showalter and Jordana Mollick. I’ll Have Another’s Kian Gass will also executive produce.
