Sam Claflin, Lily Collins To “Love, Rosie”

Sam Claflin (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) and Lily Collins (“Mirror Mirror,” “Abduction”) are set to team for the Christian Ditter-directed rom-com “Love, Rosie” at Constantin Film.

The story follows Rosie Dunne (Collins), whose plans to attend university in the U.S. with her best friend (Claflin) go awry when she discovers she is pregnant after a night out with the most popular boy in school.

Over twelve years the friends’ connection remains despite the changes in their lives. The story is based on the novel “Where Rainbows End” by author Cecelia Ahern (“P.S. I Love You”).

Juliette Towhidi (“Calendar Girls”) adapted the script, and Robert Kulzer and Simon Brooks are set to produce. Shooting kicks off in May.
