AceShowbiz - First look at upcoming romantic movie "Midnight Sun" has been unleashed in the form of photos. Released just in time for the solar eclipse, the pictures feature %cBella Thorne% and %cPatrick Schwarzenegger% who are playing love interests in the movie which is based on 2006's Japanese film "Taiyo no Uta" starring %cYUI%.
The new romantic film follows 17-year-old Katie Price (Bella), sheltered since childhood with a life-threatening sensitivity to sunlight. One night, she meets Charlie (Patrick), an ex-high school all-star athlete, whom she has secretly admired for years. She hides her condition from him as they fall in love with each other.
As seen in the first-look pics, Katie can only spend her time outside once the sun sets. She and Charlie are seen taking a romantic late night dip in the pool in one photo, looking at each other sweetly. Another photo shows the couple snuggling up in a blanket, while the last pic finds them seemingly looking up at the stars.
"Midnight Sun" is directed by Scott Speer, who is also best known for directing music videos like %cParis Hilton%'s "Nothing in This World" and %cBlake Shelton%'s "She Wouldn't Be Gone". Written by Eric Kirsten, the film is scheduled to hit theaters across the nation next year on January 26. It also stars %cRob Riggle% as Katie's father named Jack and %cQuinn Shephard% as Morgan.
This is the first leading role for Patrick Schwarzenegger, who is the son of %cArnold Schwarzenegger% and Maria Shriver. He appeared on "Scream Queens" as Chad's (%cGlen Powell%) younger brother, Thad. He recently starred in Matt Ogens' coming-of-age thriller "Go North" alongside %cJacob Lofland% and %cSophie Kennedy Clark%.
His other credits include 2012's "Stuck in Love" starring %cLily Collins%, 2013's comedy film "Grown Ups 2", 2015's "Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse" starring %cTye Sheridan%, and last year's "Dear Eleanor" starring %cIsabelle Fuhrman% and %cJessica Alba%.
