HBO Max has tapped Dove Cameron, star of the upcoming live-action Powerpuff series for The CW, and To All the Boys, P.S. I Still Love You‘s Jordan Fisher to star in the original movie Field Notes on Love.
Deadline exclusively reported that the film, based on the 2019 Jennifer E. Smith YA romance novel Ember, will be co-adapted by Smith and Gilmore Girls alum and The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers star Lauren Graham. Appian Way’s President of Production Jennifer Davisson and Phillip Watson will be producing.
Per Deadline, in Field Notes on Love,
“Hugo is dumped by his girlfriend before their long-planned romantic train trip across America. She leaves him with the tickets, which are nontransferable, booked under her name. Meanwhile, Mae is reeling from being rejected from USC’s film school. When she stumbles across Hugo’s ad for a replacement, she’s certain it’s exactly the adventure she needs to shake off her disappointment and jump-start her next film. A cross-country train trip with a complete stranger might not seem like the best idea. But to Mae and Hugo, both eager to escape their regular lives, it makes perfect sense. What starts as a convenient arrangement soon turns into something more. However, life outside the train catches up with the duo, and they must contend with not derailing their feelings for each other.”
The two former Disney stars have a professional and personal history together. Fisher recurred on Cameron’s Liv & Maddie throughout the show’s four-season run and was even a love interest. The two of them have remained close, supporting one another on social media.
Singer and actress Cameron is set to star as Bubbles Utonium in The CW’s Powerpuff Girls live-action reboot, Powerpuff. She was also Mal in Disney’s Descendants franchise, Ruby in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alongside fellow Powerpuff costar Chloe Bennett, and portrayed Amber Von Tussle in NBC’s Hairspray Live!
Fisher, meanwhile, is a singer, dancer, musician, and actor who starred as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton in Broadway’s Hamilton from 2016 to 2017, as well as Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen in 2020. He competed on and won season 25 of Dancing With the Stars, and starred in FOX’s productions of Grease LIVE! and Rent: Live. Fisher can be seen in Netflix’s To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You and Work It, and will be portraying Bart Allen in The CW’s The Flash.
