·1-min read

EXCLUSIVE: The Kissing Booth and Euphoria star Jacob Elordi has signed on as the lead In Parallel, the Legendary film described as an action thriller with a grounded sci-fi conceit and an intense love story.

Tom Green, who directed the multi BAFTA-winning series Misfits for E4/Channel 4 in the UK, is directing the feature. BAFTA nominee Steve Lightfoot wrote the screenplay, which takes place in a world where “parallel” versions of our reality are accessible, though unknown to most – and to visit them is illegal.
