August 11, 2022 0 Comments

A new behind-the-scenes photo from the upcoming adaptation of 
Red, White, and Royal Blue has arrived, showing the rehearsals for a particularly adorable scene. The film, which is currently in production with director Matthew López at the helm, was adapted by López and Ted Malawer from the bestselling 2019 novel of the same name by author Casey McQuistion. The story of 
Red, White, and Royal Blue is a swooning romance set over the backdrop of political intrigue as sparks fly between Alex (Taylor Zakhar Perez), the son of the first female United States President, and Henry (Nicholas Galitzine), the Prince of England, during Alex’s mother’s (Uma Thurman) campaign for re-election.,The project doesn’t have an official release date yet. However, it is a production of Amazon Studios (with Berlanti Productions, the company co-founded by 
Love, Simon director Greg Berlanti), so it will likely get a Prime Video streaming release either in lieu of or shortly after a theatrical run. The rest of the cast includes 
Love Victor‘s Rachel Hilson as Alex’s best friend Nora, 
Grantchester‘s Ahmed Elhaj as Henry’s best friend Percy, and – in currently unspecified roles – 
Heartstopper‘s Stephen Fry,
Alias‘ Sarah Shahi,
Nocturnal Animals‘ Ellie Bamber,
Jessica Jones‘ Aneesh Sheth,
Who Killed Sara?‘s Polo Morin,
Grace‘s Akshay Khanna, and 
Pacific Rim star Clifton Collins Jr.,Related: Netflix’s LGBTQ+ Rep Is Great (But We Can’t Ignore The Problem),This week, López took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes photo of the third week of production. The photo shows the leads rehearsing for a scene where Henry and Alex are locked in a closet during a potential security breach. Because they aren’t on location, the crew has recreated the confinement of the closet by surrounding the actors with chairs to mimic the size of the space they will be trapped in. Check out the photo below:,Click here to view the original post.,Fans of the book will recognize this scene as one of the first moments that ignite the flame between the two rival political sons. They are trapped in a supply closet while on a hospital visit that Alex has reluctantly attended with Henry while attempting to garner some good PR after a public fight between the two goes viral. Although it will still be some time before their romance comes to fruition, being trapped in such tight quarters allows them to break down the barriers between them, both literally and metaphorically.,Not only is this 
Red, White, and Royal Blue behind-the-scenes snapshot an adorable romantic moment, this photo shows that the cast is clearly getting along and having fun. Being put in such a ridiculous situation in rehearsal is allowing stars Galitzine and Perez the chance to bond in a similar way to their characters. If they manage to bring their offscreen chemistry to their roles, the film is certain to satisfy the expectations of even the most hardcore fans of the book.,Next: Best LGBTQ+ Movies On Amazon Prime Right Now,Source: Matthew López/Instagram
