The holidays might have just come and gone but Netflix is already getting into the holiday spirit for next year with none other than Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s very own Kiernan Shipka.
As reported by Deadline, Kiernan Shipka will be returning to the streaming giant with a project quite different from CAOS: the film adaptation of John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson’s three-part 2008 YA novel Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances.
Based on The New York Times bestseller, the film, seemingly shortened to only Let It Snow, will go into production in the first quarter of 2019, per Variety, and is expected to drop sometime during the next winter season.
The film, as the book, will be set in the small town of Gracetown during a raging Christmas Eve snowstorm, which draws a group of high school seniors close as they “discover unexpected opportunities as well as complications that test their friendships, love lives, and aspirations for the future.”
Though Kiernan’s role is still under wraps, we know she’ll be joined by a star-studded cast that includes Legends of the Hidden Temple’s Isabela Moner, Dumplin”s Odeya Rush, and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’s Shameik Moore. Additional casting will include Jacob Batalon, Miles Robbins, Mitchell Hope, Liv Hewson, Anna Akana, and rom-com veteran Joan Cusack.
We can’t wait to see how Kiernan and co. will take on the three stories that comprise the book (“The Jubilee Express,” “A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle,” and “The Patron Saint of Pigs”), but I guess for that we’ll have to wait 11 more months for that. Sigh.
However, if you’re a John Green fan, the wait might be a little more bearable, as this isn’t the only adaption of his oeuvre in the works: His debut book, Looking for Alaska, is in the midst of casting and expected to hit Hulu at some point, and his latest novel, Turtles All the Way Down, has just found its director.
