Josh O'Connor & Paul Mescal To Star in Gay Romance 'The History of Sound'

Josh O’Connor and Paul Mescal are teaming up for a brand new movie.

The two stars are set to star in The History of Sound, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The site says that the film will be directed by Oliver Hermanus, and adapted by Ben Shattuck from his own Pushcart Prize-winning short story of the same name.

The story follows two young men, Lionel (Mescal) and David (O’Connor), who, during the WWI period, set out to record the lives, voices and music of their countrymen. In this snatched, short-lived moment in their young lives, and while discovering the epic sweep of the USA, both men are deeply changed.

“I instantly fell in love with Ben Shattuck’s flawlessly beautiful short story and knew I had to be involved in its journey to the screen,” Oliver shared in a statement. “Paul and Josh are two of the most promising actors of their generation who will share with us deeply soulful performances.”

He added, “This is an unexpected love story that needs to be told — it is a journey through the life of America, across the 20th century and the traditions of American folk music, all seen through the bond between two men immersed in the history of sound. This undeniably powerful story will certainly resonate with audiences the world over.”

Josh just recently won an Emmy for playing Prince Charles on The Crown.
