Minx's Taylor Zakhar Perez & Nicholas Galitzine Cast In 'Red, White & Royal Blue' Movie Adaptation

Taylor Zakhar Perez and Nicholas Galitzine will be starring in a queer rom-com together!

The Kissing Booth and Minx actor and the Cinderella star have been cast in the lead roles for the upcoming Prime Video movie adaptation of the novel “Red, White & Royal Blue” by Case McQuiston.

Get more details inside…

Here’s a synopsis: Mexican-American character Alex Claremont-Diaz (Zakhar Perez) who, upon his mother’s election as President, is promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, brilliant―his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a long- running feud with his royal counterpart across the pond, Prince Henry (Galitzine). And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an altercation between the two, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.

Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows into something more meaningful than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could complicate his mother’s re-election campaign and upend two nations, and begs the question: Can love save the world after all?

Also set to star in the film are Clifton Collins Jr, Stephen Fry, Sarah Shahi, Rachel Hilson, Ellie Bamber, Aneesh Sheth, Polo Morin, Ahmed Elhaj and Akshay Khanna.

The film will be directed by Tony Award-winning playwright Matthew López, who also pens the script. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are producing, along with Amazon Studios.

Production is set to begin this month in the UK and will premiere on Prime Video in over 240 countries.
