The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev has joined the team of Netflix’s newest movie.
Dobrev will plat in a diverse romantic comedy called ‘Love Hard’, made by The Babysitter: Killer Queen’s McG and Mary Viola (The DUFF), via Deadline.
‘Love Hard’ take Dobrev as a lovelorn Los Angeles lass who goes to the East Coast to surprise a guy she met on a dating app! But she’s in for a dirty Christmas surprise…
Nina’s character finds out she’s been catfished and the real guy in the pictures actually lives in her hometown. Her catfish offers to help her win over her crush – but only if she poses his as his girlfriend to meet his family!
The team of ‘Love Hard’ will include Silicon Valley star Jimmy O Yang as the catfish, while ‘Riverdale’ star Charles Melton has been cast as the object of Dobrev’s affection.
‘Love Hard’ has been written by Danny Mackey and former literary agent Rebecca Ewing, and will be directed by Hernán Jiménez (Elsewhere).
Nina Dobrev also recently said that she will make her TV comeback as star and executive producer in ‘Woman 99’, about a woman on a quest to get her sister out of an asylum.
“Bringing Woman 99 to life with Bruna [Papandrea], Casey [Haver], Janice [Park] and Endeavor Content has been a dream come true,” Nina said, per TVLine. “It’s so important to tell women’s stories written by women, with women, for women.
“Unfortunately history continues to repeat itself, and ‘Woman 99’ explores themes of mental illness, societal inequality and injustice that make this cautionary tale feel hauntingly relevant even centuries after the story takes place.”
