Sofia Carson is pulling double-duty…
The 28-year-old Colombian American actress & singer won’t only star in Netflix’s YA romance Purple Hearts; she’ll also co-write and perform some of the film’s songs.
Grammy nominee Justin Tranter will write and produce the film’s original songs, with Carson co-writing and performing additional music.
Purple Hearts is based on the novel of the same name by Tess Wakefield.
It tells the story of aspiring singer-songwriter Cassie (Carson) and marine Luke (Nicholas Galitzine), who in spite of their many differences and against all odds, fall hopelessly in love.
Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum is directing the film from a script by Tony Award nominee Kyle Jarrow and Liz Garcia, with production currently underway in California.
Netflix acquired global rights to Purple Hearts from Alloy back in August.
