Deadline reports that Star Wars actor John Boyega and Black Panther breakout star Letitia Wright have been cast in the lead roles in director Mike Cahill’s Hold Back the Stars. The film is based on author Katie Khan’s sci-fi romance novel of the same name.

Hold Back the Stars is described as a story that centers around a man and a woman who revisit memories of their love affair on a utopian Earth while they are trapped in the vast void of space with only 90 minutes of oxygen left. The book was published in 2017. Christy Hall is set to pen the adaptation with Shawn Levy to produce through his 21 Laps banner.

Jordan (Creed II), Danai Gurira (Godzilla vs. Kong) and Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out).
