The Kissing Booth x Riverdale crossover you've always wanted has arrived.

Ever since starring in Netflix's The Kissing Booth as Noah Flynn alongside Joey King and Joel Courtney, Jacob Elordi has become the internet's new boyfriend and Hollywood's new favourite star.

The 21-year old actor has been snagging roles left right and centre recently, including a part in HBO show Euphoria and upcoming movie The Mortuary Collection. He's also got a role in 2 Hearts in which he'll star in alongside Riverdale's very own Polly Cooper, Tiera Skovbye.

The film is currently being shot in Vancouver (time for a cheeky Riverdale cameo, Jacob?) and the pair have been sharing snaps of their work-days on Instagram.

2 Hearts is based on the novel "All My Tomorrows: A Story of Tragedy, Transplant and Hope" by Eric Gregory. Jacob will play Chris and Tiera will play Sam, Chris' girlfriend.

The book is based on the real life story of Chris Graham, a nineteen-year-old Freshman at Loyola University New Orleans who collapsed and died of an aneurysm with no warning. Five people who had been near death lived to see another day because they received Chris’s organs.

The story is written by Chris' father Eric, who wrote the book to chronicle the miracle of science and how meeting these recipients of his son’s organs filled a special need in their hearts that few outside the organ donation community can understand.

No other details have been released about the film so far but it sounds like it's going to be a heartwarming story.
