20th Century Fox has revealed the first poster for the coming-of-age film Love, Simon, starring Nick Robinson. Check it out in the gallery below! The adaptation of Becky Albertalli‘s 2015 best-selling YA novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is directed by Greg Berlanti, executive producer of The CW‘s DC Comics shows (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Riverdale, Legends of Tomorrow).
The cast includes Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) as Simon Spier, Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) as Abby Suso, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (The Land) as Nick Eisner, Katherine Langford (Thirteen Reasons Why) as Leah Burke, Logan Miller (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse) as Martin Addison and Jennifer Garner (Dallas Buyers Club) as Simon Spier’s mother. The film was written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger (This Is Us).
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is officially described as follows:
Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.
With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.
