Striking Vipers: Two estranged college friends (Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) reunite in later life, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever.
Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too: A lonely teenager (Angourie Rice) yearns to connect with her favourite pop star (Miley Cyrus)- whose charmed existence isn’t quite as rosy as it appears…

Ladies there is a new rom-com novel that you need to add to your reading list! The book is also set to be adapted for the big screen, starring Lucy Hale and Robbie Amell.
The book follows, Lucy Hutton, baker-of-cakes, exemplary assistant and professional ‘nice girl’, who is waging war. She’s got the whole office on her side – except for tall, dark and charmless Joshua Templeman. He’s been nothing but hostile since the moment they met and now it feels like nothing matters as much as taking him down.
Trapped together under the fluorescent lights, they become entrenched in an addictive rivalry. There’s the Staring Game, The Mirror Game and The HR Game. Lucy can’t let Joshua beat her at anything, especially when a huge promotion comes up for grabs.
Finally she’s going to destroy the man she can’t seem to get out of her office, the man she hates, the man who’s taking up far too much space in her head. If Lucy wins, she’ll be Joshua’s boss. If she loses, she’ll resign. The race is on – but the real games have only just begun . . .
