Brad Krevoy, who will be producing the film, officially announced the rom-com Winter Spring Summer or Fall as MPCA’s ‘robust slate’. Check out what Krevoy had to say about the project:

“We’re excited to be further diversifying MPCA’s robust slate with Winter Spring Summer or Fall. Jenna [Ortega] is enormously talented as an actor and producer, and we know both she and Percy will bring heartfelt depth to their roles, and that along with Tiffany’s experience with character, and her vision for this film, will only enhance the brilliant script from Dan.”

MPCA is known for their Netflix movies such as Lindsay Lohan’s most recent return with Falling for Christmas, and Vanessa Hudgen’s The Princess Switch trilogy. While plot details are being kept under wraps, the upcoming film follows two teens entering adulthood who meet and fall in love over winter, spring, summer, and fall. The film was teased with the description, Before Sunrise meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Seeing as the two coming-of-age films revolve around the progression of how adulthood allows the opposite characters to develop while getting to know each other’s perspective in life, it is possible that Jenna Ortega and Percy Hynes will be portraying similar roles.

There are no official announcements on the release date yet, but rest assured, EpicStream will keep you up to date on this story.
