The movie also stars Daisy Edgar-Jones, Will Poulter, and Sasha Calle.

Euphoria’s Jacob Elordi and Babylon’s Diego Calva are set to play lovers in a new drama with a cast packed with young stars.

Deadline reports that Daniel Minahan’s upcoming adaptation of Shannon Pufahl’s novel On Swift Horses has cast Elordi, Calva, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Will Poulter, and Sasha Calle to star in the film, with a script adapted by Bryce Kass.

The movie follows newlyweds Muriel (Edgar-Jones) and Lee (Poulter) who are “beginning a bright new life when he returns from the Korean War. However, this newfound stability is upended by the arrival of Lee’s charismatic younger brother, Julius (Elordi), a wayward gambler with a secret.”

“A dangerous love triangle is quickly formed, as the three vow to start a new life together in California, but their bid for the American Dream is blown apart when Julius disappears and heads for Las Vegas instead,” the description continues. “Muriel embarks on a secret life of her own, gambling on racehorses and discovering a love she never thought possible.”

Film Updates reports that when Julius finds himself in Las Vegas, he meets Henry (Calva), a blackjack artist, and says “Henry and Julius’ love burns in the shadows until Henry is forced to flee.”

According to a tweet from Pop Crave, Calva has been quoted as saying, "I don't know if I can say this, but we are going to have pretty hot scenes in this movie." We can't wait!

Elordi is currently starring in Euphoria as Nate Jacobs. Next up, he stars in Emerald Fennell’s upcoming thriller Saltburn, and then will play Elvis Presley in the film Priscilla opposite Cailee Spaeny.

After receiving a Golden Globe nomination for starring in Babylon, Calva is one of Hollywood’s most exciting actors.
