PERFECT Addiction, the upcoming boxing romance movie based on the Wattpad book of the same name, is gearing up to begin filming, and author Claudia Tan teased the “hot” script.
Actors Ross Butler (13 Reasons Why), Kiana Madeira (Fear Street), and Matthew Noszka (Star) were recently cast as the film’s main characters.
The second book in Claudia’s trilogy, Perfect Addiction centers on successful boxing trainer Sienna Lane (Kiana), who learns her boyfriend Jax (Matthew), the reigning champion, has been cheating on her with her own sister.
She decides to get back at him and knock him down a few pegs – literally and figuratively – by training his arch-nemesis, Kayden (Ross).
Stephanie Sanditz wrote the script for the movie adaptation, which Claudia just got her hands on and teased to fans is very steamy.
On Instagram a few days ago, the author and singer shared a few photos of the script, writing alongside it: “My TBR [To Be Read] for today… and I heard it’s 🔥🔥🔥😉❤️.”
Framing the shot was a couple of boxing gloves and a copy of the book.
While reading her copy of the script, Claudia recorded a little snippet of her reaction to it, noting that it was making her “shook.”
She added to fans: “Y’all are NOT ready for this movie!”
The cast members have been doing their best to get everyone excited about the upcoming boxing romance, as well, with various posts about filming prep on social media.
SOCIAL MEDIA BUZZ
Kiana shared how excited she is to be working with everyone involved, while Ross posted a video of himself getting his luscious locks buzzed off.
“Switch flipped,” the Shazam! actor captioned a sultry snap of his final, shaved-head look.
Meanwhile, Matthew has been all about the workout prep, sharing videos of himself practicing his boxing skills for the role.
This movie is a reunion of sorts, as Castille Landon is set as the film’s director, and she previously worked with Kiana, as well as Wattpad, on After We Fell and After Ever Happy.
Constantin Film, JB Pictures, and Wattpad Webtoon Studios are the production companies behind the upcoming movie.
Perfect Addiction comes on the heels of the success of fellow Wattpad novel-to-movie adaptations, including Anna Todd’s After series and Beth Reekles’ The Kissing Booth.
