Described as a “sci-fi romance,” Deadline reports today that John Boyega (Attack the Block) is set to star in The Freshening, a genre movie from director Cathy Yan (Birds of Prey).

Production is expected to get underway later this year.

Deadline details, “The project is inspired by Rachel Khong’s short story in the Paris Review, which was set in a near future where tensions over race and gender have reached a violent extreme and the U.S. government institutes a public health initiative known as ‘The Freshening’: every American receives an injection, after which everyone only sees others as the same race and gender as themselves.

“The film will chart what happens when a street drug hits the scene, promising a chance to see the world as it really is, and newly met Sam and Reese (Boyega) must decide whether to disrupt the ‘freshened’ world?”

Cathy Yan said in a statement, “It’s a dream to work with John Boyega, a singular talent whose commitment to his craft and willingness to take risks have delivered such memorable, wide-ranging performances. I know he’ll bring incredible depth and nuance to Reese. I’m thrilled he’s on for this wild ride.”

The Freshening comes from producers FilmNation Entertainment, Ali Wong, Hyperobject Industries’ Adam McKay and Betsy Koch, and Rewild’s Cathy Yan and Ash Sarohia.
