Fanfiction writer, Anna Todd, has had some crazy success with her book After, which is based on the band, One Direction. The breakthrough writer not only got a half a million dollar book deal, but is now getting her book adapted into a movie. 1D fans rejoice!
The story is about a romance between band member Harry and a girl named Tessa. Tessa has a boyfriend she loves until she moves away to college and meets “Hardin” who is based on Harry. As much as she tries to resist him, she falls deeper and deep in love. The book brings up a lot of questions of lust vs. love, and what it means to have the perfect boyfriend.
Lead actor, Daniel Sharman, has already racked up a huge following because of his role in the upcoming movie. His Instagram page is swamped with fanatical 1D fans that simply cannot get enough of him. You can see his Instagram here:
There has not been an official release date set for this movie but we can probably expect a late 2017 or early 2018 release. Until then 1D fans will have to settle for Instagram updates and rereading After as many times as they possibly can.
