Andrew Garfield and Florence Pugh sent the internet into a frenzy after their appearance together at the 2023 Oscars on March 12. Their undeniable chemistry onstage sparked a wave of social media posts begging for the two to star in a romantic comedy together, and now, POPSUGAR can confirm that dream is becoming a reality with the announcement of their upcoming film, “We Live in Time.”
“Pls the way Florence Pugh walked in holding on to Andrew Garfield with that music in the background is so royalty,” one Twitter user captioned a video of the two walking onto the stage to present the awards for best adapted screenplay and best original screenplay. Another user began fan-casting them in an entire multiverse of romantic comedies. “I don’t care what the plot is…but Elizabeth Olsen, Pedro Pascal, Florence Pugh, AND Andrew Garfield in a movie together,” they wrote alongside two photos of the aforementioned celebrities. “It could be MY multiverse of madness.”
The “Wonder” star is already slated to make three additional feature film appearances, including Zach Braff’s “A Good Person,” Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer,” and “Dune: Part 2,” scheduled for release in October. Garfield has also appeared in “Under the Banner of Heaven,” “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” and “Tick, Tick . . . Boom!”
The upcoming romantic comedy will be written by British playwright Nick Payne and directed by John Crowley, who previously worked on “The Goldfinch” (2019) and “Brooklyn” (2015). Details about the plot are being kept under wraps, but Deadline adds that the movie is described as a “funny, deeply moving and immersive love story.”
Pugh and Garfield will star opposite each other as lovers in the film, and filming is scheduled to begin later this year. No additional cast members have been announced. StudioCanal has not announced an official release date for “We Live in Time,” but fans are sure to be excited to see Pugh and Garfield’s electric chemistry onscreen.
