To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han is set to become the next biggest chick flick because your fave YA novel is finally being made into a movie. Awesomeness Films recently announced some of the film's core cast members, including X-Men: Apocalypse actress Lana Condor and Sex and the City actor John Corbett. Directed by Susan Johnson and written by Sofia Alvarez, the highly-anticipated movie has already begun filming in Vancouver.

On Friday, Han shared a note with her Twitter followers announcing the movie.

For those of you who've never read the novel (which I wholeheartedly recommend!), To All the Boys is far from average. Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Covey (Condor) has a major problem: She's written love letters over the years to every guy she's liked and kept the letters stashed in a box at home. The box goes missing and each of the letters ends up in the hands of a boy Lara Jean formerly had feelings for. It's a whole mess, but damn is it charming.

Alongside Corbett, who'll play Lara Jean’s father, Anna Cathcart of Descendants 2 will take on the role of Lara Jean's younger sister, Kitty. The Fosters' Noah Centineo will play Peter, a popular boy who receives one of Lara Jean’s love letters, and Israel Broussard from Happy Death Day will be Lara Jean’s crush, Josh.

Pretty Little Liars actress Janel Parrish has also secured a role in the film as Lara Jean’s older sister, Margot. The Covey sisters have already bonded—Parrish tweeted this pic earlier this week. Too cute!

The Song girls have also gotten sushi together.

Jenny Han has expressed her support for Condor’s casting as Lara Jean because of her Asian ethnicity. And in an email to Seventeen.com, Han wrote, “Janel was a fan favorite on Pretty Little Liars and I feel so lucky to have her—not only as an actress but as a person."

"She is definitely the big sis of the group and every time I saw her interact with Lana and Anna, she was so lovely and generous with her time and her experience as an Asian American woman in the film industry,” Han said. “It's so important to have mentors, people who you can go to for advice, who know how to navigate the waters. I can already tell that Janel will be that for Lana and Anna."

Jenny also shared a super cute photo of Lara Jean and Peter.

Can we just have a release date already??
