Scream Queens star Emma Roberts and The Knick’s Michael Angarano have wrapped starring turns in the romantic comedy In a Relationship.

Dree Hemingway and The OA breakout Patrick Gibson also star in the indie, which Sam Boyd wrote and directed.

The project is based on a short film with the same name that Boyd also wrote and helmed and which starred Dakota Johnson. It garnered more than 800,000 views after premiering on Vogue’s digital channel in 2015 and followed two couples who find themselves in opposite stages of love.

Jay Ellis, Janet Montgomery, Greta Lee, Gayle Rankin, Sasha Spielberg, Andre Hyland, Domo Genesis, Luka Jones and Melora Walters round out the cast.

“In my relationship and in my friends’ relationships, the problems that arise are usually simple: We love each other but I’m me, and you’re you,” said Boyd. “It was important to me to make a film about the things that really come between young people — what they really fight about and what they’re really afraid of.”

Boyd is producing with Jorge Garcia Castro, David Hunter and Ross Putman alongside 2 Friends Media founders Sergio Cortes Gomez and Andres Icaza Ballesteros.

Roberts is an executive producer, as is Karah Preiss. David Sweeney is a co-exec producer.

CAA packaged the film and is repping sales.

Roberts last starred in the thriller Nerve with James Franco, and she has several movies in the can, including The Billionaire Boys Club with Taron Egerton. The actress is repped by CAA and Sweeney Entertainment.
