Constantin Film begins production on LOVE, ROSIE

Toronto, Canada, May 15th, 2013 – Production began on Monday (13th May) on LOVE, ROSIE, a romantic comedy based on the bestselling book ‘Where Rainbows End’ from Irish author Cecelia Ahern (P.S.

The film stars Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Mirror Mirror) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Snow White and the Huntsman) as Rosie and Alex, best friends since school who find that life often gets in the way of love but, true love just like true friendship, never dies.
