Her character Ana is an aspiring art aficionado and high-end auction house trainee, who finds herself stepping into her dream job, through a series of unexpected circumstances. Archie portrays William.

Here’s a synopsis: When aspiring art intern Ana (Mendes) is invited on a last-minute work trip to London by her brilliant but intimidating super boss, she meets a handsome and wealthy man (Renaux) on the plane. Set in both London and New York City, the film is a playful, heartfelt romantic comedy that chronicles the trials and tribulations of balancing work, romance and following your dreams.

Camila‘s BFF Rachel Matthews is also executive producing. The friends developed the project alongside writers Christine Lenig, Justin Matthews & Luke Roberts, director Carlson Young and producers Bill Bindley and Mike Karz for Gulfstream Pictures, Lena Roklin for Luber Roklin Entertainment, Piers Tempest for Tempo Productions, Karl Hall, Josie Rosen and Matt Williams.

“We are thrilled to be working with the enormously talented Camila Mendes, Carlson Young and Archie Renaux, as they pull back the curtain on the art world in this fun and engaging romantic comedy,” Gulfstream’s Mike Karz and Bill Bindley shared in a statement.

Gulfstream is also financing the upcoming movies The Other Zoey, which also stars Archie with Josephine Langford and Drew Starkey, as well as One Fast Move, which stars Camila‘s Riverdale castmate KJ Apa.

More casting on Upgraded will be revealed in the coming weeks.
