Patrick Schwarzenegger, son of Arnie, has hit the headlines recently not so much for his acting career but for dating and splitting up with Miley Cyrus.

Patrick is close friends with 17-year-old actress Bella Thorne and denies rumors of romance with her. However, the two are to play lovers in a new movie called Midnight Sun.

The movie is based on a 2006 Japanese film of the same name and focuses on a romance between two 17 year olds: Charlie, played by Patrick, and Katie, played by Bella. Katie suffers from a rare disease that makes her unable to be exposed to sunlight. She falls for Charlie and they embark on a summer adventure together.

Bella is a singer, model and actress best known for appearing in TV series My Own Worst Enemy and Shake It Up. On Sunday she graced the red carpet at the Much Music Video Awards, wearing a vibrant red dress, and is all set to co host the MTV Fandom Awards ceremony on July 9.

Bella also has many more projects on the horizon, including appearing in upcoming horror Amityville:The Reawakening.

As well as being an actor Patrick is a model and entrepreneur. He has appeared in Ariana Grande’s music video Right There and his biggest movie role to date is as a frat boy in Grown Ups 2.

Although the release date for Midnight Sun is yet to be scheduled, Patrick’s fans can also look forward to the October release of Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (formerly titled Scouts vs Zombies), which is a forthcoming horror comedy starring Tye Sheridan and Logan Miller.

Midnight Sun is directed by Scott Spears, of Horrors of War fame.
