The One is one of the exciting new films set to launch sales at the Cannes Market and its cast is shaping up to be as epic as it gets. Melissa Barrera, Nicholas Hoult, and Lana Condor will play lead roles in this promising thriller, set in the world of dating reality shows.

The One centers on a young woman Taylor (Barrera), who becomes a contestant on a reality dating show in a last-ditch effort to find love. The beachfront setting, fairy-tale dates, and flowing champagne aren’t enough to make this experience enjoyable after reality starts to blur and rivalry turns into treachery.

This project hails from writer-director duo Kevin Armento and Jaki Bradley, and they can’t wait to join forces with this impressive cast.

“We’ve been dreaming up this project for years, and are thrilled to now bring it to life with our actual dream team. Nick, Melissa, Riley, and Lana are some of the most exciting talents around, and their passion for this film […] has us even more eager to make this nightmare a reality,” said the duo in a statement.

In addition to playing one of the lead roles, Hoult is also coming on board as a producer with Whitaker Lader via Dead Duck Films. Riley Keough and Gina Gammell are also producing through their production company Felix Culpa, while HanWay Films is handling worldwide sales in Cannes.
