Brace yourself, because the cast of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda just got even sexier thanks to Colton Haynes.
Earlier this week, the newly-engaged Scream Queens star made the announced his involvement in the film on Twitter after a day of shooting in Atlanta. According to Epic Reads, Haynes is set to take on the role of Kevin, a college hunk who spots Simon, the film’s lead, at a local bar. DC Comics favorite and Arrow‘s very own Greg Berlanti is also expected to take the director’s chair for the film, which will be brought to the big screen by Fox 2000.
Based on author and clinical psychologist Becky Albertalli‘s coming-of-age novel of the same name, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda tells the story of Simon Spier, a closeted teen whose intimate e-mails with another boy are discovered by his jokester classmate, Martin, who threatens to expose Simon’s secret conversations with “Blue.” In order to keep his secret affairs hidden from the public eye and his friends, Simon agrees to help hook Martin up with one of his friends.

Among those attached to the film’s ensemble of promising actors are Everything, Everything‘s Nick Robinson as Simon, X-Men: Apocalypse star Alexandra Shipp as Abby, and Before I Fall hottie Logan Miller as Martin.
To say I’m elated to see Haynes in a film such as this is an understatement. Mostly because the man is fine as hell, but I’m also super excited there are so many books being made into movies these days. And while I have yet to read any YA titles as of late, I’m really interested in Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and im hoping to TBR more gay young adult fiction soon. I can’t wait!
At this time, no details have been revealed on the exact date the film is due to hit theaters, but we’ll keep all you Simon fans abreast of any more news.
