King previously opened up to E! News about the challenges of playing a real person, especially someone with as complicated a story as Gypsy Rose Blanchard.

This role, the way I approached her, was very much different than how I’ve approached any other role. I decided to strip away everything I thought I knew about acting, about anything, and just completely try and dive in and become someone else who’s alive,” King told E! News.

The Act is now streaming on Hulu.

‘The Kissing Booth’ Getting Netflix Sequel

Netflix said it is making a sequel to The Kissing Booth, the original film it released last year on the streaming service based on Beth Reekles’ smash self-published YA book. The Kissing Booth 2 is now in production with stars Joey King, Joel Courtney and Jacob Elordi all back.

Netflix said in December The Kissing Booth was its most-re-watched original movie of 2018, noting half of all viewers who watched it and fellow YA hit To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before re-watched them at least once. To All the Boys is also getting a sequel.

Vince Marcello (Teen Beach Movie) returns to direct Kissing Booth 2 from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jay Arnold. The Komixx Entertainment Inc pic is being produced by Marcello, Michele Weisler, Andrew Cole-Bulgina and Edward Glauser.

Reekles was 15 when she wrote the novel, which she self-published on Wattpad before Random House picked it up. It follows Elle Evans (King), a 16 year old girl who’s popular and loves to party but has never been kissed. She faces her long-term crush, her best friend’s older brother, at a kissing booth at a school carnival, launching a story that charts the ups-and-downs of teen infatuation.

No release date or plot details were forthcoming today, but Netflix did release a video announcing the sequel:
