Captain America's Sebastian Stan and Normal People star Daisy Edgar-Jones' new movie Fresh is headed to Disney+.

As of Thursday, January 13, Searchlight Pictures has officially acquired the worldwide rights to the eagerly anticipated thriller, which means that it'll be exclusively available to subscribers on the streaming platform shortly after its Hulu release in the US on March 4, 2022.

The film, which is set to have its world premiere at the virtual Sundance Film Festival next week, marks Mimi Cave's feature debut, and was written by Ibiza scribe Lauryn Kahn.

Described by its director as a "wildly allegorical story", it follows Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones), a young woman who, due to her frustration with dating apps, takes a chance and gives her number to an alluring stranger she meets in a grocery store one day.

After their first date, Noa is smitten with Steve (Stan) and accepts his invitation to a romantic weekend getaway. There, though, she discovers that her new beau has been hiding some pretty unusual habits.

"Fresh upends all romance tropes and boldly comments on the precarious nature of the modern dating experience," said Searchlight Presidents Matthew Greenfield and David Greenbaum. "Mimi Cave has brilliantly brought Lauryn Kahn's razor-sharp script to the screen and gives audiences something they will savor from beginning to end."
