Netflix movie Wedding Season has secured the talents of both Rizwan Manji and Ari Afsar.

The two actors are known for their roles in Schitt's Creek (Manji played Ray Butani) and Hamilton (Afsar brought Eliza Hamilton to life on stage in Chicago).

Life of Pi's Suraj Sharma and Tom & Jerry star Pallavi Sharda are already onboard the comedy (via Deadline).

Penned by Shiwani Srivastava and directed by Shanghai Noon's Tom Dey, Wedding Season centres on an Indian-American duo who pretend to date in order to survive a summer packed with weddings.

As is tradition with rom-coms, the fake couple soon find themselves falling for one another, while simultaneously struggling to balance who they are with who their parents hope they'll be.

Cameras are primed for action as production begins next month in Toronto.

In other Netflix movie news, it was confirmed earlier this month that the streaming service had acquired the gender-swapped She's All That remake.

Announcing this exciting deal, Netflix tweeted: "What is this, some sort of dork outreach program? He's All That, a gender-flipped reimagining of the 1999 teen classic, is coming to Netflix! Addison Rae and Tanner Buchanan will star in the film directed by Mark Waters and written by She's All That writer R. Lee Fleming Jr.

"Even better? The film, to be released globally on Netflix later this year, will also star original cast members Rachael Leigh Cook and Matthew Lillard."

Wedding Season should arrive on Netflix sometime next year.
