A few months ago, it was announced that "Riverdale" star and "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody" alum Cole Sprouse would be starring in the first film role of his adult career.

Now we have the first photo from that movie, "Five Feet Apart," showing Sprouse with Haley Lu Richardson ("The Edge of Seventeen," "Split.") They co-star as two teenagers who fall in love while living in a hospital together.

The movie is being directed by Justin Baldoni ("Jane The Virgin," "My Last Days"). CBS Films and Lionsgate just shared the release date, with "Five Feet Apart" scheduled to open in theaters nationwide on March 22nd, 2019.

Here's the first photo:Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse in FIVE FEET APART.
Here's the full synopsis, with details on the supporting cast:

"STELLA (Haley Lu Richardson) and WILL (Cole Sprouse) are seventeen years old and they are falling in love. The flirting in the hallways, the slipping away from adult supervision, the tension of every shared moment building toward something unknown but impossibly exciting. Complicating matters, their romance must exist within the boundaries of their lives as cystic fibrosis patients in the same hospital, where strict rules dictate that they must stay five feet apart at all times.

WILL is part of an experimental drug treatment but spends his days giving NURSE BARB (Kimberly Herbert Gregory) and DR. NOOR HAMID (Parminder Nagra) the slip. STELLA's best friend POE (Moises Arias) works to keep her spirits high while she waits on a matching organ donor. She passes the time with an obsessive adherence to her prescription regimen and by creating videos about her friends and their lives for her YouTube channel.

As the connection between WILL and STELLA intensifies, so does their willingness to defy the rules that govern every moment of their lives. Teenage attraction gets complicated when touching is not an option, but the pair quickly learns that the possibilities are endless, even if it means staying out of reach. Living on borrowed time means making every moment count, and as the challenges mount, WILL and STELLA will discover a strength within themselves and each other that transcends the distance between them."

Sounds intriguing -- also looks like it could be a heart-breaker.

Cole and his twin brother Dylan Sprouse, now 25, started in the industry together -- from "Grace Under Fire" and the Adam Sandler movie "Big Daddy" to "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody" and "The Suite Life Movie." Now they are branching out in different directions. Dylan has several projects coming up, beyond the movie "Dismissed," which came out last year.

Cole, of course, still has "Riverdale," which will return for Season 3 this fall on The CW.
