Jaden Smith and Cara Delevingne are set to star in a new young-adult drama.

The movie is called Life in a Year, and it sounds like a total tearjerker. Per Deadline, Life in a Year follows, "a 17-year-old boy who, after learning his girlfriend is dying, sets out to give her their entire life together, in the year she has left." Which sounds like something Jaden Smith would try to do for a girlfriend even if she wasn't dying.

Life in a Year will not be Delevingne's first run in the YA movie rodeo, after her debut in the film adaptation of John Green's Paper Towns. Since semi-retiring from modeling, she's kept her IMDB page full with roles in films like Suicide Squad and Pan. For Smith, however, Life in a Year marks a major return to the big screen. He currently appears in Netflix's The Get Down but has largely shied away from film work in the aftermath of After Earth's dismal performance. He's instead since stuck mostly to musical work, boxed water entrepreneur and quixotic quote giver.

Slovenian director Mitja Okorn is attached to shepherd the project in his English-language debut, while Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews wrote the script.

Life in a Year is the latest in a trend of tragedy-themed YA movies. There was, of course, the surprisingly seminal A Walk To Remember. The latest wave, kick-started by the success of The Fault in Our Stars, has continued with recent fare like The Space Between Us and the slightly older Me Before You, and the upcoming film Everything, Everything starring Amandla Stenberg. Here's hoping this one is worth at least a guilty pleasure watch.
