Be still our beating hearts!

Paul Mescal is set to return to our screens and this time he’s bringing Andrew Scott along with him. Yes, the hot priest from Fleabag.

Of course, it’s not the first time that the pair have shared the screen together.

RTÉ’s 2020 Comic Relief video saw Paul and his Normal People co-star Daisy Edgar-Jones enter the Fleabag confessional booth in a short skit.

And the pair are actually friends as they both were spotted at Glastonbury together.

Now, they are set to reunite on the big screen for an upcoming film adaptation of Taichi Yamada’s Strangers.

The film follows Andrew’s character, screenwriter Adam, as he experiences a chance encounter with his mysterious neighbour Harry, played by Paul Mescal on a quiet night in London.

However, things take a bizarre turn when Adam is brought back to his childhood home where he finds his late parents alive and well…although they haven’t aged a day.

The Crown’s Claire Foy and Rocketman’s Jamie Bell play the role of Adam’s parents.

Unfortunately, we don’t have a release date just yet but we’re keeping our eyes peeled for one!

Paul has plenty of upcoming projects aside from this year he has two flicks coming out Aftersun and God’s Creatures. He will also appear in the musical drama Carmen and Foe alongside Saoirse Ronan.

Meanwhile, Andrew has an eight-episode series called Ripley set to come out soon and a film called Catherine, Called Birdy.

Until then, we’re going to rewatch Normal People!
