Per the report, the book which is described as Wild-meets-Endless Love starts out as a romance story but quickly becomes a thriller when two teens meet and fall in love while hiking the treacherous Appalachian Trail.
Carpenter has enjoyed much success on Disney’s Girl Meets World but has also landed gigs on the big screen, namely George Tillman Jr’s The Hate U Give and the upcoming Short History of the Long Road.
Danielle Fishel, who stars in and produces Girl Meets World, will executive produce the film along with Cartel’s Stan Spry, Jeff Holland and Drew Brown.
“Danielle and I have been in love with this book for a while and we’ve found the perfect star and partner to tell this story in Sabrina,” Spry told Deadline. “She’s wildly talented and we’re so excited take this journey with her bringing this epic story to the big screen.”

The 19-year-old actress sheds her Disney image with a gritty new role as Nola, a teenage vagabond whose world is upended, forcing her to rethink the reality of the nomadic existence her father (Westworld‘s Steven Ogg) has created for her. As she makes her way to Albuquerque, New Mexico, she forges unexpected relationships, including reconnecting with her estranged mother (Maggie Siff), that may provide the roots she needs to stay in one place.
“She’s a girl trying to survive,” Carpenter tells ET, explaining that Nola is someone who has been “raised by her father in a van her whole life, so she doesn’t know how to wear makeup, she doesn’t know how to shave. She doesn’t do all the stuff that a normal 19-year-old girl would do.”
Ultimately, the part required Carpenter to dye her hair, go makeup-free and wear second-hand clothes — a complete makeover that gave the actress chills when she first saw herself in character. “I just felt like a different person,” Carpenter recalls. “I think I was able to really find Nola through that physical transformation.”
