Sierra Burgess is a Loser not even on Netflix yet, but netizens are already freaking out for the new film by Shannon Purser (Stranger Things) and Noah Centineo (For All the Boys I’ve Loved Before). Faced with this, Lindsey Beer, screenwriter of the plot, released the information that fans can already help in the creation of a possible sequence that would directly affect Noah’s character.
In the film, Noah plays Jamey, a boy who falls in love with Sierra Burgess (played by Shannon) just by talking to her on the phone, without meeting her in real life, while she impersonates the most popular girl in high school just to win her heart. Very current premise, considering the way text messages took over our communication.
However, when a fan decided to create a Twitter account dedicated to Jamey, she noticed that the character had no last name! When contacting Lindsey Beer, still on the social network, the screenwriter confessed: “I never gave Jamey a last name!”
She also reveals that if there is a sequel, fans can choose his surname: “But if fans vote for a surname, we will use the name voted on in the sequel, if @netflix gives us one!”
She also publishes short instructions to be followed: “First step: vote. Second step: harass @netflix for a sequel!”
Actress Shannon also tweeted about the challenge: “When Sierra Burgess leaves, you can vote to give Jamey, the @noahcent character, a surname that will be used in the sequel !! (If @netflix gives us one).” Noah seems to have liked the idea, giving Shannon a message RT.
With the hype still high for his character Peter Kavinsky in For All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, most of the suggestions involve “James Kavinsky” or even something funnier, like “Jamey Woah Woah Woah”, taking into account his iconic phrase in the first film, but there are also fans who are really committed to the idea of giving him a surname, citing Cooper and Sinclaire, for example.
As for the sequence of the film, there is still nothing certain, but it is too early to talk about it, as Sierra Burgess is a Loser has not even made it to the Netflix catalog. The screenwriter comments, however, that For All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, it certainly should win a sequel: “It was written on tablets, transmitted from heaven before man wandered this earth.
Sierra Burgess arrives on Netflix on September 7. Read more about the film to prepare for its release.
