"Challengers" star Josh O'Connor doesn't just have the looks of a leading man. He also has the talent of a producer.

As reported by Digital Spy, O'Connor is set to debut a queer coming-of-age comedy called "Bonus Track" next month, June 1, on British streamer Sky Cinema. The film will mark O'Connor's first feature film as an executive producer, and, from the looks of the trailer, it will be the perfect kick off for Pride Month.

Based on an original idea by Connor, with a script written by Mike Gilbert, the film follows a 16-year-old George, played by Joe Anders, who has dreams of becoming a musical star despite being a social and academic failure.

His life changes quickly when he meets Max (Samuel Small), who happens to be the son of a famous musical duo and happens to take an interest in George's music. A love affair ensues, but not without some self-doubt and personal revelations.

Directed by Julia Jackman, "Bonus Track" also stars Alison Sudol, Jack Davenport, Susan Wokoma, and Ray Panthaki, and even O'Connor pops up for a cameo in the film.

And did we mention out music genius Olly Alexander composed an original song for the movie? See the trailer below.
