The film, which is due to begin shooting in Topanga, California later this month, is "set in a dystopian society where the state has the power to determine who can and cannot father children". It follows four men as they attend a government-sanctioned retreat in the remote mountains of California where they "must prove to themselves - and each other - that they have what it takes to become fathers".

Miranda's followers were overjoyed and quickly rushed to the comment section on the post to share in the excitement. One said: "You and Yuriy together again. It will be fantastic." Another added: "I'm totally in!!!! Super excited for you two," while a third simply wrote: "I can't wait!!"

Other followers, however, couldn't help but wonder what the new role means for Miranda's role on Chicago Fire. The actress has been absent for much of season ten, and many fans are concerned that she could soon bow out like co-star Jesse Spencer.

However, fans need not worry too much. In a recent interview, Chicago Fire showrunner Derek Haas confirmed that viewers will see Miranda's character back on screens "before the end of this calendar year", meaning that she will definitely be part of the show's first-ever festive episode.
