Netflix has signed up Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron and Joey King to star in a currently untitled rom-com at the streamer.
The story is set to follow a surprising romance which kicks off comic consequences for a young woman, her mother and her movie star boss as they face the complications of love, sex, and identity. The film was recently greenlit and will shoot later this year.
‘Behind The Candelabra’ writer Richard LaGravenese will direct from a script he co-wrote alongside Carrie Solomon. Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Alyssa Altman are producing for Roth/Kirschenbaum Films.
