Netflix has signed a stellar cast for its upcoming romantic comedy, consisting of Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron and Joey King from The Kissing Booth.
As yet untitled, the story follows a surprising romance that sets off comic consequences for a young woman, her mother, and her movie-star boss as they grapple with the complications of love, sex, and identity.
The film was recently approved and will shoot later this year, according to Deadline.
The screenplay is by Richard LaGravenese (My Life with Liberace) and Carrie Solomon. LaGravenese is also directing the feature film.
Produced by Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Alyssa Altman. Netflix acquired Solomon’s script in 2022, luring in all three lead actors.
There is still no premiere date for the Netflix romantic comedy.
Nicole Kidman cut from tribute to Tom Cruise career at Cannes
Last Wednesday, the 18th, the Cannes Film Festival prepared and projected a montage in honor of the life and work of Tom Cruise, but left out an important element of his history: Nicole Kidman.
According to the Variety website, the video had about 10 minutes of highlights from the life of Tom Cruise, 59, who was a special guest at the event to receive the honor during the opening week of his new film, Top Gun: Maverick.
Nicole Kidman missing from Tom Cruise’s career highlights Cannes montage, according to reports
The three films that Cruise and Kidman made together (Days of Thunder, A Dream Distant and Eyes Wide Shut) were featured in the video, but all of Kidman’s participation was cut, even though they were together at the time the films were filmed.
And it seems that Tom Cruise noticed the cut since, according to Variety, he did not fail to mention her in the masterclass event that took place after the video was shown, when he talked about Eyes Wide Shut and that, in this project, Kubrick, Nic and him worked together to find the right tone for the story.
Cruise and Kidman were married in 1990 and the actor filed for divorce in 2001.
However, Kidman seems reluctant to talk about her ex: in an interview with New York Magazine in 2018, Kidman said talking about her marriage to Cruise because “it almost seems disrespectful” to her current husband, Keith Urban, with whom she has been married since 2006 and have two children together.
