Netflix a dat mana cu Reese Witherspoon pentru a produce si juca in doua comedii romantice, Your Place Or Mine si The Cactus!

Cele doua reprezinta primele proiecte comune intre dragalasa actrita si gigantul serviciu de streaming. Casa ei de productie Hello Sunshine va lucra alaturi de Aggregate Films a lui Jason Bateman si Michael Costigan pentru a produce comedia romantica Your Place Or Mine – debutul regizoral al veteranei scenariste Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, Morning Glory). Filmul, scris de McKenna, spune povestea a doi prieteni cei mai buni care decid sa isi schimbe unul altuia vietile dupa ce ea se hotaraste sa isi indeplineasca visul de o viata, in timp ce el se ofera sa aiba grija de fiul ei adolescent.

I’m the hugest Reese Witherspoon fan on earth, not just of her immense talents as an actor but also her producing skills. I couldn’t be more excited to direct this movie for Netflix, working alongside Aggregate and Hello Sunshine,” a declarat Aline Brosh McKenna.

Netflix a achizitionat drepturile de adaptare a romanului The Cactus scris de Sarah Haywood, care va fi produs de Lauren Neustadter. Bestseller-ul, publicat pe 7 mai 2019, spune povestea unei sarcini neasteptate care da peste cap viata atent organizata si planificata a unei femei de 45 de ani, dar care o duce intr-o calatorie neconventioanala catre iubire, familie si neprevazut.

We have been looking for the right feature opportunities to collaborate with Ted Sarandos, Scott Stuber and the entire team at Netflix for a while and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with them on these two romantic comedies. Both Sarah Haywood’s and Aline Brosh McKenna’s stories blend everything we love about traditional RomComs with strong, smart and determined female leads,” a declarat Reese Witherspoon.

Jason and I are thrilled to be producing Aline’s feature directorial debut with our great friends and partners at Netflix, and with a giant talent and friend like Reese and Hello Sunshine. This is the perfect home for our movie, and with the ideal creative partners to be making a sophisticated and very contemporary romantic comedy that we believe global audiences will be excited to see.” a adaugat Michael Costigan.

Scott Stuber, presedintele Netflix Films, a incheiat: “We are thrilled to work alongside our long-standing partners and friends, Jason and Michael at Aggregate on Your Place or Mine. They brought us this brilliantly funny romantic comedy from Aline that we immediately fell in love with and can’t wait to work with the Aggregate and Hello Sunshine teams on bringing it to life. Reese and her team at Hello Sunshine have made a tremendous mark on the industry and we’re excited to have found two terrific projects to collaborate with them on.
