Hallelujah! Our prayers have been answered, after a few years spent in a romcom slump we've finally been given a little respite. Nancy Meyers, the queen of the warm and fuzzy romantic comedy is back. And frankly, we've never needed to be nestled up in her cosy merino wool roll necks more than now.
According to Deadline, Meyers has made a deal to write, direct and produce a new film for Netflix. News that honestly couldn't be more welcome, after all we can only watch Somethings Gotta Give so many times. The latter aside, Meyers has clocked up a number of successful box office hits over the years including The Parent Trap, The Holiday, It’s Complicated, What Women Want, and writing/producing Father of the Bride and its sequel. The most recent film she wrote, directed and produced was the 2015 Anne Hathaway-Robert De Niro starrer The Intern.

What do we know so far?
The deal was made after Meyers and Netflix partnered in 2020 to release Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) a short film released on Netflix social channels, bringing back the cast of Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride Part II. A relationship was spawned from that experience, and thus her next idea was already in the pipeline and a deal was made.
What can we expect from the new Nancy Meyers film?
While no title or logline has been given so far, sources describe it as an ensemble comedy, which if we know Meyers can only mean great things. Her movies are never shy of sourcing an array of Hollywood heavy weights that bring just the right amount of light, escapist relief. We'll be sure to keep you updated with any new developments as the project progresses. But as for now, it's time to get our Pinterest mood boards out again, we've been meaning to add some new linen sofas to our imaginary coastal beach house on the Hamptons. Long live the set design queen!
