Sony Pictures Entertainment has closed a deal with Nancy Meyers to direct an untitled film to be produced by Meyers and Matt Tolmach, it was announced today by Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures, and Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio. Meyers rewrote a screenplay that was originally written by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber.
In the new film, the life of an American young woman gets turned upside down when she begins dating a very unlikely young man. The complexities that follow are bigger than both of them. The comedy is set entirely in the UK and the film will have an all-British cast with the exception of the yet-to-be-named female lead.
“We are thrilled with the way this project has turned out and we’re especially excited that Nancy intends to make it her next film," says Belgrad. "This is the kind of movie that Nancy does better than anyone else and we can’t wait to share this new movie with audiences all over the world.”
The deal returns Meyers to Columbia Pictures, where she previously made The Holiday and Something’s Gotta Give.
