Zoey Deutch & Glen Powell to reunite in Netflix’s Most Dangerous Game
Set It Up duo Zoey Deutch (Before I Fall) and Glen Powell (Hidden Figures) have been tapped to star in Netflix and Treehouse Pictures’ brand new romantic comedy film titled Most Dangerous Game. The upcoming film will also be written by Set It Up writer Katie Silberman which is scheduled to begin production in 2020.
“The pairing of Zoey and Glen’s undeniable spark with Katie’s razor sharp dialogue was such an important factor in the success of Set It Up and we cannot wait to build on that even more with Most Dangerous Game,” Producer Justin Nappi said. “While it was clear that audiences were clamoring for a sequel, we are excited by the thought of creating a new, distinct film that explores different romantic comedy tropes while still being anchored in everything that we loved about the first movie.”
Most Dangerous Game will also be executive produced by Deutch and Powell along with Silberman and Treehouse Pictures’ Juliet Berman and Nappi to serve as producers. Further details about the film’s plot is still being kept under wraps.
Set It Up was the first collaboration between Deutch and Powell. It premiered last June and follows the story of two overworked assistants, who team up to trick their bosses into falling in love with each other, in order to make their jobs and lives much easier. The film also starred Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels) and Taye Digs (Private Practice).
Deutch’s notable film credits include Beautiful Creatures, Vampire Academy, Dirty Grandpa, Before I Fall, The Disaster Artist and Flower. She will next be seen in the long-awaited Zombieland sequel titled Zombieland: Double Tap opposite Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin.
Powell is best known for his role as John Glenn in the award-winning biopic drama Hidden Figures starring alongside Taraji P. Henson. He will next be seen in the action sequel Top Gun: Maverick which is set for release on June 2020.
