The as-of-yet untitled film will be written by Richard LaGravenese, who has previously worked as a screenwriter on The Fisher King, The Bridges of Madison County, and more. Carrie Solomon — who is currently working on the recently announced Ocean’s 11 prequel film with Margot Robbie — will co-write the film.

Information on the upcoming film is being kept under wraps, although The Hollywood Reporter notes that the film will see a “surprising romance kick off comic consequences for a young woman, her mother, and her movie star boss.” The untitled rom-com will be produced by Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum, and Alyssa Altman, and will reportedly begin production later this summer in Atlanta.
