Writer/director Nancy Meyers is going across the pond for her next film. The director behind Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday, and It’s Complicated has closed a deal with Sony Pictures to direct an untitled comedy that takes place in the UK. The story centers on an American woman whose life “gets turned upside down when she begins dating a very unlikely man.” Per Deadline, the pic will feature an entirely British cast save for the female lead, and was originally written by (500) Days of Summer scribes Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter. Meyers rewrote the screenplay and will also produce alongside Matt Tolmach.
Though the premise seems simple enough, Meyers has a knack for turning out interesting character dynamics. Meyers is also attached to direct two other projects for Paramount—The Intern with Tina Fey and The Chelsea with Felicity Jones—but we haven’t heard much about those films since last spring. Though no further details are known with regards to this new untitled project, one assumes the film will have a ridiculously nice kitchen.
