Nancy Meyers is working on a big rom-com drama for Netflix, and a lot is already known about the upcoming project, including some exclusive news that What’s on Netflix was first out. Here’s everything we know about the untitled project with the working title of paris supreme.
He nancy meyers the movie was the first announced by Deadline it will be in development on Netflix in April 2022. At the time, the project was described as an «ensemble comedy.»
Meyers will serve as a writer, producer and director for the Netflix movie and is best known for titles like It’s complicated, soldier benjaminand Someone has to concede.

The reported budget for the film is over $100 million, with Puck News putting it at $130 million.
Of course, the budget of a Netflix movie is not comparable to the budget of a traditional movie. As Joe Russo recently explained for the gray man (which exceeded $200 million), “Netflix is obviously different than other studios, because they have acquisitions that are against budget. And you know, when you say $200 million on Netflix, that’s different than $200 million, say, on Disney.»
