Warner Bros. Lands Nancy Meyers Next Project – Deadline
Just days after parting ways with Netflix, Nancy Meyers next movie has found a new home as sources tell Deadline Warner Bros. is in early talks to acquire the project. Sources stress no deal is done and they are exploratory talks but add there is something to it and discussions have begun on various details about project. Deadline reported on Tuesday that the film was leaving Netflix after the studio pulled the plug due to budget concerns. Meyers moved quickly to take the project out to other studios and Warner Bros. is looking like the front-runner to land the film. Meyers will write and direct the project but what is unknown is if the all-star cast will still be joining. Meyers was in talks with Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, Owen Wilson and Michael Fassbender to star but given that was the plan when Meyers had a much larger budget it is unknown if those actors stay committed to the project.
Deadline reported on Tuesday that a big reason for plug being pulled was a budget that was exceeding $130 million with more then half of that going towards talent. It is unknown if a budget has been worked out with Warner Bros. but it can be expected that it will be much less then that original number.
The film currently titled Paris Paramount, which we were first to tell you about in April 2022, tells the story of an above-the-line filmmaking duo who reunite (begrudgingly) on set after falling in and out of love with each other.
Warner Bros. and Meyers have strong ties with the studio working with her on her last project The Intern starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. When the film left Netflix, many around town seemed to suggest that could be the likely landing spot and all signs point to it coming together.
