Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz And Owen Wilson In Talks For Nancy Meyers' New Rom-Com.


Scarlett Johansson, PenÚlope Cruz, Michael Fassbender and Owen Wilson are in talks to star in the big-budget Netflix comedy marking Nancy Meyers’ return to directing.

After not directing a movie since 2015’s The Intern, the filmmaker known for her upscale romantic comedies is back with a project that is attracting A-list talent. Scarlett Johansson is circling the lead role in Meyers' upcoming feature for Netflix, with PenÚlope Cruz, Owen Wilson and Michael Fassbender also eying the project.

Nancy Meyers will write, direct and produce the movie, which is currently known as Paris Paramount and will follow a talented young writer/director who falls in love with a producer, with the pair ending up making several successful films before calling it quits romantically and professionally. The two are forced back together, however, when a great new project arises, and they find themselves teamed up again and having to deal with high stakes and volatile stars.

Meyers' Netflix project was announced early last year; at one point, Jennifer Lawrence was slated to star, but she has since departed the project. It will be Meyers' first directorial role since 2015's The Intern. She wrote a successful string of comedies in the '80s and '90s, including Private Benjamin, Baby Boom, and both Father of the Bride films, before helming 1998's The Parent Trap. She followed it up with a series of upscale rom-coms featuring big stars and incredible interior design, including Something's Gotta Give, The Holiday, and It's Complicated.
