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. in early talks is to acquire the project. Sources emphasize that no deal has been made and that they are exploratory talks, but add that something is going on and discussions have started on various details about the project. Deadline reported Tuesday that the movie was leaving Netflix after the studio pulled the plug over budget concerns. Meyers quickly moved on to take the project to other studios and Warner Bros. looks like the frontrunner to land the movie. Meyers will write and direct the project, but it’s unknown if the all-star cast will still be on it. Meyers was in talks with Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, Owen Wilson, and Michael Fassbender to star, but since that was the plan when Meyers had a much bigger budget, it’s unknown if those actors remain committed to the project.

Deadline reported Tuesday that a big reason for pulling the plug was a budget of more than $130 million, more than half of which went to talent. It is not known whether Warner Bros. a budget has been worked out, but it can be expected that it will be much lower than the original number.

The movie currently titled Paris Paramountwhich we first told you about in April 2022 tells the story of an above-the-line movie duo who are (reluctantly) reunited on set after falling in and out of love for each other.

Warner Bros. and Meyers have a strong relationship with the studio working with her on her latest project The intern with Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. When the film left Netflix, many in the city seemed to suggest it could be the likely landing site and all signs point to it coming together.
