Nancy Meyers heads to Netflix for next film

Two of the most formidable forces in modern entertainment are finally teaming up: Nancy Meyers is heading to Netflix for her next film.
Meyers, the writer, director and producer of The Parent Trap, Something’s Gotta Give, The Holiday, It’s Complicated and The Intern – and the writer and producer of Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride Part II – is a familiar name to film fans worldwide, with The Holiday regularly proving a popular choice on Netflix and other platforms around Christmas. Now, Meyers is getting into a relationship with Netflix proper and will write, direct and produce a new feature film for the streamer.
This isn’t the first time round for the pair: Meyers and Netflix partnered in 2020 to release the short film Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) on Netflix social channels, bringing together the cast of Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride Part II as well as Robert De Niro, Florence Pugh and Ben Platt for a Banks family reunion that benefited World Central Kitchen.
More details on the film are currently under wraps but watch this space for more as we hear it.
