Netflix is bringing back the romcoms, and set out to bring together an A-list cast! Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron, and Joey King have been tagged as some of the stars to feature in the new rom-com pic, reports Deadline, with Behind The Candelabra writer Richard LaGravenese directing the project.

According to the news outlet, "The story is set following a surprising romance which kicks off comic consequences for a young woman, her mother and her movie star boss as they face the complications of love, sex, and identity."

The film was recently green-lit by the streaming giant and will begin shooting later this year. Joey King shared the news on her social media page on Wednesday.

The film gives Kidman a fun comedy on her upcoming slate following a year of strong dramatic turns which started with the Hulu series Nine Perfect Strangers. She followed that up with her Oscar-nominated role as Lucille Ball in Being Ricardos.

For Efron it brings him back to Netflix where he most recently played serial Killer Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. Next up for Efron is Apple’s The Greatest Beer Run Ever, Peter Farrelly’s first film since his Oscar-winning Green Book.

King remains as busy an actor as anyone out there which includes Hulu’s The Princess, which bows July 1 as well as the highly-anticipated Bullet Train. She too is also a favorite of Netflix following the success of The Kissing Booth trilogy which she stars in for the streamer.
