Meyers is arguably the top female director currently working in Hollywood and is known for her adult-oriented relationship comedies such as Something’s Gotta Give and The Holiday, both made for Sony, and Universal’s It’s Complicated. Her movies also are known for their immaculate Architectural Digest sense of style

According to the studio, the new project centers on an American woman whose life gets turned upside down when she begins dating a younger Brit.

The comedy will be set entirely in the U.K., and the plan is to have an all-British cast other than the female lead.

“This is the kind of movie that Nancy does better than anyone else,” Columbia Pictures president Doug Belgrad said in making the announcement.

Meyers is repped by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.
