Cannes: Rose Byrne in Talks for 'Home Again'
Hallie Meyers-Shyer is directing the movie, with her mother, Nancy Meyers, producing.
Rose Byrne is in talks to star in Home Again for director-writer Hallie Meyers-Shyer, daughter of Nancy Meyers, who is producing the comedy alongside Black Bicycle Entertainment.
Home Again tells the story of a recently separated mother of two whose new life in Los Angeles is overturned when she decides to take in three young, charismatic guys. Meyers-Shyer is set to start shooting in August in Los Angeles.
MadRiver Pictures will introduce the project to foreign buyers at the Cannes film market. CAA represents North American rights and packaged the film.
“Hallie and Nancy make a dynamic team who effortlessly blend tough, female-driven themes with comedic scripts which tackle dramatic issues,” said Black Bicycle Entertainment’s Erika Olde, who will share a producer's credit with Meyers.
Meyers' latest directing outing was The Intern, starring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro. The movie grossed nearly $195 million in fall 2015.
Byrne is next in theaters in Universal's Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (May 20), starring opposite Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. She is represented by CAA.
Meyers-Shyer is repped by WME, while Meyers is repped by CAA.
Black Bicycle is currently in postproduction on Sacha Gervasi's November Criminals, starring Ansel Elgort and Chloe Grace Moretz, for Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions.
