Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes are spending the holidays with Netflix.

The duo will star in A Castle for Christmas, a new romantic comedy from the streamer. The story follows a famed American author, Sophie, who travels to Scotland and finds herself wanting to buy a castle, but the prickly owner, a Scottish Duke named Myles, is reluctant to sell to a foreigner. Working to find a compromise, the pair constantly butt heads, but along the way they just may find more than they bargained for.

Neal Dobrofsky and Tippi Dobrofsky, the scripters behind previous Netflix rom-com Holiday in the Wild, wrote the screenplay with Ally Carter and Kim Beyer-Johnson.

Brad Krevoy will produce, with Amanda Phillips Atkins, Steven McGlothen, Steve Berman, Katrina Stagner and Shields executive producing.
