The project will be the directorial debut of Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, creator of MTV's 'Sweet/Vicious.'
Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez has signed on to star in and produce Someone Great, a romantic comedy that Jennifer Kaytin Robinson is helming for Netflix.
Robinson is the creator of the MTV show Sweet/Vicious. Someone Great is serving as her directorial debut.
Paul Feig and Jessie Henderson of Feigco are producing the movie, as are Anthony Bregman and Peter Cron of Likely Story. Rodriguez will produce via her shingle I Can and I Will Productions.
Written by Robinson, Someone Great centers on a woman who, after a heart-wrenching break-up, decides to seek adventure in New York City with her two best friends before she moves across the country for her dream job. The story is described as being about loss, growing up and, above all, the everlasting bond of female friendships.
The movie is eyeing an April production start.
Feigco’s Dan Magnante, Likely Story’s Stefanie Azpiazu and Robinson are executive producing. Emily Gipson of I Can and I Will is co-producing.
Rodriguez has won a Golden Globe for her work on The CW’s Jane the Virgin, which is now in its fourth season. She currently is on the big screen opposite Natalie Portman in Annihilation, the latest sci-fi project from Alex Garland.
Rodriguez is repped by CAA and Jackoway, Tyerman.
