Zoey Deutch, Glen Powell, 'Set It Up' Filmmakers Reteam for New Rom-Com (Exclusive)
And, no, it's not a sequel.
Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell are re-teaming with the filmmakers behind Set It Up for a new Netflix romantic comedy.
Tentatively titled Most Dangerous Game, the movie comes from Set It Up scribe Katie Silberman. She will produce alongside Juliet Berman and Justin Nappi of Treehouse Pictures. Along with Set It Up, Treehouse's credits also include the Michael B. Jordan starrer That Awkward Moment and Iraq war drama Sand Castle, starring Henry Cavill and Nicholas Hoult.
Most Dangerous Game will go into production in early 2020, with Deutch and Powell also on board as exec producers.
This is the latest rom-com reteaming for Netflix, which has already set sequels for The Kissing Booth and To All the Boys I've Loved Before. But, while plot details are not yet known, Most Dangerous Game will not be a follow-up to Set It Up.
"While it was clear that audiences were clamoring for a sequel, we are excited by the thought of creating a new, distinct film that explores different romantic comedy tropes while still being anchored in everything that we loved about the first movie,” said Nappi.
"It will be exciting to see Glen and Zoey do something completely different," added Berman. "We all talked about what we could do again and [Most Dangerous Game] was something that Katie brought to us that was creatively exciting as a next project and we jumped on it."
Powell, who is repped by ICM and Ziffren Brittenham, is currently filming Paramount’s Top Gun: Maverick with Tom Cruise. Deutch will next be seen in Ryan Murphy’s The Politician for Netflix and recently wrapped production on Zombieland 2. She is repped by CAA.
Silberman, whose deal was brokered by UTA and Myman Greenspan, wrote and produced Olivia Wilde's upcoming directorial debut, Booksmart, out May 24, and was behind recent MGM release Isn't It Romantic.
