Until recently, Nancy Meyers was working on her next big rom-com for Netflix. However, it has been reported that for budget reasons, Netflix has canceled the project. Here’s everything we know so far about paris supreme and its communicated cancellation.

He nancy meyers the movie was the first announced by Deadline it will be in development on Netflix in April 2022. At the time, the project was described as an “ensemble comedy.”

Meyers would serve as a writer, producer and director for the Netflix film and is best known for titles like It’s complicated, soldier benjaminand Someone has to concede.

Paris Paramount would have been the first major project Netflix would have partnered with Meyers on. Previously, Netflix and Meyers worked on the father of the bride part 3 (sort of), launched during the pandemic on Netflix social channels.

We want to emphasize that the title Paris Paramount was a codename/working title used in various places to refer to the project; however, no official title had been given to the film.

The budget for the film was initially reported to be in excess of $100 million, but was eventually increased to $130 million before it was revealed that Meyers was seeking $150 million to produce the film. However, Recently reported deadline that due to budget issues, Netflix ultimately decided to cancel the project.

In the report, the studio was happy to work with a budget of $130 million, but Meyers was pushing for an additional $20 million, on top of “above-the-line costs” already at $80 million. There is currently no confirmation of where the project will land next, if at all.

Of course, the budget of a Netflix movie is not comparable to the budget of a traditional movie. As Joe Russo recently explained for the gray man (which exceeded $200 million), “Netflix is ​​obviously different than other studios, because they have acquisitions that are against budget. And you know, when you say $200 million on Netflix, that’s different than $200 million, say, on Disney.”

Maria Venieu serves as a casting director on the film, with kira goldberg working on the project since the end of Netflix.

What is the plot of paris supreme on netflix?

So far only a brief synopsis of the film has surfaced:

“A talented young writer/director falls for a producer, and the pair end up making several hit movies before calling it quits romantically and professionally. However, the two are forced to get back together when a big new project comes along, and they find themselves back together and having to deal with high stakes and volatile stars.

THR notes that the film’s story supposedly shares parallels to Meyers’ own life.

This is going to be a huge cast with at least eight main supporting characters and five minor supporting roles from what we’ve heard so far.
