Amazon Studios Will Ferrell Wedding Comedy Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon and Will Ferrell are headed to the altar in a new wedding comedy for Amazon Studios.

Amazon has landed rights to the untitled movie, from writer-director Nick Stoller, in which Witherspoon and Ferrell will star and produce under their respective banners. Jessica Elbaum and Ferrell will produce for Gloria Sanchez, with Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter producing for Hello Sunshine and the company’s Ashley Strumwasser serving as executive producer. Stoller — whose highly anticipated gay rom-com Bros, which he directed and co-wrote with star Billy Eichner, is due out Sep. 30 — will also produce for his Stoller Global Solutions alongside Conor Welch.

The world’s biggest movie star, it’s hardly a shock to discover that fans have been spending their weekend watching movies featuring Dwayne Johnson, but it’s still impressive that his reach covers multiple platforms.

While details of the movie’s plot are still being kept under wraps, the premise reportedly involves two weddings that are booked at the same venue on the same weekend. Sources say Amazon landed the rights to the project in a highly competitive situation with bids coming from both streamers and studios, which is logical given Witherspoon, Ferrell and Stoller’s stellar comedy resumes. To note, Hello Sunshine also has a number of high-profile projects in the works at Amazon, including the musical drama series Daisy Jones & The Six, starring Riley Keough and Sam Claflin, and the holiday romantic comedy Something From Tiffany’s, starring and executive produced by Zoey Deutch. After starring in hit dramas Big Little Lies, Little Fires Everywhere and The Morning Show, Witherspoon is set to return to her rom-com roots with the upcoming Your Place or Mine at Netflix.

Among Gloria Sanchez’s recent successes are Eurovision, in which Ferrell starred opposite Rachel McAdams, Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar, Hustlers and Booksmart. The company also has two multi-year first-look deals: one in television with Netflix, which came on the heels of the Emmy-nominated series Dead to Me, which will soon debut its third and final season; and a film deal at 20th Century Studios. Ferrell will next be seen in the Christmas musical Spirited, opposite Ryan Reynolds, which the company also produced for Apple TV+.

In addition to the buzz for Bros, Stoller has also helmed such critical and commercial hits as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and the Neighbors movies, with recent screenwriting credits on Zoolander 2, The Muppets and its sequel Muppets Most Wanted, and Dora and the Lost City of Gold. Stoller is currently in production on the Apple TV+ series Platonic, which he co-created and is co-showrunning alongside his wife, Francesca Delbanco, and where he reunites with Neighbors stars Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. Most recently, his Stoller Global Solutions company renewed an overall deal with Sony Pictures Television.

Ferrell is represented by UTA, Mosaic and The Lede Company; Witherspoon is represented by CAA, LBI Entertainment, attorney Gretchen Rush and The Lede Company; and Stoller is represented by UTA, Ziffren Brittenham and Narrative.

The Hollywood Reporter was first to report news of Amazon nabbing rights to the hot project.

Jesse Williams, Zoë Chao, Steve Zahn, Tig Notaro and Wesley Kimmel have joined the cast of Netflix’s upcoming romantic comedy Your Place or Mine, starring Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher.

Writer-director Aline Brosh McKenna saluted the new cast in a statement, saying, Our entire ‘Your Place or Mine’ team is thrilled to welcome these wonderful actors to the movie. They are supremely brilliant and talented and we can’t wait to embark on this journey with them.

Witherspoon and Kutcher star in the movie as Debbie and Peter, who are best friends and total opposites. She craves routine with her son in L.A. (Kimmel); he thrives on change in New York. When they swap houses and lives for a week, they discover what they think they want might not be what they really need. Details of how Williams, Chao, Zahn and Notaro work into the film’s plot are yet to be revealed.

On Saturday, Witherspoon announced that filming on the movie had officially begun, posting a few behind-the-scenes shots of the crew working in New York City on Instagram, writing, Heading back to my rom-com roots! Let’s do this!

Brosh McKenna, who makes her feature directorial debut with the project, also posted the group shot from set, with the caption, Female Filmmakers.

Your Place or Mine is produced by Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan for Aggregate Films, as part of their first-look deal with Netflix; Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter for Hello Sunshine; and Brosh McKenna for her Lean Machine banner.

After wrapping up a 12-year stint as Dr. Jackson Avery on Grey’s Anatomy, Williams has also joined Owen Wilson and Michael Peña in Paramount’s Secret Headquarters. In 2020, the actor appeared on Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere, starring and produced by Witherspoon. He is represented by CAA, Priya Satiani at Management 360, André Des Rochers of Granderson Des Rochers and Stephen Barnes of Morris, Yorn, Barnes, Levine, Krintzman, Rubenstein, Kohner and Gellman.

Recently seen in Downhill and on HBO Max’s Love Life, Chao is repped by CAA, B Company and James, Adams, Schreck, Rose, Dapello and Adams. Zahn, who starred in HBO’s breakout hit The White Lotus, is represented by UTA and Principal Entertainment LA.

Emmy-nominated actor and comedian Notaro most recently appeared in Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead and plays Commander Jett Reno in Star Trek: Discovery, and will soon star in the upcoming Netflix comedy We Have A Ghost. She is repped by ICM, MGMT. Entertainment and Ziffren, Brittenham. Kimmel — who has appeared on Good Girls, The Rookie and WandaVision — is repped by Kathy Bolde at Zuri Agency.
