Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell could soon join the likes of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, and Julia Roberts and Richard Gere as the next rom-com icons. On March 9, Entertainment Tonight published photographs of the “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Euphoria” stars filming a flirty scene for a movie in Australia, which set the internet ablaze. While the nitty-gritty details about the movie are being kept under wraps at the moment, we know just enough to say it’s going to be one we don’t want to miss.
On Jan. 11, Deadline reported that Sweeney and Powell signed on to star in a currently untitled rated-R rom-com directed by Will Gluck. Sweeney will serve as an executive producer for the project as well. Meanwhile, the film will see Powell return to his romantic-comedy roots. After all, before he starred in the Oscar-nominated “Top Gun: Maverick,” Powell got his big break in the Netflix rom-com “Set It Up,” starring alongside Zoey Deutch.
Discussing the new film in a March 22 interview with ET, Sweeney stayed tight-lipped about the plot but did tease a little bit of what fans can expect. “Just know the movie is going to be so much fun. It is so funny,” she said, adding, “It gives love, it gives humour, it gives sex. It gives all the great things that make a movie. And we want to bring back the good ol’ rom-coms with Will Gluck, and we’re having a great time doing it.”
If Gluck’s other movies like “Easy A” and “Friends With Benefits” are anything to go by, this rom-com is going to be an instant classic.
