Hallie Meyers-Shyher wrote the screenplay and will make her directorial debut with the rom-com. Open Road Films is targeting a late 2017 theatrical release.
“Home Again is a funny and sparkling script that will be brought to life by the incomparable Reese Witherspoon,” stated Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films. “Nancy Meyers has brought audiences some of their all-time favorites and has a proven track record at the box office. We are proud to be in business with this family and the entire team.”
The Plot: Home Again is the story of a recently separated mother of two (Witherspoon) whose new life in Los Angeles is overturned when she decides to take in three young, charismatic guys who become part of her unconventional family.
