Be still our beating hearts! While there might never be a better rom-com pairing than that of Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, thanks to iconic films Pretty Woman and Runaway Bride, we're about to get the next best thing—the adorable onscreen pairing of Roberts and Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney.
The Hollywood pair are set to star in Universal Pictures' latest romantic comedy project, Ticket To Paradise, set to be directed by Ol Parker (who also helmed Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again). According to Deadline, Roberts and Clooney will star as “a divorced couple that teams up and travels to Bali to stop their daughter from making the same mistake they think they made 25 years ago,” getting married.
The Hollywood Reporter adds Parker and Daniel Pipski wrote the script, and Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title will produce alongside Sarah Harvey and Deborah Balderstone. Interestingly, filming for the blockbuster will take place in Australia, with shooting expected to commence in Queensland's Whitsundays later in 2021 and the federal government granting the production $6.4 million in funding to make the movie down under.
It's not the first time the pair has worked together either, so there's sure to be some great chemistry. Clooney and Roberts have previously starred alongside one another in Jodie Foster's Money Monster and in the Ocean's Eleven movie franchise.
Not much else is known about the upcoming project, but one thing's for sure—it's going to the top of our must-watch list.
