Netflix and Treehouse Pictures are reuniting Set It Up stars Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell and writer/producer Katie Silberman for a new romantic comedy, tentatively titled Most Dangerous Game, set to go into production in early 2020.
The producers are Treehouse Pictures’ Juliet Berman and Justin Nappi, as well as Katie Silberman. Deutch and Powell are executive producing.
“The pairing of Zoey and Glen’s undeniable spark with Katie’s razor sharp dialogue was such an important factor in the success of Set It Up and we cannot wait to build on that even more with Most Dangerous Game,” said Nappi. “While it was clear that audiences were clamoring for a sequel, we are excited by the thought of creating a new, distinct film that explores different romantic comedy tropes while still being anchored in everything that we loved about the first movie.”
Deutch will next be seen starring in Ryan Murphy’s The Politician for Netflix which will release in September and recently wrapped production on Zombieland 2 for Sony Pictures, releasing in October. Her film Buffaloed, which she also produced, premiered at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.
Powell is currently filming Jerry Bruckheimer Films/Paramount Pictures’ Top Gun: Maverick with Tom Cruise and Jennifer Connelly for release in Summer 2020.
Silberman most recently wrote and produced the upcoming feature Booksmart. The film, which is directed by Olivia Wilde, opens May 24th and premiered at last month’s South by Southwest Film Festival to rave reviews. Silberman’s script for Set It Up was on the 2015 Blacklist and she also wrote Isn’t It Romantic, starring Rebel Wilson, Adam Devine and Liam Hemsworth.
