The pair have joined the cast of Ticket to Paradise, a romantic comedy directed by Ol Parker for Universal Pictures.
Julia and George
Julia and George have been close friends since they met on set of Ocean’s Eleven franchise back in 2001. They also starred in Money Monster together in 2016.
According to Deadline, “This deal is important to those wondering when film studios are going to stop selling pricey star packages to streamers because of the uncertainty of the theatrical marketplace, and once again step up to considerable projects that can work in theaters.”
“Sources said when this project came together quickly through Working Title, streamers quickly circled. But Universal’s top brass said, no, we are in the theatrical movie business, and this one isn’t traveling,” the outlet added.
