EXCLUSIVE: Emma Roberts has made another date with Holidate screenwriter Tiffany Paulsen in About Fate. Paulsen will pen script with Marius Weisberg directing. Vincent Newman, Marina Bespalov and Vladimir Koshelev will produce.
The romantic comedy is a tale of two people who believe in love, but seem to never be able to find its true meaning. In a wild twist of events, fate puts each in the other’s path on a stormy New Year’s Eve and comedy and chaos ensue. Roberts‘ leading man is currently being cast.
Roberts and Paulsen also teamed on the Warner Bros feature Nancy Drew when the actress was a teen, and Holidate was a huge hit for Netflix last holiday season. It’s another reunion of sorts as Newman produced the popular comedy We’re the Millers also starring Roberts.
Roberts has several projects in active development as both actress and producer. She is currently producing the series First Kill for Netflix through her Belletrist Productions.
Endeavor Content is handling worldwide sales for About Fate. Filming begins June in Boston.
Weisberg’s 2008 debut film Hitler Goes Kaput! scored at the Russian box office and became the bestselling Russian-language comedy in Europe that year. His following four comedy features were also No. 1 hits in Russian-language territories. He is a graduate of USC’s School of Cinematic Arts.
Roberts is represented by CAA and manager David Sweeney. Paulsen is repped by Verve and attorneys Adam Kaller and Duncan Hedges.
