The movie gods finally heard our prayers: Emma Roberts will dip her toes into the beloved romantic comedy genre for the upcoming Netflix movie Holidate.
According to Variety, "the story follows Sloane (Emma) and Jackson, two perpetual singles who hate the holidays since their continual lack of a significant other subjects them to the judgment of their family members or stuck with clingy, awkward dates. After they meet, however, they pledge to be each other’s plus-ones for each holiday celebration over the course of one year."
Filmmaker John Whitesell (Malibu’s Most Wanted) is set to direct the project that will reportedly begin production later this year. More than enough time to find the perfect actor to bring the role of Jackson to life.
