Vertical Entertainment US is about to drop a new romantic comedy movie, Maybe I Do, featuring a star-studded cast.
The trailer came in a couple of days ago, presenting the lead casts, Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey and the icons of rom-coms, Richard Gere (Pretty Woman), Diane Keaton (Annie Hall), Susan Sarandon (Bull Durham) and William H. Macy (The Cooler), rounding up the main cast.
What’s The Storyline for ‘Maybe I Do’?
Roberts and Bracey, who previously collaborated in the Christmas rom-com Holidate (2020), display their on-screen chemistry again as a young couple, Michelle and Allen, seeking to rediscover their relationship after a fallout.
With their relationship at stake, Michelle and Allen decide to invite their parents to meet, Richard Gere and Diane Keaton playing Michelle’s parents and William H. Macy and Susan Sarandon playing Allen’s folks.
Ironically, their parents are already too familiar with each other. As hinted in the trailer, their folks are involved in discreet affairs- Gere's character hooking up with Sarandon's. Meanwhile, Keaton's character is also involved with Macy's.
With the family complications and couple swapping, we can only hope Michelle and Allen mend their relationship healthily in the end.
'Maybe I Do' Producers
Maybe I Do is produced by Fifth Season and distributed by Vertical Entertainment.
It is written and directed by Michael Jacobs, whose previous works include Boy Meets World, Girl Meets World, Charles in Charge, Dinosaurs, The Torkenlsons and My Two Dads.
