Netflix announced that video streaming service has acquired worldwide rights to “The Last Letter From Your Lover,” outside of StudioCanal territories. The studio will still release the film in the UK, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, with SVENSK distributing the film in Scandinavia. If you don’t live in those territories, you’ll have a chance to see the movie on Netflix.
Directed by Augustine Frizzell, the movie stars Academy Award Nominee Felicity Jones, Golden Globe and Emmy Nominee Shailene Woodley, Callum Turner, Nabhaan Rizwan, Joe Alwyn, and Ncuti Gatwa.
The movie is based on the best-selling novel by Jojo Moyes, which has sold over 3M copies worldwide and has been translated into 33 languages. Nick Payne and Esta Spalding adapted the screenplay. Netflix didn’t announce a premiere date for the movie on the platform, so you have time to read the original novel before seeing the adaptation. You can find Jojo Moyes’ work right here on Amazon.
The official logline reads, “The story follows Ellie (Felicity Jones), a young journalist in contemporary London who uncovers a series of love letters in the archives which tell the story of an intensely romantic but star-crossed affair in the 1960s between Jennifer Stirling (Shailene Woodley) & Anthony O’Hare (Callum Turner). As Ellie is drawn into the story, she becomes obsessed with discovering the lovers’ identities and finding out how their love story ends.”
Pete Czernin and Graham Broadbent produced the movie, with Simone Urdl and Jennifer Weiss. Felicity Jones and Shailene Woodley served as executive producers on the project.
Netflix subscribers have several big releases to stream, and even more coming over the next two months. Subscribers can look forward to “American Son,” “I Lost My Body,” “Queer Eye: We’re in Japan,” and “The Irishman.” On the animated slate, you have “She-Ra and the Princess of Power: Season 4,” and “The Dragon Prince: Season 3.” The December schedule already includes Ryan Reynolds’ “6 Underground,” “The Two Popes,” and “Lost in Space: Season 2.” Netflix has several other big projects on the way, like “The Witcher” adaptation, “Green Eggs and Ham,” ” Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings,” and “To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.”
