Disney is developing a new film for Disney+ called “Prom Pact “, which is being created by Julie Bowen, who previously starred in “Modern Family”, along with her producing partner Rachael Field.
Disney hasn’t officially announced any details on “Prom Pact” yet, but last year, Julie Bowen spoke with Meet Cute about the project and revealed some details on the film.
I work with my producing partner, Rachel Field, and we talk about this all the time, because we have a rom-com that we’re doing with Disney Plus for teenagers called Prom Pact. The main character is a feminist, and she doesn’t believe in this idea of falling in love. It goes back to Shakespeare: she’s a little bit strident, very type A, and she doesn’t want to believe especially in heteronormative love, because she’s so liberal. But then she falls and there’s that undeniable chemistry. Look, I’m way older than my target audience, but I still remember that first gut punch of a feeling when you’re like, “Oh my God, are we gonna kiss?” That is the amount of chemistry where you cannot believe that this is a legal drug. But I think that how rom-coms have changed is that they are more woke. You look at Booksmart and the romance between Amy and Hope and seeing them making out in the bathroom makes you go, “Oh, I’m not gay, but, I’m in.” Before we only wanted to see white people kissing under a starry sky. Now, we want to see everyone. It’s the romance, dropping of all the barriers of being vulnerable that gets us. That moment always takes my breath away.
According to The DisInsider, Anya Adams is doing to be directing the film. She has previously worked on “The Good Place” and “Black-ish”.
And that production is due to begin at the end of February and will end in the second week of April, unless there are any additional delays.
With filming set to begin soon hopefully, it won’t be too long until Disney reveal some more details on this film.
