Netflix has set a release date for its new romantic comedy, Mother of the Bride, starring Benjamin Bratt, Brooke Shields, and Miranda Cosgrove. Here’s everything you need to know.

What’s on Netflix was the first to report about the new movie back in February 2021. We reported that Mark Waters is on board to serve as the director of the movie. He’s previously worked with Netflix on the 2021 rom-com, He’s All That, but also directed Vampire Academy (2014) and The Spiderwick Chronicles (2008).

Writing the rom-com is Robin Bernheim Burger, who wrote on all three of Netflix’s The Princess Switch movies and worked on A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding.

Caroline Ho serves as the composer of the movie with Brad Krevoy producing.

Here’s the logline for the new movie:

“When Lana’s daughter Emma returns from a year abroad in London, she drops a bombshell on her mother: she’s getting married. On an island. Next month! Things only get worse when Lana discovers that the mystery man who stole her daughter’s heart just so happens to be the son of the man who broke hers years ago.”
