Deadline says the film is inspired by the 2016 German-language box office hit SMS Fur Dich, which is based on Sofie Cramer’s popular novel.
“It’s about a woman who, to ease the pain after tragically losing her fiancé, starts to send romantic texts to his old cell. It turns out, the phone number has been reassigned to a man across town suffering from similar heartbreak. The two meet and feel an undeniable connection, but can’t seem to leave the past behind. In this English language remake, the music and influence of Dion gives them the courage to take a chance on love again.”
Chopra Jonas’ upcoming slate includes The Matrix 4, Russo Brother’s Citadel, Netflix’s adaptation of the Man Booker Prize-winning novel The White Tiger, and We Can Be Heroes, directed by Robert Rodriguez.
