The rom-com came back big this Summer thanks to the success of both “Crazy Rich Asians” in cinemas, and both “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” and “Set It Up” on Netflix. All three have scored over 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, with the Lana Condor and Noah Centineo-led ‘Boys’ the highest with a pretty astonishing 96% (7.4/10) which puts it amongst ‘best of year’ territory.
Now, a sequel for “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” has been revealed to be the inaugural film in the recently announced Paramount and Netflix agreement which will see the Hollywood studio produce a slate of exclusive films for the streamer.
The original film was produced by Awesomeness, which was recently bought out by Viacom, with Paramount most likely to produce the sequel itself this time which will likely be based on the next book in Jenny Han’s popular young adult novel series.
The deal is being seen as one of the first in a new paradigm for Hollywood, one in which the smaller studios end up becoming, in part, production companies for a streaming service. A24 recently signed a similar deal with Apple.
