“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” director Ol Parker is directing the original comedy that stars Clooney and Roberts as exes who find themselves on a shared mission to stop their lovestruck daughter from making the same mistake they once made.
Parker and Daniel Pipski wrote the script, and “Ticket to Paradise” is already slated for release on Sept. 30, 2022.
Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title will produce “Ticket to Paradise” alongside Sarah Harvey and Deborah Balderstone. Clooney and Grant Heslov will also produce for their Smokehouse Pictures, alongside Red Om Films’ Roberts, Lisa Gillan, and Marisa Yeres Gill.
Amelia Granger, head of film and TV, will oversee development on the project on behalf of Working Title, with SVP of Production Erik Baiers and VP of Production Lexi Barta on behalf of Universal.
