Steve Falk is set to write and direct the film, while Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan will produce. The Rosie Project will follow the story of a university professor who is down on his luck and can’t seem to find the one. Due to this, he creates an over-the-top questionnaire in an effort to find a wife. Instead, the professor meets an unconventional woman who doesn’t match any of his “on paper” requirements, but soon learns that she may be the perfect woman for him.
While Cavill is known for his high-action and serious films, this film will be a positive change of pace for him. Cavill is set to shoot the sequel to Neflix’s Enola Holmes this fall as well as Vaughn’s new spy thriller Argyl. He is most recently set to star in Lionsgate’s anticipated Highlander reboot. He recently finished filming the second season of Netflix’s The Witcher, and is also set to return as Sherlock Holmes in the sequel to Enola Holmes with Millie Bobby Brown returning in the title role.
The Rosie Project is expected to shoot at the beginning of 2022.
