Mike Fleming Jr for Deadline:

Cate Blanchett, Coco Francini and Andrew Upton of Dirty Films will produce alongside FilmNation Entertainment. Jerome Duboz will serve as executive producer. FilmNation will serve as the studio for the feature, set to begin production later this year.

In this sci-fi love story, a test has been discovered that measures whether married couples are truly in love, and institutes have opened to help couples succeed. Anna (Buckley) is skeptical of the positive result she’s received with her longtime partner, so she starts working in a love institute as an assistant to Trevor (Ahmed) a mysterious and dedicated instructor.

Two-year old Apple Original Films continues to build its momentum coming off its first Best Picture Oscar win for “CODA.” Next up is the Cooper Raiff – Dakota Johnson comedy “Cha Cha Real Smooth,” which won the 2022 Sundance Film Festival U.S. Dramatic Audience Award, and premieres in theaters and globally June 17 on Apple TV+.
