Netflix is teaming up with Sofia Carson for another romance title, with Corey Mylchreest set to be the co-lead. Production is due to get underway in the United Kingdom this August, and here’s everything we know about the project so far. 

Adapting Julia Whelan’s best-selling novel My Oxford Year, which was first released in April 2018, the new movie was first penned by Allison Burnett with the latest revisions from Savion Einstein. 

Iain Morris, best known for the three seasons of The Inbetweeners and the two follow-up movies, will be directing the feature film.

Here’s the official logline for the new movie:

When Anna, an ambitious young American woman, sets out for Oxford University to fulfill a childhood dream, she has her life completely on track until she meets a charming and clever local who profoundly alters both of their lives.

A previous iteration of this film was in development quite some time ago. Back in 2015, it was announced that Temple Hill and ScreenGems were producing a feature film with the shorter name of just Oxford. Melissa Benoist and Sam Heughan were set to lead in that iteration, with Allison Burnett again penning the script and Gordon Anderson set to direct. That iteration never made it beyond development and into production. Following that iteration going inactive, Netflix optioned the title back in 2021.

The movie is Sofia Carson’s fifth major Netflix movie. Available titles include 2020’s Feel the Beat and, more recently, the incredibly popular Purple Hearts, released in 2022. Coming up next is Carry-On, in which she’ll co-star alongside Jason Bateman and Taron Egerton. Just recently, Carson wrapped production on another romance movie for Netflix, The Life List.

Corey Mylchreest is no stranger to Netflix, either. The actor is best known for his role as Young King George in Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story and also starred in Netflix’s The Sandman.

Temple Hill Entertainment is producing the feature film, with Laura Quicksilver and George Berman managing the production and Caroline Levy serving as executive producer. Temple Hill Entertainment has previously worked with Netflix on We Have a Ghost and Fatherhood.
