A new psychological thriller film titled My Lovely Wife dubbed Mr. & Mrs. Smith meets Dexter, will be added to Netflix’s growing film library. The same-named novel by Samantha Downing served as the basis for the film.
Julia Hart, whose previous work includes Miss Stevens, Stargirl, and Fast Color, will pen the script and helm Netflix’s My Lovely Wife. Jordan Horowitz, who has previously worked with Hart on various projects, will co-write the script.
The producers of My Lovely Wife are Roy Lee and Miri Yoon for Vertigo and Brian Kavanaugh Jones, and Fred Berger for Automatic. Executive producers are Downing, Sean Berard, and Barbara Poelle.
In 2020, an Amazon version of My Lovely Wife was in development. Nicole Kidman would star and produce through her Blossom Films company. The rights now belong to Netflix because that project was never completed.
What is the Story of My Lovely Wife About?
My Lovely Wife, based on Samantha Downing’s 2019 novel of the same name, is a Mr. & Mrs. Smith meets Dexter type of film on Netflix. The novel’s synopsis is as follows:
“Our love story is simple. I met a gorgeous woman. We fell in love. We had kids. We moved to the suburbs. We told each other our biggest dreams, and our darkest secrets. And then we got bored. We look like a normal couple. We’re your neighbors, the parents of your kid’s friend, the acquaintances you keep meaning to get dinner with. We all have secrets to keeping a marriage alive. Ours just happens to be getting away with murder.”
Who is in the Cast of My Lovely Wife?
