Luke Bracey has been asked about his upcoming drama/comedy movie titled ‘Maybe I Do‘ starring Emma Roberts while promoting his latest projects. Luke talked about what it was like working with Emma again, after Holidate, and revealed a little more about their upcoming movie and how the project came to be.
Do you and Holidate co-star Emma Roberts have another movie together?
We just wrapped Maybe I Do. My parents are played by Susan Sarandon and William H. Macy, and hers are played by Diane Keaton and Richard Gere. It’s a story about Emma and me deciding if we want to get married or not.
Did they reunite you and Emma for Maybe I Do because you had worked together successfully before?
Well, Emma and me, because we had so much fun doing Holidate, once we finished, we thought, Oh, we’ve got to do this again. We became really good friends. Going to work was an absolute dream when you can go to work with one of your mates. And so, ever since Holidate, we’ve been looking at scripts, and one of us would find one and then send it to the other. We just wanted to make sure it was the right one.
At the end of 2021, Emma sent me this script and said, “Please read it. I think it’s really good. Would love to do it with you.” I had one read of the script and thought, “This is going to be amazing.” And then to find out that Diane Keaton, Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon and Bill Macy are in it, it was just a no-brainer. That was how it came together.
It’s a really great romantic drama-comedy about what’s it like to be with someone for your whole life. And can you progress together, and can you grow together, or does something happen and you fall apart? So that’s a funny movie that we just finished filming about a month ago.
I think for Emma and me, it took what we did in Holidate in a way, but it had some meat on the bones that Holidate didn’t. It had a different weight to it than Holidate did. We still have great moments and a bit of comedy, but there were more stakes at play in this one. Which is something that Emma and I were really interested in doing together. The next one we wanted to do, we wanted to make sure that it was something different and something that was the next step for us.
