Earlier this year Yes Day came out. It is a family comedy about parents having to say yes to the kids’ ideas for 24 hours. Well, Netflix has ordered another one.
The premise of the original was simple:
A mom and dad who usually say no decide to say yes to their kids’ wildest requests with a few ground rules on a whirlwind day of fun and adventure.
I did see it and it was a fairly good comedy. Fun for all the family. Did I watch it because I’m a little bit in love with Jennifer Garner? Well, yes, I’ve been a fan of her since Alias, but I was treated to a fun movie in Yes Day.
Garner is quoted as saying:
“I had the most gratifying, creative, experience bringing Yes Day to life, seeing Netflix’s global reach as the Torres family wreaked havoc in homes all over the world makes me eager to dive in with another Day of Yes; I can’t wait.”
She will be producing the sequel, alongside Netflix, and it seems she has signed to do a few more movies for the streaming service. She said about Scott Stuber, Head of Global Film for Netflix:
“Having known Scott for fifteen years, there is a reason his relationships in the business stand the test of time. He is as true blue as he is smart and intuitive about filmmaking, I am honored to join the awesome group of creatives in the Netflix family, and I am extremely excited to work with their passionate and innovative teams across all departments.”
Outside of this deal Garner has a movie coming out called The Adam Project. She will be starring alongside Ryan Reynolds, Zoe Saldana, Catherin Keener, and Mark Ruffalo. It’s being directed by Shawn Levy of Stranger Days fame. The plot for this involves a man travelling back in time to get help from his 13-year-old self. It is due out next year.
There is no news on a date for Yes Day 2 at the moment.
