According To Nancy Meyers, Rumours Of A Sequel To “The Holiday” Are “Not True”
The actors and crew of the Christmas romance film The Holiday are actually taking a permanent vacation from the series.
Despite recent speculations to the contrary, according to the writer and director Nancy Neyers and actors Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, there won’t be a follow-up to the most romantic wife-swap ever broadcast.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science responded to Meyer’s Instagram post which denied the claims with three crying emojis as they had lost a future Oscar sweep that would never have happened.
In a statement to People, Winslet provided more confirmation of the claim, saying, “I guarantee that, neither one agent nor representative nor anyone from the first one around has had any communication with me about that, that has never come up. I can tell you that”.
Apart from the rumors, there is some good news for the supporters and fans of Meyer according to what we read on Deadline, Meyer is working on her first movie in seven years. She also signed to direct a comedy Netflix movie with Jamie Foxx instead of another wine-slinging Holiday romp.

The film was distributed by Columbia Pictures in North America and by Universal pictures overseas. It earned an overall total of over $205 million worldwide against a budget of $85 million.
The plot of the movie deals with a comedy romance of two women troubled with guy-problem swap homes in each other’s countries, where they meet with a local guy and fall in love. The Holiday is both extremely simple and intensely complicated.
The main characters of the movie were Amanda (Diaz) and Iris (Winslet) from opposite sides of Atlanta who swap homes during the Christmas season, both women wanted to get away with the men in their lives and fall in love with new men.
The movie is incredibly long for a Christmas rom-com, which is two hours and 18 minutes long. But the series of impeccable scenes engage the viewers and minutes fly by without knowing. Nancy Meyer knows what women need.
