The Family Affair release updates
Netflix has not announced an official release date yet, and we’re not expecting the streamer to do so anytime soon. Production hasn’t even started yet. Netflix typically announces release dates for its shows and movies when they’re close to the end of post-production or after post-production is completely finished. For now, our best release date prediction would be sometime in 2023. We’ll definitely share the official release date once Netflix announces it.
The Family Affair cast
The only cast members announced so far are Academy Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman, Neighbors‘ Zac Efron, and The In Between‘s Joey King. All three actors star in the leading roles that are currently under wraps.
This isn’t the first time Kidman and Efron have worked together. They both starred in the crime drama film The Paperboy. Also, this isn’t Kidman, Efron, or King’s first project with Netflix. Kidman had a role in the Netflix musical film The Prom. Efron has a movie titled Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile and an original series titled Down to Earth with Zac Efron currently streaming on Netflix. Lastly, King starred in the lead role in Netflix’s The Kissing Booth trilogy.
As more cast members are announced, we’ll be sure to share their names.
The Family Affair synopsis
Netflix provided us with the movie’s plot and we shared it below.
A surprising romance [that] kicks off comic consequences for a young woman, her mother and her movie star boss as they face the complications of love, sex and identity.
Although Kidman, Efron, and King’s characters’ names and descriptions have not been revealed yet, I think it’s pretty obvious who they will be playing in the film based on the synopsis.
