Netflix release first look of Brooke Shields rom-com 'Mother of the Bride'

Brooke Shields is set to star in the upcoming Netflix new rom-com Mother of the Bride.

The streamer has released first-look images of her starring as Lana, alongside Miranda Cosgrove, who plays her daughter, Emma, ahead of its arrival on Netflix on May 9th.

Per a synopsis for Mother of the Bride: “Lana’s daughter Emma returns from abroad and drops a bombshell: She’s getting married.”

Emma’s destination wedding will be in one month in Thailand, and things go away when Lana learns “the man who captured Emma’s heart is the son of the man who broke hers years ago.”

Mother of the Bride is directed by Mark Waters, who made 2004’s Mean Girls, and also stars Chad Michael Murray, Rachael Harris, Sean Teale, Benjamin Bratt, Michael McDonald, Wilson Cruz, Tasneem Roc and Dalip Sondhi.

Last year, Sheilds celebrated the start of production, taking to Instagram in April to write: “Let the adventure begin!! Filming is officially underway for our new @netflix movie #MotheroftheBride. So excited to spend time with my amazing costars! Can’t wait for a few more to get here.”

Shields, who previously starred in Netflix’s A Castle For Christmas, also quipped that she hoped any real-life mother-of-the-bride duties were “far less dramatic” than they were in the film while sharing that she was “so excited to get to work” on the uplifting rom-com.
