The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to produce a Netflix film to ‘rebuild their Hollywood dream’ after they parted ways with Spotify.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly bought the rights to Carley Fortune’s novel Meet Me At The Lake, which experts could’ve cost them up to $3.8 million.
The production will mark the couple’s first off-camera project together.
Meet Me At The Lake tells the story about two people who started a romantic relationship in their 30s – just like Meghan and Harry.
The novel also describes the trauma experienced by a character whose parents tragically died in a car crash. It also covers topics including substance use and alcohol – issues which the Duke of Sussex talked about in his book Spare.
The novel is also based in Toronto, where Meghan lived while filming Suits.
Speaking to The Sun, an insider said: “The themes of the book gripped the couple and it was chosen for their first adaptation with Netflix.”
This comes after the Sussexes lost their deal with music and podcast giant Spotify after only one series of Meghan’s podcast.
Many PR experts have questioned why the rights of the successful book were sold to the Sussexes as t would likely have been chosen by other experienced producers.
After stepping down from their royal duties, Harry and Meghan have caused controversy over their Netflix series titled ‘Harry and Meghan’ and the duke’s memoir.
Both the memoir and the series made strings of accusations against members of the Royal Family, most notably the Prince William.
In one paragraph, Harry accused his brother of attacking him at Frogmore Cottage and pushing him that he fell into a dog bowl.
Harry is currently working on a series based on the Invictus Games. Heart of Invictus is set to be released later this year.
