Jojo Moyes’ ‘The Last Letter From Your Lover’ Is Coming To Netflix Next Year

It's been almost a year since we brought you the news that Netflix had acquired the rights to turn author Jojo Moyes' (of Me Before You fame) tear-jerking romance novel The Last Letter From Your Lover into a feature length film, and now we've FINALLY had word that it will be hitting our screens some time in 2021.

Hooray!

While filming had been put on hold due to the dreaded C word, actress Felicity Jones was spotted on set in Twickenham, south west London, earlier this week, shooting scenes for her latest movie alongside co-star Nabhaan Rizwan.

The pair in question is Jennifer Stirling (Woodley) and Anthony O'Hare (Turner), and so intense is their romance that Ellie becomes obsessed with finding them and discovering how their story ended.
