Speaking about working with Reese on her directorial debut Aline said: "I'm the hugest Reese Witherspoon fan on earth, not just of her immense talents as an actor but also her producing skills.

"I couldn't be more excited to direct this movie for Netflix, working alongside Aggregate and Hello Sunshine".

Because one movie wasn't enough, Reese is also working with Netflix on a second rom-com named The Cactus.

Based on Sarah Haywood's best selling novel of the same name, the story will follow a woman who rethinks her life after an unplanned pregnancy at the age of 45.

Her pregnancy leads her on a journey "towards love, family and learning to embrace the unexpected".

Speaking about the signings, Reese said that both films "blend everything we love about traditional rom-coms with strong, smart and determined female leads."

She added: "We have been looking for the right feature opportunities to collaborate with Ted Sarandos, Scott Stuber and the entire team at Netflix for a while and we couldn't be more excited to be working with them on these two romantic comedies.

"Both Sarah Haywood's and Aline Brosh McKenna's stories blend everything we love about traditional rom coms with strong, smart and determined female leads."

We don't have a release date for the rom-coms yet, as they've just been commissioned.

But we'll let you know as soon as we know more.

Reese established herself as the Queen of rom-coms through hits such as Legally Blonde, Just Like Heaven and Home Again.

More recently, she's starred in TV shows including Big Little Lies, The Morning Show and Little Fires Everywhere.

We're so excited to see Reese take on good old soppy romance again.
