If you are on the Grocery List, you got the news before Emily Henry made the announcement on her Instagram (Yes, this is a sign to join her Grocery List). The New York Times bestselling author announced on her Instagram that People We Meet On Vacation officially has a movie deal. Here is everything we know so far about the upcoming adaptation.

What glorious bookish news! Not only will we always have Emily Henry’s books, but now we will have a movie! Henry announced the news on her instagram asking, “How’s everyone’s Tuesday?” It’s pretty good now, Emily Henry. It is pretty freaking good now.


We are all in love with People We Meet On Vacation and a movie that follows Poppy and Alex on their next summer vacation is definitely going to be amazing. Berkley Books published the novel in 2021 and it hit No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list. It spent over a year on the paperbacks list and sold over a million copies.

What We Know So Far:

Let’s get right to everything we know about the upcoming adaptation. Deadline announced that Brett Haley is set to direct the 3000 Pictures adaptation of Henry’s novel. They also released numerous others involved in the making of the film.

“Yulin Kuang is adapting the screenplay, with Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey and Isaac Klausner producing. Laura Quicksilver is overseeing the project for Temple Hill, with Erin Siminoff and Sophie Kaplan overseeing for the studio.”

Emily Henry sent out touching words in her Grocery List email (seriously, go subscribe!). She said,

“We have our script. And I love it so much that when I finished reading and set it aside, I just started weeping. I felt seen in the exact way that Alex’s story made Poppy feel seen.”

Gushing yet? The author continued,

“It’s like Yulin reached into my heart and brain and pulled these characters outside of my body. She knows them better than I do at this point, I think. She wrote new jokes that felt so perfectly attuned to them.”

She ended her subscriber email with a thank you to all of us for being on this wild ride with Alex, Poppy, and herself. I hope she knows we will stay on it forever. She also included her latest grocery item. Does the name make sense now?
