Netflix’s comedy film Murder Mystery 2, starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, will film in Paris and the Caribbean.
Jeremy Garelick (The Break-Up and The Wedding Ringer) will direct the sequel, taking over from Kyle Newachek. Garelick will also do a polish of the sequel's script that was written by James Vanderbilt, who also wrote the first film.
Murder Mystery saw Sandler, who played a cop, and his wife Aniston take a trip to Europe where they were framed for murder after boarding a billionaire’s yacht, which forced them to go on the run and solve the murder themselves.
The film, which was set in Monaco, but shot scenes in Italy, was a huge success on Netflix watched by over 73m households in its first four weeks.
One of the appealing factors for filming in Paris is the TRIP, a 30% tax rebate for international productions. Live-action features need to shoot for at least five days in France and spend a minimum of $305,000 (€250,000) or 50% of the budget to qualify. Overseas French territories such as the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe also operate the same incentives structure.
Further details of the upcoming sequel will be revealed soon.
