Titled The Materialists, the romcom-in-progress was inspired by James L. Brooks’s 1980s films Broadcast News and Terms of Endearment.

In a recent interview with GQ, Song and producer Christine Vachon revealed few details about the new project other than to suggest that “The Materialists” would be quite unlike “Past Lives.” Vachon was quoted as saying that “It feels like she makes a different movie every time, that she’s going to be the kind of a filmmaker who doesn’t make the same movie twice.”

In an article for World of Reel on Tuesday of this week, Jordan Ruimy offered this synopsis of “The Materialists: “Set against the vibrant backdrop of New York City, a city that never sleeps and is known for its diverse and dynamic relationships, ‘Materialists’ provides a unique glimpse into the lives of the city’s elite.
