Washington: Pete Davidson and Kaley Cuoco`s upcoming romantic comedy film `Meet Cute` will premiere on September 21, the streamer announced on Tuesday. According to Variety, the movie, “Meet Cute,” takes its name from a well-known rom-com cliche and centres on Sheila (Cuoco), a woman who uses a time machine to recreate their first encounter in order to set up a blind date with Gary (Davidson).
Nevertheless, Sheila goes further back in time to mould Gary into her ideal man when he fails to live up to her expectations of him in the days that follow their magical night.
Alex Lehmann, who has also directed “Acidman,” “Paddleton,” and “Blue Jay,” is the director of “Meet Cute.”

They also serve as executive producers.
“If I had a time machine right now I`d be torn. Do I skip ahead to our release date or do I go back and relive the joy it was making this film? Lucky for me it`s a decision I don`t get to make,” Lehmann said in a statement.
