The Beach Read Movie Plot: What’s It About?
Beach Read is about a romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut who engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.
Beach Read Summary:
Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.
They’re polar opposites.
In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they’re living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer’s block.
Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel.
She’ll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he’ll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.
Who is Developing the Beach Read Movie?
The Beach Read movie is being made by 20th Century Studios with Original Film producing.
Yulin Kuang is writing the script and will be directing the Beach Read movie. I know it’s in good hands since she also wrote the script for the People We Meet on Vacation movie which Emily Henry adores.
Who is the Cast for the Beach Read Movie?

The Beach Read movie isn’t the only Emily Henry movie in the works. The People We Meet on Vacation movie is also in development. If they do well (which let’s be honest, they are going to be AMAZING!) I bet we will see more of Emily Henry’s books adapted into feature films.
