The film is produced by Gloria Sanchez Productions and will be distributed by Lionsgate.

It follows two friends leaving their town in the Midwest to go on vacation for the first time in Vista Del Mar, Florida.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp recently mocked & # 39; c-list & # 39; celebrities because he threatened to withdraw from the state according to the strict anti-abortion law he signed.

& # 39; I understand that some people do not like this new law. I agree with that, & Kemp said at the republican state convention, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. & # 39; We have been chosen to do what is right and to stand up for precious life is always the right thing to do. & # 39;

The pair was the creative force behind & # 39; Bridesmaids & # 39;

& # 39; We are the party of freedom and opportunity. We value and protect the innocent life – even though it makes the C-list celebrities screech, & he added.

Georgia has become an important film location for television programs & films because of the 30 percent tax benefit that the state offers.

It has resulted in nearly $ 3 billion in Hollywood productions taking place there, including Netflix & # 39; s Stranger Things and Ozark series.

Georgia & # 39; s controversial ban – along with new anti-abortion bans in Alabama and Missouri – is seen as an attempt to bring the issue back to national stage and possibly force a challenge from the Supreme Court to Roe v. 1973 ruling that anchors abortion rights in the US.
