That is until now, and for the epic comeback, she's bringing alongside her someone who also hasn't been a part of a romantic comedy in decades, none other than George Clooney.

Their chemistry on screen first gained notoriety when they starred in 2001's Ocean's Eleven, and they most recently starred in Money Monster together, which was released in 2016.

When the film was first announced, George explained to Deadline the "I'll do it if you do it" situation the longtime friends and occasional co-stars found themselves in when the actress called him up to gauge his interest in the script.

The decision was definitely well worth it, and while they were filming, the father of two said: "We're having the time of our lives," about reuniting with Julia. George's last truly iconic rom-com was 1996's One Fine Day, starring Michelle Pfeiffer.
