If 2023 was the year of the nepo baby, then 2024 is the year of the parent-child duo. 

Strictly Confidential, the new film written and directed by Damian Hurley, drops in the US and Latin America on Friday, with the lead character played by none other than Damian's mother, actress and model Elizabeth Hurley.

Damian, 22, directed his mother, 58, in raunchy scenes with a woman several years younger, telling The Times: "I hate to say that it felt totally normal." The film also features swimwear from Elizabeth's beachwear brand, in a pairing of creative and commercial. 

The duo are not the first to combine forces. 

We're taking a look back at all the moments parents and children have creatively collaborated in recent years.
