Netflix’s new romance-comedy film The Perfect Date, which recently premiered on the streaming platform, was filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The Perfect Date is based on the novel The Stand-In by Steve Bloom. Filming of the movie began in March 2018 and was directed by Chris Nelson, with the screenplay by Steve Bloom and Randall Green.
The film stars Noah Centineo as Brooks Rattigan, Laura Marano as Celia Liberman, Camila Mendes as Shelby Pace, Odiseas Gerorgiadis as Murph, and Matt Walsh as Charlie Rattigan.
The Perfect Date follows high school senior Brooks Rattigan (Noah Centineo), who wants to go to Yale but doesn’t have the money to finance his dream. But with the help of his programmer best friend Murph (Odiseas Goergiadis), he launches an app which allows him to promote himself as a stand-in date. But he did not anticipate that through his dating app he would eventually meet someone he actually cares about.
